    New Balance Gear Lending at the Westin: Forget your workout gear? No problem! For a small fee, you can rent New Balance gear (shoes, clothes & socks) for the duration of your stay. Learn more here.


  1. Complimentary Fruit Water at the Westin: I know what you are thinking, how could WATER be something that you crave? Well, in the summer months, the Westin puts out a large jug in the bar area of absolutely delicious water that is filled with fresh fruit. When the conference leadership team held our site visit in Annapolis last summer, we couldn’t get enough of it! Grab some between conference sessions for a refreshing break.

  1. Food & Drink Options in Each Hotel: Loews is home to WEST, self-described as “a modern interpretation of the classic shore tavern.” The Westin offers a newly renovated bar/restaurant area for socializing and networking well into the evening!
