The word "conference" in a hotel's name might suggest that it's a place of all work and no play. Not so at Emory Conference Center Hotel. This is a full resort (spa, pools, fine dining, hiking) that also specializes in group events. Inspired architecturally by Frank Lloyd Wright and set in a 26-acre forest preserve, this Green Seal-approved property blends the casual elegance of prairie style and environmentally friendly policies with a 32,000-square-foot conference center. Along with the expected ballroom, meeting rooms and ergonomic furnishings, guests will also find the largest amphitheater in the southeast U.S. and a selection of unique venues for teambuilding events, such as Wisteria Lanes Bowling Alley.
