Why Biltmore? Top Ten Reasons
1. PUBLIC IMAGE
The Biltmore is a truly unique property in comparison to other business hotels and conference facilities. Built in 1926, it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1994 and is the only hotel with this designation in Florida. The hotel was restored pursuant to a Federal program which uses revenues from private sector operations to restore and maintain properties regarded as National treasures worthy of preserving in perpetuity. Given its status, the hotel is a preferred destination for heads-of-state and dignitaries as well as for political and government conferences. The Biltmore was selected as the White House hotel of choice for the Summit of the Americas and has also been the home to the offices of FTAA and the Governor for the past ten years. The total economic impact of the Biltmore is estimated at $110 million to the City annually. In light of these facts, the Biltmore is a perfect location for conferences, enabling companies to conduct their business in a high-quality environment while supporting a governmental objective to preserve important historic monuments for posterity.
2. CONVENIENT LOCATION
