I had an opportunity to visit The Inn at SentryWorld located in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. The Inn is just over a two hour drive from Milwaukee. The Inn has 64 spaciously appointed hotel rooms, nineteen of which occupy the executive third floor. The hotel opened in March 2022 and is located next to the world-class SentryWorld golf course, which will host the U.S. Senior Open June 27-July 2, 2023.
What impressed me most is the hotel's spacious, light and airy rooms, the outstanding customer service provided by each hotel staff person, they took the time to know everything about their guests. You are welcomed with a complimentary beverage upon check in and personally escorted to your room by their bellman who is familiar with everything inside and outside the hotel. The hotel also offers complimentary shuttle service in their Mercedes Benz van within a five mile radius of the hotel.
The hotel has in room dining along with an outlet for breakfast and lunch in the main floor next to the 'living room'. There is a very large three season sunroom and ample fire pit on the patio, including s'mores you can purchase to make your experience complete!
P.J's is a restaurant named after one of the founders of Sentry Insurance and is located in a building next to the hotel. It also includes six indoor tennis courts, event space and the Pro Golf Shop. The event space is bright, airy and welcoming.
The Hotel is definitely on my list of places to bring groups or meetings and is available for a corporate buy out of the third floor, if you are looking for somewhere special to bring a corporate retreat. Let Dm-Connection & Events help you with your next event in this fantastic, centrally located and upscale venue.

Kathryn Gleesing, MBA, CMP, DMCP was recently awarded a Certificate in Pandemic On-Site Protocol through Event Leadership Institute. Gleesing is owner of Dm-Connection and Events and felt it was extremely important to have this certification as events start to come back. "Safety of my clients is the top priority and after having taken this certification, it opened my eyes that a lot of work needs to be done in preparation for the event especially after the pandemic. Communication is critical to the attendees, vendors and staff in order to keep everyone safe. The design of the event space with good air flow is crucial and having safety measures on site like temperature checks and mask wearing is extremely important. We can have safe, successful events, it will take more time and effort to do this, but it will be well worth it in the long run".
The U.S. Travel Association just released new statistics showing how decimanted the Leisure & Hospitality Industry has been and continues to be during the pandemic.
Some industries are starting to show signs of recovery, however, the pandemic continues to take a toll on travel, hotels, meeting and events, catering, venues, transportation, the list goes on. This industry needs additional help in order for it to come back stronger than ever. Write your Congressperson and tell them how vital this industry is to jobs, small businesses and travel in general. We continue to need support.
