Need some help with tracking down a special venue for an off-site meeting, or a local experience for teambuilding, or even a room block at a trendy hotel? Luxpitality, a California-based hospitality company that works with hotels and destination management companies in the U.S. and Europe, can help.
From connecting clients to hotel partners, to providing transportation and full-scale experiences, the team prides themselves on its local relationships and partnerships.
“One of the guiding principles of Luxpitality is the partnership model. A true partnership,” explained Rigel Bitterman, vice president and co-conspirator at Luxpitality. “It’s hard to find that in this industry. We wanted to create a business model and company culture that has a clearly defined and truly symbiotic partnerships.”
Luxpitality has over 20 global offices and more than 50 hospitality experts stationed around the world that work directly with four- and five-star independent hotels and small brands on behalf of their clients to offer customized group options.
“We work very closely with our hotel partners,” said Patrick Burkhardt, president and chief idea person at Luxpitality. “Depending on how the hotel operates and needs of the client, we sometimes just pass the project off to the property’s team, and in other cases we stay very involved with both the client and the hotel from start to finish.”
While many of the hotel partners are more traditional hotels and resorts, such as the new Pendry in downtown San Diego, the iconic Hollywood Roosevelt in Los Angeles and ski-in/ski-out Stein Eriksen Lodge in Deer Valley, Utah, the company has expanded to the “adventure” category with AutoCamp. The lodging concept, with locations in Santa Barbara and Guerneville, Calif., blends traditional camping with custom-designed luxury Airstreams. AutoCamp offers a “glamping” experience to groups with fully equipped luxury tents and a Mid-Century Modern-inspired architectural lounge pavilions. Along with Holden Marketing, Luxpitality can facilitate corporate retreats and group experiences at both locations.
“AutoCamp is something we are very excited about because it is something that speaks to our character and personality: being outdoors and mixing luxury with ruggedness,” Burkhardt said. “It’s a great experience, especially for the new-age business we’re working with.”
