Each year Meetings Focus polls its users–made up of planners who hold events around the world–to determine the best hotels and resorts for meetings and events in North America.

The properties are judged on the following criteria: quality of meeting space; guest rooms; services and amenities; food and beverage; tech and bandwidth support; recreational facilities/activities; helpfulness of staff; and overall value and experience.

Properties are divided into the same regional categories as our magazine (West, East, South and MidAmerica), and you can choose your favorites from each section.

Voting is now closed for 2014, check back in September to see results!
