Spectacular views at every turn, a charming historic district, abundant lodging and world-class wineries make Hermann the perfect venue for small- to medium-size groups.
Although there is no “convention hotel” in Hermann, we suggest that the city itself is a convention site—in a very unique setting. The area around the historic district where most of the lodging places, meeting facilities, shops, restaurants, and several wineries are located is smaller than many large convention centers. Attendees can easily walk to most activities or be just a short drive away.
Hermann’s more than 60 unique lodging establishments make it particularly attractive for groups. Options range from traditional motels, to guest houses, B&Bs, country cottages, and quaint inns. Lodging can be found in beautifully restored historic buildings, old farm houses, and luxurious new facilities with first-class amenities. Each property is distinctive, with hosts who are committed to the highest levels of service and courtesy.
We offer competitive group rates, payment by one check, and any level of amenities your travelers desire. If you wish, participants can be matched to specific B&B’s, where they can have breakfast together, hold meetings, and socialize.
