If you’re an employer looking to plan a corporate retreat for your team, staff, or clients, that allows for social distancing, consider Raleigh, NC as your destination of choice. Raleigh offers the best of both worlds with serene outdoor activities, as well as fun city outings and experiences. We’ve done most of the heavy lifting and created lists of where to stay, where to eat, and what team building activities to do, making planning your corporate retreat a breeze.
Where To Stay
The StateView Hotel
Stay at The StateView Hotel for all your corporate and team building retreat needs. Not only does our property have a gorgeous view of Lake Raleigh, but we also have all the meeting and accommodation amenities you could want!
Our room block makes it easy for you to make accommodation arrangements for your clients or staff. Your guest can receive customized reservations links with their room itinerary, and you can receive updates and alerts as needed. In light of COVID-19, the state of North Carolina only allows for 25 people max outdoor gatherings and 10 people max indoor gatherings. We also have multiple meeting spaces for the meeting, teaching, or planning that can not only accommodate your retreat needs but also allow for a safe social distancing set-up.
Whatever your meeting needs are, we are happy to accommodate you, whether that be with technical support or catering options for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
