Inns of Aurora Announces Opening of Conference Center | Business


The Inns of Aurora announced on Tuesday the opening of the Taylor House Conference Center, a new meeting and event space that represents the “cornerstone restoration” of the luxury resort.

Located in the center of the village, the center offers approximately 3,500 square feet of two-story meeting space and “state-of-the-art facilities,” the Inns of Aurora said in a press release. They include seven 65-inch TV screens, magnetic walls for workshops and presentations, overhead walls to create separate meeting spaces, wireless microphones, and an automatic lighting and projection system.

The first floor has 2000 square feet for a capacity of 50 guests, including three large living rooms. There is also a dining room that can seat up to 30 people, an outdoor patio and fireplace that can seat up to 50 people and a dedicated parking lot with a charging station for electric vehicles. The second floor features 1,500 square feet of modern meeting space, a main table that seats up to 36 guests, two meeting spaces for eight guests each, and over a dozen windows with views of the historic village and the Cayuga Lake. The center has a total of nine fireplaces between the two floors.

“We have been able to develop extraordinary meetings and events for guests throughout the Inns of Aurora property,” said Director of Sales Sara Brown. “In this new era – where companies prioritize offsite retreats as their employees continue to work remotely and social groups seek more intimate experiences – Taylor House allows us to expand our capabilities even further. “

The Greek Revival building from 1838 also features original architectural details such as Ionic columns, moldings, and intricate plasterwork. Several works of art come from the collection of the inn’s founder, Pleasant Rowland. The center is the last of more than a dozen buildings in the village to be restored by Rowland. The inns also include five boutique inns, two restaurants, a spa and more.

“We deeply admire Aurora’s incredible entrepreneurial spirit, from the early settlers who created a bustling hub along the Erie Canal, to successful entrepreneurs, diligent academics and progressive thinkers – including Pleasant Rowland – who made Aurora the gem it is today, ”said Sue Edinger, Chief Operating Officer.
