Ocean Place Resort and Spa Welcomes a New Executive Chef!

Guillermo Veloso has joined the team at Ocean Place Resort and Spa as their new executive chef. Veloso is no stranger to the region, being a New York City and northern Jersey native. 

Veloso has an extensive culinary career extending more than 35 years, but he has also spent time as an archaeologist and naturalist. He was the executive chef at Miami’s Yuca Restaurant and has also served as executive chef at Philadelphia’s Cuba Libre and the Please Touch Museum. 

His culinary creations have won him plenty of acclaim, with reviews and appearances on Great Chefs of the South, Rising Star Chefs of America, Food Network, Chef on a Shoestring, and others. 

Ocean Place Resort and Spa was selected by the readers of New Jersey Meetings + Events as Best Hotel over 200 Rooms in our first Best of New Jersey awards last year. We also spotlighted the resort’s brand-new spa in our Spring 2017 issue.

The luxurious and enriching experiences of JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America have been enhanced with the announcement of their new ‘Nordstrom Exclusive Shopping Package’. The new amenity invites guests to stay at the beautiful JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America and enjoy a $100 gift card for Nordstrom shopping per night. Nordstrom, located in the west wing of Mall of America, is just steps from the JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America.
