When construction on the Southbridge Hotel & Conference Center began in 2000, the aim was to preserve and restore the architectural heritage of the American Optical Company, an eyeglass and optics manufacturer and innovator that called Southbridge, MA, home for 160 years. The result – which seamlessly blended historic touches like a brick façade, grand spiraling staircase and hand-carved marble fireplace with light-infusing floor-to-ceiling windows – was a one-of-a-kind combination of contemporary aesthetic and traditional New England charm.
Our 24,000 square feet of state-of-the-art event facilities and award-winning service, set us as the best conference center in Central New England. Our spacious, beautifully appointed rooms and resort-style amenities like the Focus Fitness Center, superb cuisine at Shades Lounge and Visions Restaurant and a tranquil courtyard with a fire pit, offer abundant opportunities for relaxing. And our convenient setting near Sturbridge, MA is less than an hour’s drive from Boston, Springfield, Hartford, CT, and Providence, RI.
