Modern amenities meet historic richness in the Hilton Chicago’s newly renovated Conrad Hilton Suite. The largest hotel suite in the Midwest is often referred to as the "Midwest White House," as every United States President since Ronald Reagan has stayed there. The space features a Grand Salon complete with a fireplace, a library with a pool table and bar, a dining room with seating for up to 14 guests, three bedrooms with full bathrooms and a private kitchen.

After the $1.8 million makeover, the Conrad Hilton Suite now boasts a dynamic new layout and an updated décor including a new color palette, refinished floors, a marble fireplace and a grand piano. The second floor is home to the remodeled bedrooms, which now feature semi-private gathering spaces within each room, upgrades to the dressing rooms, new night-cap bars and freestanding bathtubs and glass showers.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Jumpstarting tourism in cities across the country will be more complicated than simply opening doors again – especially in cities with large populations like Chicago. However, working together proves more effective, and in Chicago, more than 250 businesses are banding together to join Choose Chicago’s new initiative, Tourism & Hospitality Forward. It bolsters a safe reopening that encourages tourism as well as meetings and events in
