Hotel Arista was named as a new Four-Star Hotel on Forbes official 2014 Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating list. Of all eight Illinois hotels that received a rating from the Forbes Travel Guide, Hotel Arista is the only recipient not located in the city of Chicago.

"Our Star Ratings recognize the finest hotels, restaurants and spas in the world," said Michael Cascone, president of Forbes Travel Guide. "These ratings serve as guideposts for consumers seeking exceptional travel experiences, and our primary mission is to serve the consumer."

Hotel Arista is the most recent addition to the luxury travel ratings list, which has served as the gold standard in the hospitality industry since 1958. The boutique hotel also received a number of honors in recent years, the most recent recognition being the first LEED certified hotel in Illinois. 

Located in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, ACME Hotel is bringing the personality. Bold art, outstanding technology and a locale that reflects the neighborhood’s vibrant nightlife are just a few of the attractions.

 

This summer, the Chicago riverfront welcomed its newest restaurant: Pizzeria Portofino

The sun-drenched casual restaurant is filled with breezy decor that will instantly transport you to the Italian Riviera. Inside, guests dine amidst white-washed wood, colorful shutters, and playful striped booths as they look out onto the beautiful water and Chicago’s historic architecture outside.  

 

InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile has announced the launch of its Dive-In Movie series, a classic, child-friendly summer film series inside the hotel's historic indoor pool. Beginning at sunset every Saturday night through Labor Day, guests can grab a bag of freshly popped popcorn and complimentary inflatables to enjoy a full-length feature film projected on the hotel's 80-foot jumbo screen.
