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. 

SCS Global Services (SCS), a third-party environmental and sustainability certification, auditing, testing, and standards development, has launched its Zero Waste Standard, “Zero Waste for Events.”

 

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.
