A new 223-room lifestyle hotel, Canopy by Hilton in Chicago, will open in fall 2018 on S. LaSalle Street and W. Adams Street, in the Chicago Loop area.

"We are delighted to bring the Canopy by Hilton brand to the thriving Loop neighborhood, in the heart of the Financial District,” says Michael W. Reschke, chairman and CEO, The Prime Group. “With convenient proximity to Chicago’s central business district, dining, shopping, the theater district and Canopy’s dedication to comfort and service, our Canopy by Hilton hotel will be a natural choice for both business and leisure travelers looking for a true Chicago experience.”

The design of the hotel was inspired by natural, local materials; and is supposed to be an extension of the downtown Chicago area. The hotel will feature work from local artists and artisans, local food and drink, and will offer welcome gifts specific to the area.

Guest rooms will have about 480 square feet of space, wood floors, a large flat screen TV and large bathrooms with walk-in showers. Other amenities will include a complimentary breakfast, complimentary wine and beer tasting, fitness center, a lounge, 4,000 square feet of meeting space, a rooftop terrace and a bar for their guests.

“We’re looking forward to extending a warm welcome to the Loop neighborhood,” says Gary Steffen, global head, Canopy by Hilton. “The Windy City is an exceptional destination with rich history, outstanding culinary offerings and so much for visitors to explore; we look forward to Canopy giving energetic and adventurous travelers an authentic neighborhood experience.”

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.
