Chicago Marriott Schaumburg is undergoing a multimillion-dollar renovation to elevate the overall guest experience. All guest rooms, public areas, new restaurant and bar, lobby, function areas, fitness room, indoor and outdoor pools as well as the exterior of the building and the parking lot will be renovated.

"Our hotel offers the newest and innovative event spaces and overnight accommodations in Schaumburg with high level quality of service to clients and event planners," says Lukasz Sobczak, director of sales for the hotel. "The hotel is one of the largest in the area, however, we provide customized, personalized and intimate experiences for groups ranging from 10 to 1,000."

Sobczak says the hotel has retained a large amount of repeat clients over the years due to continuously meeting and exceeding planners' expectations.

Our pre-function area features a wall of windows and skylights providing highly desired and refreshing natural light."

Chicago Marriott Schaumburg also boasts a unique and seasonal venue situated by a nearby lake and surrounded by lush greenery, giving it a resort feel, Sobczak adds.

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

 

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.
