Starting June 13, Chicago's newest contemporary hotel, Cambria Chicago Loop – Theatre District now offers the Director's Circle Package. Managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, the Cambria Chicago has 199 stylish gues trooms; a game room with shuffleboard, foosball and TVs; a fitness center; 2,600 square feet of function space with AV capabilities, customizable menus and valet parking; and two luxurious suites, where one has an 18-foot high original cathedral window. The Cambria Chicago Loop is within walking distance to many attractions in the area, including Skydeck Chicago, the Chicago Riverwalk, the John Hancock Center, as well as the Magnificent Mile, Millennium Park, Block 37, and State Street.

While the Cambria Chicago Loop – Theatre District Hotel has many amenities, the Director's Circle Package gives groups private access to an entire floor of the hotel, in addition to five sleeping rooms and the Green Room, a luxury event space with shuffleboard, pool, and foosball, and TVs, and is accessible to groups purchasing the Director's Circle Package from 4.pm until 10 a.m. the next day. When groups arrive, two pitchers of margaritas, mojitos or sangria, as well as two bottles of champagne, and a charcuterie tray with chips, guacamole and a gallon tin of Garrett's Popcorn Perfect Mix.

“We take pride in the opportunity we have to preserve the Oriental Theatre’s cultural significance while offering guests a top-of-the-line experience unavailable anywhere else,” says Ross Guthrie, general manager. “The Director’s Circle Package is a great way to give guests an intimate, theatrical experience in the heart of Chicago’s theatre center.”

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
