DoubleTree by Hilton Chicago upgraded its entire building, updating guest rooms, hallways and event spaces in a multi-million dollar renovation.

“We are excited to have this opportunity to unveil our new look to our guests and our community,” says Charles R. Caskey, Jr., general manager of DoubleTree by Hilton Chicago. “Throughout the planning stages, we eagerly collected the ideas and advice from our most important decision makers, our guests. Many of the designs for our refresh were derived directly from the feedback we received from our guests and we are proud to say we have received rave reviews from those who have been privy to an advanced showing of our new product.”

With the help of the DLR group, the hotel updated the lighting, window treatments, artwork, furniture, and the amenities of their 160 rooms, five meeting rooms and hallway space to better fit the needs of their guests.

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
