As a pet-friendly hotel, Hilton Chicago Northbrook wanted to give back to the community’s furry friends in honor of October as “National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month”. On Saturday, Oct. 26, the property partnered with Heartland Animal Shelter to host a “Yappie Hour” gathering hotel guests, community members and of course–the pups!

Open to the public, this dog-lover’s dream took place in the Garden Terrace, one of the hotel’s meeting and event spaces. While adorable rescue dogs enjoyed the property’s own take on “Puppuccinos”, a great turn-out of attendees stopped by to visit.

To really get tails wagging, the property’s popular restaurant, Allgauer’s on the Riverfront, donated 10 percent of guests’ bills to the Heartland Animal Shelter. Additionally, “Yappie Hour” guests were enrolled in a raffle to win a complimentary, one-night stay for two at Hilton Chicago Northbrook.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

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.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
