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.

The Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) led a coalition of business groups and their communities to drive support to the industry, for SB 8, the federal pandemic relief bill that included $180 million for local hospitality and tourism businesses. 

 

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.
