Hilton Chicago Northbrook has completed phase one of a multimillion-dollar renovation. 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space and 249 guest rooms have been revamped by the Lynn Rosenberg Design Team to incorporate a modern aesthetic into the North Shore property. Phase two, beginning in early 2020, will refresh the property’s restaurants, Allgauer’s on the Riverfront and Frank’s Place.

“We are thrilled to introduce a refreshed Hilton Chicago Northbrook to both visitors and residents of the North Shore community,” says Holly Allgauer-Cir, general manager of Hilton Chicago Northbrook. “With this renovation, we have aimed to bring a new, modernized look to our property while still delivering the feel of comfort and convenience that our guests have come to know and love.”

New carpeting and wallpaper fill the restored meeting and event spaces, as well as electronic reader boards and door signs. Modern light fixtures expose warm, red tones that pop through the neutral palette. The Grand Ballroom provides an improved event experience with an upgraded sound and lighting system. The Hilton Chicago Northbrook can accommodate up to 1,300 guests and offers 18 smaller breakout spaces.

All 249 guest rooms offer new carpet, furniture, smart TVs and lighting. Complimentary Wi-Fi is included and multiple USB connections allow guests to charge up to ten devices at a time. Guests will feel welcomed with fresh design elements and incredible views of the Des Plaines River and Allison Woods.

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.
