The Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center created a new package for canine companions. Winter Wonders for Fido package, offered for guests with dogs, will offer visiting dogs house-made dog biscuits, designer treats and various canine amenities including Peaceful Lounger Orthodic Foam Dog Beds or SnooZZy Natural Cozy Crates, KONG Holiday Wubba pet toys, meaty protein snacks and plush Santa hat dog antlers.
 
In addition, the resort’s scenic 150 acres have miles of trails ideal for walks with dogs.
 
The rooms of the hotel, located 30 minutes from Chicago O’Hare International airport, are large and have plenty of space for a canine friend to relax.
 
“We’re proud to give dog owners a unique setting for a winter getaway,” said Nathan Karsten, director of sales & marketing at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center. “The hotel’s beautiful grounds are unmatched in the Midwest, offering pet-friendly accommodations that are truly second to none.”
 
Reservations for the package must be made a minimum of 48 hours in advance. Dogs that weigh 50 pounds or less are welcome to enjoy the package. There is also a nonrefundable pet service fee. ​

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
