A historic landmark property has been completely overhauled and transformed into a new charming Midwest meeting place. 

The Howard, located in the lakefront town of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, encompasses an event space, concert hall, day-time café and a vintage 10-lane basement bowling alley, complete with modern touches including automatic lanes, plush couches and a private viewing room. The 33,000-square-foot space has the potential to host conventions conventions, business meetings, weddings and more. The Howard's 7,000-square-foot ballroom can accommodate up to 450 guests and its 1,800-square-foot Great Hall can hold up to 185.   

Built in 1927, the Eagles Club was orginally founded as the home to a men's-only fraternal organization, which served as venue for community events and statewide conventions. The concert hall was also once used for lavish balls and boxing matches. 

The Howard has been carefully restored by sisters and proprietors, Carey Sharpe and Jenna Golem, and through the restoration process many original elements of the building's original craftsmanship have been preserved while modern amenities like The Cafe at The Howard (serving healthy, sustainable and locally sourced food options) and The Lanes incorporate playful new event offerings. The Howard will also host a variety of live entertainment featuring Grammy award-winning artists and even murder mystery dinner theatre events. 

InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel reveals phase one of a multimillion-dollar project to restore its meeting and events spaces. Phase one revitalized several of the property’s ballrooms and pre-function space. As a property on the National Register of Historic Places, the restoration represents a fine-tuned balance of old and new with modern efficiencies complemented by the hotel’s Gatsby-Era charm.

 

Chicago Marriott Schaumburg is undergoing a multimillion-dollar renovation to elevate the overall guest experience. All guest rooms, public areas, new restaurant and bar, lobby, function areas, fitness room, indoor and outdoor pools as well as the exterior of the building and the parking lot will be renovated.

 

Already a go-to for striking views of the Chicago River and Magnificent Mile, The Gwen, a Luxury Collection Hotel, is offering guests a whole new way to soak in the city this summer with a luxe urban glamping experience.

Now in full-swing, glamping season at The Gwen gives guests a chance to sleep under the stars on its 16th floor Gwen Lux Suite terrace from June through September.
