For meeting planners who want to enjoy equal parts work and play, Maragaritaville Beach Resort has a new deal. For a limited time, planners booking groups now through Dec. 31 will receive things like upgraded rooms, discounts for St. Somewhere Spa and a complimentary morning or afternoon break.

“Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort is the ideal destination for groups of all sizes that want to work hard, while enjoying the beautiful views from paradise,” says Cate Farmer, the resort’s general manager. “Our entire team is appreciative of the continued support we’ve seen from meeting and event planners.”

The offers differ depending on the size of the group. Planners booking a group of 50–99 rooms will receive a choice of one complimentary morning or afternoon break, 15 percent off St. Somewhere Spa treatments when booking a group package and more. Those booking a group of 100 rooms or more receive the same benefits and a complimentary one-hour welcome reception complete with an open bar.

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
