We’ve tallied the votes … now it’s time to announce the 2015 Best of Illinois.
Benchmark Hospitality International, a leading U.S.-based hospitality management company, recently announced the addition of Hotel Arista, one of Chicagoland's leading high-end hotels, to its Personal Luxury Resorts & Hotels collection.
"I am truly honored to welcome Hotel Arista to the Benchmark family and our Personal Luxury Resorts & Hotels brand," said Alex Cabañas, Benchmark’s president and CEO. "The owners, the Calamos family, have created a truly special, finely tailored destination."
Hotel Arista was named as a new Four-Star Hotel on Forbes official 2014 Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating list. Of all eight Illinois hotels that received a rating from the Forbes Travel Guide, Hotel Arista is the only recipient not located in the city of Chicago.
"Our Star Ratings recognize the finest hotels, restaurants and spas in the world," said Michael Cascone, president of Forbes Travel Guide. "These ratings serve as guideposts for consumers seeking exceptional travel experiences, and our primary mission is to serve the consumer."
