    Hyatt's Happy Hyatt HQ

Opened in August 2017 inside the 54-story office tower at 150 N. Riverside Plaza, Hyatt Hotels’ new headquarters—known as Hyatt Hub—looks a bit like an urban hotel. And that was exactly the point for the new space, which welcomes hotel owners, consultants and suppliers daily. 

“The Hyatt Hub is warm and hospitable with an atmosphere of casual refinement and a mix of spaces for working meetings, dining and socializing,” says Kristen Conry, vice president of product and brand development for Hyatt. “[Its design is] much like the designs of our hotels and with the same purpose: to care for people so they can be their best.”

The Hyatt Hub also cares for the environment, earning LEED Platinum certification and joining Google in becoming among the first companies in Chicago to pursue WELL certification for the space, which sets requirements for a wide range of items, from air quality to sugar content in food and beverage offerings.

Sheraton Dallas Hotel has introduced a new outdoor event space under its new event programming, Dare to Outdoors. The hotel’s catering team has partnered with Pacific Plaza Park, a 3.7-acre green space in Downtown Dallas. The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.

 

In 1927, Hilton Hotels’ founder Conrad Hilton said, "Abilene, Texas, will be well prepared to handle large conventions and please the most fastidious visitor." Nearly 95 years later, Abilene has fulfilled this vision and is excited to welcome back the Hilton family of hotels in the heart of downtown Abilene with a recently announced DoubleTree by Hilton.
