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.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to revitalize our beloved property,” says Pete Demay, general manager of the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel “As a historic landmark, we work diligently each and every day to ensure guests enjoy the full experience of the hotel’s legacy. This restoration has enhanced the design of the hotel’s meeting and event space, while maintaining the beautiful qualities of its legendary, original architecture.”

Executed by Whitespace Interiors, phase one of the restoration project creates an atmosphere that is ideal for meetings and events of all sizes. Subdued hues celebrate the property’s unique character by highlighting the space’s bold patterns and intricate crystal-dipped chandeliers.

Phase two of the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel is set to be completed in early 2020.

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.
