Chicago native, Karen McGuigan, general manager at Hyatt Centric The Look Chicago, has just reached a milestone in her career—30 years in the Chicago hotel industry.

McGuigan began her career in January 1987, working at the front desk at Hyatt Regency O'Hare. For 15 years, she worked at various Hyatt locations in the Chicago area in a number of different capacities, including director of security at Hyatt Regency Chicago. In 2014, she joined the pre-opening team for Hyatt Centric, which opened last April.

McGuigan played an integral role in the success of Hyatt Centric's first year and a half, all while battling cancer. The hotel has already held an array of events; and launched AIRE, a new rooftop space. For more information about the hotel, visit www.theloopchicago.centric.hyatt.com.

“One of the best parts of what I do is all the great relationships I have made along the way," says McGuigan. "I have worked previously with a large majority of my staff at Hyatt Centric. I am very excited to have been given this opportunity back within the Hyatt family and Interstate Hotels.”

Chicago’s Steak 48 has been awarded a place on OpenTable’s 2019 list of the 100 Best Restaurants in America for a Big Night Out. Scanning more than 12 million reviews from verified diners, the list considered more than 30,000 restaurants across the country. 

 

Lakhani Hospitality celebrated its 15th anniversary with a $10 million renovation of Holiday Inn & Suites Chicago North Shore. The family-owned company, which started in 2002 with the Holiday Inn Skokie, is now comprised of five Chicagoland hotel companies, totaling close to 1,000 guest rooms.

 

At the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel, Meet Chicago Northwest, professionals gathered to celebrate Chicago Northwest tourism at the 2019 Annual Partnership Meeting. The flourishing Chicago Northwest area wasn’t the only cause for celebration.
