Hello readers,

The Rolling Stones are in town for the next three months with vast amounts of memorabilia and instruments on display in the acclaimed “Exhibitionism” at Navy Pier—and there’s one hotel they won’t be too quick to trash.

Loews Chicago Hotel has been named the official hotel partner of “Exhibitionism” with special rates, unique craft cocktails and spa packages all paying homage to the world-famous rock ‘n’ rollers. The downtown hotel is conveniently just a short walk away from the exhibit, which is on display now through July 30.

It features 18,000 square feet of space filled to the brim with 500 rare pieces, including Keith Richard’s diary, countless guitars and Mick Jagger’s on-stage costumes as well as replicas of the London-area apartment flat where they lived before they found notoriety.

Groups of 10 or more will receive 15% off regular admission rates; as well, VIP packages offer after-hour opportunities to view the exhibit along with wine and apps plus exclusive lithographs and $50 merchandise vouchers. There’s also the option to plan evening functions within the nine various rooms with private viewings. Head to their website for ticket details.

Back at Loews Chicago Hotel, you can treat your guests to various specialty cocktails at the lobby’s ETA Restaurant + Bar. Options include the Exhibitionism: Dear Doctor made with Johnny Walker, lemon juice, honey and ginger beer; the Exhibitionism: Hey Negrita with Langley’s, campari and sweet vermouth; and Exhibitionism: Flight 505 with bourbon, aperol, amaro and lemon juice.

Spa at Loews Chicago also offers themed services including the Paint It Black no-chip mani-pedi, Time Is On My Side resurfacing facial and the Start Me Up foot refresher. Make appointments by calling (312.840.6615.

With meetings returning to normal as the COVID-19 pandemic levels out, outdoor mountain pursuits are finding more time on meeting agendas. Taking events outdoors not only boosts attendees’ comfort level as they ease back into in-person meetings, time spent in nature is proven to improve brain health and stimulate creative thinking as well.

We’ll be looking at this topic in-depth in the Spring/Summer 2022 issue of Mountain Meetings. Consider this as an introduction to some of the possibilities.  

 

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.
