This November, Tapestry Collection by Hilton opened its first property in Illinois—The Rose Hotel Chicago O’Hare. The new hotel, designed by The Gettys Group, has eight modern meetings and event spaces, totaling 6,000 square feet of functional, flexible space. 

The Tapestry Collection by Hilton is known for its upscale, unique hotels, and The Rose Hotel—a 165-room hotel featuring fine-art inspired elements coupled with contemporary design—is no exception. “The Rose Hotel is a fantastic addition to Tapestry Collection and Rosemont’s newly developed Pearl District mixed-use complex, featuring eye-catching elements and a stunning design that genuinely embodies the local spirit,” said Jenna Hackett, global head, Tapestry Collection by Hilton. The lobby encompasses a 44-by-11-foot  zebra wall as well as two abstract wallcoverings featuring the Chicago skyline.

The Rose Hotel is located in Rosemont, just one mile from Chicago O’Hare International Airport, and offers shuttles to the airport as well shuttles to public transport. On-the-go business travelers, meeting and event attendees and guests traveling for leisure can also enjoy on-site amenities including a large fitness center as well as locally-inspired dining and drink options. 

The Rose is offering special group rates in December 2018 and January 2019, as well as a custom shopping package, available until December 31, 2018. 

A team of hospitality students from Kansas State University in Kansas won PCMA’s inaugural Business Events Industry Student Challenge for proposing how to protect personal data of people attending business events.

Members of the winning team included Brooks Hetle, Bailey Brown, Andie Contreras, Tia Gamble and Cameryn Rasmussen. The students were advised by Kristin Malek, an assistant professor of hospitality management. The team competed against nearly two dozen collegiate teams from across the United States.

 

The Graduate Hotel Minneapolis’ partnership with Topgolf took off this October with the opening of its Swing Suite, the third Topgolf partnership with the Graduate Hotels brand since implementing the Swing Suite in the Graduate Lincoln and the Graduate Iowa City.

 

Event attendees at the George R. Brown Convention Center (GRB) will now be able to enjoy coffee from the first robotic, connected coffee service in Houston—the Coffee Haus, located across from the Marriott Marquis Houston’s skywalk. Houston First, which owns and operates the GRB, and its hospitality team powered by Levy, Houston Inspired Catering, have partnered with Austin-based Briggo to implement this service.
