Rent your space at the Kimpton Journeyman Hotel and get so much more than a place to meet. 

The Kimpton Journeyman, located in Milwaukee’s Third Ward district, has 158 guest rooms, a rooftop bar and craftsman details for groups to enjoy. The crowning finish is the selection of team-building offerings the hotel helps coordinate. Since the Third Ward is within walking distance of so many outstanding attractions, the hotel has compiled activities building off local specialties like the Milwaukee Public Market. One popular team-building activity sends teams to the market with instructions to prepare a onecourse meal, giving participants 20 minutes to shop and 40 minutes to create a dish to share. 

“Other popular nonfood activities include building bird houses with a variety of obscure materials; scavenger hunts that take teams through the Historic Third Ward neighborhoods; and decorating piñatas followed by a Mexican dinner, complete with a mariachi band,” says Mary Kruse, director of sales and marketing at the hotel.  

Allentown has a new luxury venue.

 

 With rich histories and charming amenities, these inns offer a departure from busy downtown hotels.

 

Dawn Young first joined Choose Chicago in June 2005 as director of association sales, and in May this year, was promoted to vice president of hotel sales. It’s a perfect example of rising up the ranks for someone who’s so passionate about moving tourism forward. Though her experience in the industry runs deep, she’s got her work cut out for her to keep the numbers growing: Chicago set a tourism record in 2017 with more than 55 million visitors. A major reason for that? “Chicago just rocks accessibility,” says Young.
