The Courtyard Minneapolis just opened its 5,200-square-foot East Town Ballroom. The venue can host receptions, weddings and other events in downtown Minneapolis. Featuring custom catering, a 10,000-square-foot pre-function space and a central, downtown location East Town aims to be one of Minneapolis’ top venues.

The hotel’s executive chef produces unexpected and custom day-of catering options for events. The Courtyard Minneapolis has won a Couple’s Choice award two years in a row.

Christina Formico, head of the hotel’s social catering department, maintains strong relationships with vendors. She has planned more than 80 weddings and has years of experience in event planning. She remains available onsite for all functions and is able to offer assistance in regards to recommendations for florists, photographers, music or any other needs.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
