The dual-branded Aloft and Element Hotel Development in Redmond, Wash., was declared open by Minneapolis-based CSM Corporation. The two hotels are located near the Microsoft Corporation's world headquarters as well as Google, Nintendo, Boeing and Expedia. The hotels share one building and multiple amenities.

The building that the two brands share offers 7,600 square feet of event space and seven meeting rooms. There is a saline pool and a large fitness center. The Aloft Seattle Redmond offers 150 guest rooms, while the Element Seattle Redmond has 131 guest rooms. The spaces were designed to be comfortable, stylish, sustainable and tech-forward.

Element Hotels are designed for travelers passionate about the planet and well-being. The Element brand is stylish and sustainable, focusing on natural light in their 18 worldwide locations. Aloft Hotels offers a tech-forward and vibrant experience that offers something fresh compared to the traditional hotel experience.

“CSM Corporation is proud to deliver hotels that are equally stylish and technically advanced for a tech-forward community like Redmond,” says Steve Schlundt, CSM’s president of lodging and residential. “Guests from around the world will enjoy all the space and amenities that will allow them to be comfortable and in control whether they’re working or relaxing."

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.
