DoubleTree by Hilton Chicago upgraded its entire building, updating guest rooms, hallways and event spaces in a multi-million dollar renovation.

“We are excited to have this opportunity to unveil our new look to our guests and our community,” says Charles R. Caskey, Jr., general manager of DoubleTree by Hilton Chicago. “Throughout the planning stages, we eagerly collected the ideas and advice from our most important decision makers, our guests. Many of the designs for our refresh were derived directly from the feedback we received from our guests and we are proud to say we have received rave reviews from those who have been privy to an advanced showing of our new product.”

With the help of the DLR group, the hotel updated the lighting, window treatments, artwork, furniture, and the amenities of their 160 rooms, five meeting rooms and hallway space to better fit the needs of their guests.

For the first time, all five boroughs of New York City are lighting up rainbow in celebration of WorldPride's first time being hosted in the United States. Additionally, NYC & Company and LGBT MPA are partnering to offer a MICE familiarization trip for LGBTQ+ meeting and event planners.

A major concern of meeting planners is food waste, with 62 percent of respondents noting that they will consider how a venue manages food waste before booking.
