• Get in a Good Workout at One of These 3 Hotels

     
    FROM THE Fall 2016 ISSUE
     

Chicago hotels are inviting meeting attendees to bust a move with new fitness programs that really stretch the limits of breakout sessions.

JW Marriott Chicago recently launched the “Fit Meetings” program, exclusively tailored to meeting participants. It offers a choice of three breakout enhancements that focus on meditation, posture and boosting energy or three longer-format fitness classes led by the spa’s Nike-certified personal trainers. Groups of up to 200 are welcome. 

InterContinental Chicago is overcoming that afternoon slump with more mindful exercises. The new “Get Centered” program is through a partnership with CorePower Yoga and allows guests a complimentary week pass to a nearby studio as well as a mat to use throughout the stay.  

As part of its new Signature Event offerings, Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park begins the day with a Morning Bike Tour. Guests are able to rent a set of wheels and then bike along the lakefront at their own pace. Upon returning, bottled water, a chilled towel and a healthy menu of fresh juices and seed mixes will be waiting. 

Sheraton Dallas Hotel has introduced a new outdoor event space under its new event programming, Dare to Outdoors. The hotel’s catering team has partnered with Pacific Plaza Park, a 3.7-acre green space in Downtown Dallas. The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.

 

In 1927, Hilton Hotels’ founder Conrad Hilton said, "Abilene, Texas, will be well prepared to handle large conventions and please the most fastidious visitor." Nearly 95 years later, Abilene has fulfilled this vision and is excited to welcome back the Hilton family of hotels in the heart of downtown Abilene with a recently announced DoubleTree by Hilton.
