As a pet-friendly hotel, Hilton Chicago Northbrook wanted to give back to the community’s furry friends in honor of October as “National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month”. On Saturday, Oct. 26, the property partnered with Heartland Animal Shelter to host a “Yappie Hour” gathering hotel guests, community members and of course–the pups!

Open to the public, this dog-lover’s dream took place in the Garden Terrace, one of the hotel’s meeting and event spaces. While adorable rescue dogs enjoyed the property’s own take on “Puppuccinos”, a great turn-out of attendees stopped by to visit.

To really get tails wagging, the property’s popular restaurant, Allgauer’s on the Riverfront, donated 10 percent of guests’ bills to the Heartland Animal Shelter. Additionally, “Yappie Hour” guests were enrolled in a raffle to win a complimentary, one-night stay for two at Hilton Chicago Northbrook.

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.
