    Hyatt's Happy Hyatt HQ

Opened in August 2017 inside the 54-story office tower at 150 N. Riverside Plaza, Hyatt Hotels’ new headquarters—known as Hyatt Hub—looks a bit like an urban hotel. And that was exactly the point for the new space, which welcomes hotel owners, consultants and suppliers daily. 

“The Hyatt Hub is warm and hospitable with an atmosphere of casual refinement and a mix of spaces for working meetings, dining and socializing,” says Kristen Conry, vice president of product and brand development for Hyatt. “[Its design is] much like the designs of our hotels and with the same purpose: to care for people so they can be their best.”

The Hyatt Hub also cares for the environment, earning LEED Platinum certification and joining Google in becoming among the first companies in Chicago to pursue WELL certification for the space, which sets requirements for a wide range of items, from air quality to sugar content in food and beverage offerings.

Who says you can’t have a meeting without some pampering mixed in? Several hot springs resorts in the U.S. Mountain West can accommodate smaller meetings complete with lodging, function space, din- ing and soaking. Some even have on-site spas and other standout features like an ice museum or microbrewery to include on an itinerary.

 

Erase any vision you might have of a dude ranch, especially the “City Slicker” version. For the purposes of this story, let’s use the name ranch resort and picture a big dose of vision and thousands of acres for both herds and people to roam. It’s a fairly different option, but one with similar friendliness and the Western spirit of a dude ranch.

 

To say Wisconsin is having a moment would be an understatement. A statewide renaissance resulting in plenty of new developments, impressive renovations and entrepreneurial ventures has been years in the making and shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.
