The Hyatt Place Washington D.C./U.S. Capitol is continuing their annual tradition of serving as a Toys for Tots drop-off site. This year, they are offering to go toy shopping for their guests and locals who wish to give, but don’t have the time to shop.

Guests can also give funds to the cause by having a donation added to their account upon check-in. The hotel will accept toys between now and Dec. 7.

“We understand that our guests are busy but still want to give to help kids in our community so we are going toy shopping for them,” says Ryan Cimei, hotel general manager. “Our guests are so kind and giving. Last year we collected over three large bins of toys, as many as a hotel triple our size would traditional collect.”

The new concept restaurant designed by Howe & Brown Hospitality has maritime inspired food and craft cocktails that will prove to be a delight for travelers and locals. Using locally-sourced ingredients, the cuisine emphasizes technique and texture to highlight the exuberance of in-season seafood. 

 

Known as “The World’s Most Famous Building,” the Empire State Building, which welcomes more than 4 million visitors per year, has been going through some changes. One of those changes is the preparation of NYC: Above and Beyond, an interactive exhibit dedicated to global tourists in New York City. Set to be located on the 80th floor of the famous building, the exhibit will offer personalized travel recommendations to visitors.

 

Despite being open for only 15 months, Somni is awarded two Michelin stars. Led by Chef Aitor Zabala with Chef José Andrés, the SLS Beverly Hills restaurant celebrates the honor as well as the Michelin Guide’s return to Los Angeles after a decade.
