The Ames Boston Hotel has revealed its 1,700 square feet of all-new meeting and event space.

Located on the second floor, the two new spaces include Ames and Oliver & Oakes; they fit groups up to 125 people and feature a design inspired by American manufacturing, uniformity and ingenuity. They were designed by New York City-based architecture and design firm Glen and Co. Architecture.

On a seperate note, the hotel has announced that Chef Mary Dumont will offer customized catering menus for the meeting spaces. She also is opening a restaurant, Cultivar, later this year.

Ames Boston Hotel’s is also undergoing multi-million dollar renovation, which is slated for completion in spring 2017.

“The Ames Building is one of Boston’s most treasured structures, and I’m very pleased to introduce Ames and Oliver & Oakes as the city’s newest meeting and event space,” says Trish Berry, general manager. “We are now uniquely positioned to host intimate gatherings and large corporate affairs in a fully modernized, yet historic space, which offers incredible views of downtown Boston and the Old State House, paired with a truly chef-driven culinary experience.”

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.
