This Fall, New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood will welcome one of its tallest hotels. The 430-foot Renaissance New York Chelsea Hotel is built on the former site of the Antique Garage flea market, and while the hotel is still shiny and new, the space pays homage to the historic flea market and Chelsea’s Flower District.  

Inside the hotel boasts 7,238 square feet of meeting and event space across the Cardinal Ballroom, the 38th Floor Lounge and the Rooftop Terrace, all of which have more than 2,000 square feet of space. The ballroom and lounge each have a maximum capacity of 200 while the rooftop allows for 100 people reception style. Maximum capacities for banquets are smaller in size; however, each space is perfect for everything from conferences and corporate events to weddings and galas.  

“This project brings together the past and present of Chelsea,” says General Manager Chris Rynkar. With design details that pay tribute to the neighborhood in which it stands, the hotel feels like a secret garden nestled within the heart of NYC. Additionally, guests can experience views of landmarks like the Empire State Building and the One World Trade Center through the hotel’s expansive balcony windows and at the open-air rooftop pool.  

For guests, the hotel provides state-of-the-art amenities and is within walking distance of several tourist spots and subway lines. For event planners, the hotel provides thoughtful event planning and catering teams in addition to the hotel’s offering of Marriott Bonvoy points for event planners who use the hotel for their events.  

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.
