Room service takes on a whole new meaning at three area hotels with unique new options that were clearly made for the “do not disturb” sign. Hard Rock Hotel Chicago gives you the rock star treatment with the “Sound of Your Stay” program that allows you to choose from 20 different guitars, including iconic Stratocasters and Telecasters, which will be delivered to your room with headphones and a floor amp. Play for free throughout your stay; for interested groups, you can also arrange lessons for a unique team-building session. 

Meanwhile at Thompson Chicago, you can enjoy fine dining from the on-site Nico Osteria right in your guest room— perfect for all those times the Italian hot spot is booked solid. Order from the same dining room menu and staff will hand deliver your entrees complete with a portable table and tablecloth to add ambiance. Your meal can also be coursed out with multiple deliveries if preferred.

In Wisconsin, Aparium Hotel Group (which oversees north of the border properties The Iron Horse Hotel and Charmant Hotel) has partnered with Milwaukee’s Bittercube Bitters Company for an exclusive in-room cocktail program. Guests can mix their own craft cocktails with base elixirs like the whiskey sour and seasonal gimlet alongside paired spirit suggestions, all of which are stationed in each individual room. That means no last call.

The time is right; the stage is set. Groups are ready to meet face to face again, and the four-star luxury hotel MGM Grand Detroit is ready to welcome you back.

According to MPI’s report “Spring 2021 Meetings Outlook,” three-quarters of meeting professionals predict a face-to-face event this calendar year. And that definitely rings true for Lisa Williams, executive director of sales for the hotel.

 

Destination Niagara USA designed its series of 360-degree videos with the purpose of allowing meeting planners to virtually explore meeting and event venues in Niagara Falls, NY. The introductory video, with its footage of scenic spots that include Niagara Falls State Park, Luna Island, Stedman’s Bluff and Cave of the Winds, could do double duty as a meditative app on a stressful day.

 

After a year that kept most explorers close to home, the newly transformed Rand Tower Hotel Minneapolis is ready to whisk guests away on a new adventure. With the completion of a $110 million-dollar transformation, the Jazz Age architectural icon that once housed office space has been reborn as a luxe 270-room boutique hotel.
