    Chicago is the newest location in the Ace Hotel’s expanding portfolio.

Ace Hotel is expanding its portfolio of popular boutique properties, announcing the opening of Ace Hotel Chicago on Sept. 1. It will be the brand’s ninth hotel, joining sister properties in New York, Los Angeles and New Orleans. The Ace Hotel has long had a goal to support artists and musicians in its local communities through various partnerships and programming. The Chicago property has already made waves in its new home, teaming up with youth organizations like Little Black Pearl, Young Chicago Authors and 826CHI. Ace Hotel Chicago has donated 10 percent of revenue from its preview bookings to these local charities and has plans to continue to implement various events and initiatives throughout the year.

Located in the West Loop, the 159-room hotel has plenty of features for business and leisure guests to enjoy, such as a ground-floor restaurant, rooftop bar and lounge with roasts from Portland-based Stumptown Coffee. There are also plenty of meeting and event spaces to choose from, including two ground floor spaces, two meeting rooms on the 6th floor and two terraces on the 7th floor.

When it comes to planning events, planners must be choosy when determining the venue. Setting priorities like location, size, and technological capabilities sets them up for a successful event, but often forces them to weed out dozens of venues due to their limitations. Although sometimes, a venue comes along that provides the perfect location, high-speed technology, and much more without having to compromise.

 

Salado’s iconic Stagecoach Inn has opened a new event venue: Longhorn Ballroom.

 

The home of Rockford’s new entrepreneurial event space may date back to the 1920s, but Rockford City Market is primed to showcase future creatives and makers of all kinds.
