Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J., added one more factor to its offerings—their conference center has officially opened its doors.

Boasting the latest in audio-visual technology, attendees will be able to wirelessly connect laptops and other devices simultaneously, while sharing screens with each other and even with colleagues in remote locations.

Other features include higher resolution capabilities, high-capacity Wi-Fi, electrical and Telecom connectivity and architectural LED lighting on dimmers with programmable pre-sets. 

There are twelve breakout rooms and an Atlantic Ballroom. Four sets of walls divide the main conference hall into five spaces and provide with an adaptable floor plan made for a variety of uses. With the new conference center, Resorts now has 24 meeting and function rooms with more than 64,000 square feet of usable space.

“Resorts Casino Hotel is dedicated to ensuring that our leisure and business travelers are always offered the best that Atlantic City has to offer,” says Morris Bailey, owner, Resorts. “We are committed to continuing to reinvest in the property and to offer the finest in meeting space, lodging, gaming, dining and entertainment.”

 

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.
