The Stella Hotel, located in Bryan-College Station, Texas, is slated to open in March 2017. The 180,000-square-foot property will offer retail, restaurant and outdoor options, along with a 5-acre lake and 2 miles of hiking and biking trails.

Designed by FAB studio and Design DMU, the new luxury hotel will combine a modern design with the traditional aesthetic of the Texas countryside. The 176-room hotel will also have modern, luxurious amenities, with views of the Texas landscape, to create a calm and relaxing experience for their guests.

“The beauty of The Stella’s design is in its simplicity,” says Peggy Trott, The Stella’s general manager. “While chic and welcoming, you can still put your feet up.”

The Stella will also offer great food and drink options. Campfire is the restaurant at the hotel, and will offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner. To go along with Campfire is Hershel’s, a bar that will offer craft cocktails, whiskey, wines, and craft beers. The Stella will also offer a poolside bar with cabanas and lounge chairs for guests looking to catch some sun. Furthermore, just a short walk away is a café that offers coffee, draft beers, and wine.

To top it all off, The Stella features 10,000 square feet of indoor meeting space and 12,000 square feet of outdoor space. For more information, visit thestellahotel.com.

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.
