Alliance Hospitality Announces $2.5 Million Restyling and Conversion of Delta by Marriott Chicago North Shore to Renaissance

USA, Chicago, Illinois. March 03, 2020

Alliance Hospitality announced today its conversion of the Delta by Marriott Chicago North Shore Suites into a Renaissance Hotel. The Renaissance Chicago Glenview Suites will officially open on March 4, 2020. The property underwent a $10 million renovation in 2017, as it was converted from Wyndham to Delta, upon its acquisition by Glenview Investors-Hotel LLC.

The property features over 14,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, an indoor pool and 1,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art fitness center. Food & Beverage options include an on-site Starbucks and Bourbon Kitchen & Tap Restaurant. The restaurant, which was previously open for breakfast and dinner, will now be open for lunch as well.

The restyling plans include a revamped restaurant menu centering on healthier options, a new Renaissance Club Lounge and hosting of local talent in music, food, drinks and the arts as part of RLife LIVE events.

As a proud member of the community, Alliance Hospitality has also forged a partnership with the Glenview Hanger One Foundation and its Naval Air Station Glenview Museum to showcase historic photographs as part of the restyling. The Renaissance will also have a Navigator on staff to help guests discover Glenview and surrounding Chicagoland.

"We're excited to continue the evolution of this property," said Rolf Tweeten, Chairman of the Board for Alliance Hospitality. "This new brand offers an opportunity to better cater to the expectations of our guests who are familiar with the high service standards and lifestyle components of a Renaissance. We believe this transition will be enthusiastically welcomed by our guests, our staff and the local business community."

The property has excellent visibility from Interstate 294 and is close to mega-retailer Abt Electronics, Allstate World Headquarters, CVS Caremark, Astellas Pharma US and Chicago O'Hare International Airport. Nearby attractions include The Grove National Historic Landmark, The Glen Town Center, Kohl Children's Museum and Glenview Ice Center, which is slated to re-open in September 2020.

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
