USA, Schaumburg, Illinois. July 30, 2019

Chicago Marriott Schaumburg, 50 N. Martingale Rd., Schaumburg, has officially begun a $22 million renovation, with an expected completion date of August 2019. The property is elegantly updated to revitalize the guest experience from check-in to checkout with reimagined meeting spaces and a transformed lobby with a revolutionary Great Room. Chicago Marriott Schaumburg also features an all-new MClub Lounge, fully remodeled indoor and outdoor pools, refreshed restaurant and bar with an elevated food and beverage menu, innovative and new guest rooms and state-of-the-art health club.

"It is exciting to be in the midst of such an extensive transformation for both our hotel and our community," said Andreo Girardi, general manager of Chicago Marriott Schaumburg. "We are elated to provide guests with a distinctly enhanced and welcoming destination in the heart of Schaumburg, whether they are locals or visiting from out of town. As the most newly renovated hotel in the area, it brings us great pride to invite everyone to enjoy a fresh take on modern amenities and style just outside of downtown Chicago."

Upon entry to the hotel's lobby guests are immediately welcomed in a polished dynamic space. The Chicago Marriott Schaumburg's Great Room encourages guests to gather, collaborate and unwind in a multi-function, flexible space. With more than 300 seats, the Great Room also features a full-service bar and a restaurant led by award-winning Executive Chef William Delby in the expansive social center of the property. Serving locally sourced cuisine, guests will delight in a variety of snacks, shareable plates, entrees, desserts and changing weekly specials, including dishes like Wisconsin Poutine, Steel Head Trout Flatbread, Chicken Schnitzel, Lobster Mac & Cheese, Pot de Crème Chocolate and other delicious options.

Agreeably situated for gatherings, Chicago Marriott Schaumburg's more than 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space may be adjusted to personalize each experience with modern technology and available services. The property is able to accommodate groups ranging from an intimate business meeting to a large 1,000-guest gala and more.

One of just five properties in Chicagoland with an upscale MClub Lounge, Chicago Marriott Schaumburg will offer MClub members the opportunity to enjoy 24/7 access to a private and exclusive space, perfect for preparing for the day over breakfast, working and recharging with snacks throughout the day or relaxing over a drink in the evening. Designed to promote productivity, inspiration and relaxation in a flexible space, the MClub Lounge features an array of premium concierge services, an inviting, spacious design and sophisticated atmosphere.

The balance of nature and industry inspires the hotel's design, where both can co-exist in easy harmony. Throughout the property materials such as concrete, velvet, red oak wood and hickory are juxtaposed in an intricate weaving of texture with rhythm and repetition. The hotel highlights softer textures and natural materials with platform space dividers, illuminated screen walls, vertical and horizontal partitions, interior framing windows and niche seating welcoming guests to connect with other and embrace life. The tranquil design, created by Kraig Kalashian Architecture & Design, draws further from nature with accents of pale blues and soothing grays.

Located in the heart of Schaumburg, near Hoffman Estates and Itasca and minutes from O'Hare International Airport and downtown Chicago, the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg is the ideal home base for guests visiting for both business and leisure. Nearby hotspots include the Allstate Arena, Medieval Times, LegoLand, the Schaumburg Convention Center, Woodfield Mall, Spring Valley Nature Center and a vast array of restaurants, entertainment venues and shopping destinations.

Hotel Group Meetings: Uncommon Destinations

The last few years have been good to the Hotel Group Meetings industry and that trend is expected to continue into 2019. Planners are brimming with confidence due to an expanding economy and increased job creation, which typically results in a boost in corporate meetings. Given this promising outlook, planners are trying to outdo themselves to satisfy the high expectations of their clients. One notable trend is to integrate unusual settings into the meeting experience, hosting groups at local zoos, aquariums, museums, event centers, or other outdoor facilities. The goal is to embrace uncommon destinations, rather than a typical hotel conference room, so that meetings can be memorable, unique and stimulating. This is also part of another trend which is to support all things local - from hosting events at landmark city venues; to catering through local restaurants, food trucks and microbreweries; to hosting off-site excursions like agri-tours, athletic events or scenic 5k routes. However, though the setting might be spectacular, there are still some bedrock components that must be provided to ensure a successful meeting. Free, high-speed Wi-Fi is still one of the most requested services. Planners have to make sure that a comprehensive communication infrastructure is in place so clients can easily connect - and stay connected - to the network throughout the entire meeting experience. Also, technology tools can be used to streamline the booking, registration, and check-in process, and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) materials can be utilized to ensure seamless access to conference events. There are also numerous software tools that encourage audience participation, as well as integrating polls, Q&A, surveys and games into speakers' presentations. The September Hotel Business Review will examine issues relevant to group meetings and will report on what some hotels are doing to promote this sector of their operations.
