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.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
