Reimagined spaces in some of our favorite places
Hyatt Regency Shaumburg, Chicago
A $15 million renovation left the sleek, marbled space with a floating cube positioned in the middle of the atrium ceiling, anchored by a large communal table for drinks, bites and conversation. The modern vibe is echoed in Mahogany Ballroom, where 12 new chandeliers highlight the business at hand. Phase two, slated for completion in 2018, will refresh all 468 guest rooms.
Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth, Montreal
This property reopened after a year of remodeling and now offers 85,000 sq. ft. of convention space and a business campus designed to inspire and stimulate by offering creative spaces, including the Ping room, with artificial turf and a pingpong table. Erasable white boards, 180-degree wraparound multimedia displays and touchscreen video walls make it the meeting space of tomorrow.
NOPSI Hotel, New Orleans
The 1927 headquarters of the former New Orleans Public Service, Inc. building in the Central Business District of the French Quarter reincarnated as a 217-room, upscale destination. The Salamander Hotel & Resorts property includes 10,000 sq. ft. of architecturally significant indoor and outdoor meeting space, and a sophisticated rooftop pool and bar escape.
Hotel Zoe, San Francisco
Fisherman’s Wharf’s newest luxury boutique hotel was christened after a multi-million-dollar reimagination that reflected the bay views, inspired by luxurious Mediterranean yachts. Owned by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust and operated by Noble House Hotels & Resorts, the property capitalizes on never-before-used courtyard space, the addition of Zoe Bar and Italian hospitality available at Pescatore Restaurant & Bar.
