The new Conrad Chicago and a $70 million renovation at the ONE UN New York are today’s top stories in the meetings and events industry.

Now Open: Conrad Chicago

The new Conrad Chicago has officially opened its doors, bringing 10,000 square feet of conference and events space to the Magnificent Mile. The hotel’s central spiral staircase opens into a double height atrium lounge and leads directly to a series of pre-function and event spaces. There are 10 multifunction meeting rooms with 360-degree views, natural light, and state-of-the-art technology. 

Planners will be able to check out 3D imaging of the spaces on Social Tables soon. 

The hotel also has 287 guest rooms, including 24 suites and two hospitality suites, as well as three restaurants by Chef Richard Sandoval: Baptiste & Bottle, Noyane, and Il Tavolino. Il Tavolino is inspired by Italian cafés and also offers a speciality coffee program in partnership with local roaster Metropolis. Open for breakfast and lunch, the menu features breakfast sandwiches, artisan pastries, pizza, salad, pasta, shareable snacks, and fresh pressed juices. Baptiste & Bottle is on the 20th floor and serves American cuisine and a bourbon centric beverage program for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Slated to open in summer 2017, Noyane will be the hotel’s Japanese rooftop restaurant, offering Japanese cuisine, sushi, sashimi, sakes and beer.
