They do things big in Chicago and the international terminal at its signature airport, Chicago O'Hare, will see its first major expansion since it arrived on the scene more than two decades ago.
A prime example of how embracing and understanding other cultures can be a win-win situation, both for businesses and the communities they serve.
Many airport hotels are trending upwards in their quality and convenience but there are still many more not yet up to par with modern travelers and not prepared to handle growing passenger traffic around the world.
There's stupid development, which cities allow a lot of, and smart development, like this. Chicago tourism is really missing out.
Now, even smaller U.S. cities and towns are pushing back against disruptive Airbnb rentals.
We'll continue to see this play out in city after city until some city or some sharing economy brand comes up with a good solution.
It's a strong story, especially considering the massive state funding cuts both to tourism marketing and to state-run attractions. Luckily Chicago can compete on its own. The rest of the state didn't fare so well.
If hotels want to book more meetings and events, they need to know how to speak the specific industry language of the events and planners they’re working with.
This is another example of innovative marketing cross-promotion today pairing pop culture, cultural institutions, and global hospitality brands.
Pity the passenger that transits through Chicago from November to May.
