Midway Hotel Center: A Home Away From Home for Visiting Chicago Sports Fans

Monday, September 10th, 2012

Sports fans will love Midway Hotel Center, a terrific home base for those visiting Chicago to catch the action from the city’s many teams.

The next couple months are extremely busy as far as sports go. The White Sox are holding a slim lead over the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central division, and U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Sox, is just nine miles from our hotels near Midway Airport. While the Cubs are out of the running, their home games at Wrigley Field still remain a favorite pastime for Windy City residents and visitors alike.

The Bears kick off the regular season at home against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, September 9. To further our reputation as an ideal Chicago sports hotel center, our property is just 11 miles from Soldier Field. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish also play at Soldier Field on Saturday, October 6, against the Miami Hurricanes.

The Bulls begin their preseason Tuesday, October 9, against the Memphis Grizzlies at the United Center, just ten miles from the comfortable accommodations that Midway Hotel Center’s nine hotels offer visitors. And the Detroit Red Wings visit the Blackhawks when the NHL starts its preseason, the first home game being Friday, September 28.

Chicago is not low on athletic entertainment, especially in the fall, as some sports wrap and others get started. Don’t miss a minute of the action, and find your home away from home at Midway Hotel Center. Book your stay today!

 

Making Chicago Ever Accessible: Renovations at Our Midway Airport Hotel Put the City at Your Fingertips

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

When we set out to upgrade our hotel by Midway Airport, we had one main guideline: make the city as accessible as possible to our guests. That’s why, at Midway Hotel Center, our renovations—some complete, some nearing conclusion—are so exciting to announce. To add to the occasion, we are also offering event-planning packages for the coming months.

Renovations include:

  • The Courtyard, which received a $2.7 million overhaul, now pops with vivid colors in its lobby and features ample space for lounging, holding small meetings, or catching your favorite sports on our high-definition televisions. The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect® serves an array of healthy menu options.

Check out the new GoBoard® 4.0, a 55-inch LCD touch screen, for local travel insight including maps, weather, and headline news. Send flight information or travel directions straight to your smart phone (there’s also free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel), or locate local businesses and event details with ease. You’ll be a Windy City expert in no time.

  • The Marriott is also receiving $4.5 million in upgrades. Major touch ups to guest rooms have been completed, and in October 2012, the meeting space, concierge lounge and lobby will look equally stunning upon the conclusion of renovations.

We are celebrating these changes with more high value incentives for group meetings booked by December 31, 2012 and arriving by March 31, 2013. Booking a minimum peak of 40 rooms or more yields the following concessions:

  • For groups with 40-99 cumulative room nights, choose two of the complimentary upgrades listed below.
  • For groups with 100-149 cumulative room nights, choose three of the complimentary upgrades listed below.
