Boutique Hotels Wrigleyville Chicago

It’s funny, we have lived here about 10 years and have always known about these three hidden gems.

Yet, I talk to people who have lived here their whole life! And they are not familiar with City Suites, The Majestic and The Willows.

Willows and Majestic are tucked away in quiet neighborhoods, where you can blend right in with the locals. While City Suites is right on Belmont amidst the buzzing energy!

Summer and Fall are fantastic times in Chicago! Whether you are a local and have friends traveling that will need rooms or you are a traveler reading this – it’s NEVER TO EARLY TO RESERVE YOUR ROOM. The small inventory of rooms in Boystown and Lakeview always sell out.      ESPECIALLY  around  CUBS  dates!

 


In Lakeview you get small, intimate restaurants and a treasure trove of shopping neighborhoods with unique shops and art galleries! Golf courses, the Lincoln Park Zoo, Wrigleyville and the Cubs Stadium, Old Towne, marinas and harbors, Hollywood gay beach, Andersonville, plus endless waterfront walking and bike paths, are all very accessible!

 

For years, visitors and locals alike have branded The Majestic Hotel the pre-eminent boutique hotel in Chicago. Offering the atmosphere of a well-appointed, upscale English country estate, this 100 percent, non-smoking Hotel offers the perfect haven of relaxation amidst the energetic city life found in the popular Lakeview neighborhood.

 

Broughton Hotels has 3 properties in the area. The Majestic Hotel, The Willows Hotel & The City Suites – each welcome you with an abundance of personality, style and charm that epitomizes the essence of their environments.

Exuding the charm of historic buildings – circa 1920s – They are a collection of boutique hotels that combine a stylish, unique and alluring atmosphere with a location that is ideal and accessible – just 10 minutes north of downtown Chicago’s business, financial and shopping districts – and brimming with the quintessential qualities of an upscale, city hotel. You can be just steps away from all of the gay events, in a cool neighborhood!

All three properties in Lakeview pride themselves on their personalized care, premier service and exceeding the needs of their discriminating leisure and business travelers. The staff is passionate here and ensure an enjoyable and memorable stay – something you don’t often see in the big hotels downtown. These properties boast a welcoming “neighborhood” charm yet with all the luxury boutique services and amenities of a full-service hotel.

Many packages are available depending on your interests. Everything from theatre and dining to comedy and baseball!

Vista Tower in Chicago Moves Forward

FROM  CURBED  CHICAGO –  Following encouraging news from Magellan Development regarding the pre-sale of condos in the upcoming 93-story Vista Tower, nearby residents of downtown Chicago’s Lakeshore East neighborhood were recently presented with a logistical plan and tentative timetable for the construction of the Studio Gang-designed building. While the presentation shed new light on the four-year-long construction process, perhaps the most exciting kernel of information was the project’s stated start date of late July/early August.

Navy Pier Hotel Coming

FROM  CURBED  CHICAGO – Last night, 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly and the Streeterville Organization of Active Residents (SOAR) hosted a public meeting allowing representatives of Navy Pier to unveil the next phase of the ongoing transformation underway at the state’s most popular tourist destination. While the ambitious, multi-phase Centennial Vision has already seen the implementation of new landscaping, hardscaping, dining options, and an upsized Ferris wheel since work began in 2014, the latest plans call for a new welcome pavilion and a completely revamped eastern end — including a 240-key hotel and rooftop terrace.

The hotel isn’t the only change coming to the pier’s eastern terminus. Navy Pier Executive Vice President Steve Haemmerle revealed plans for a semi-circular, gently sloping “Lake Overlook” walkway that would rise over a new shallow reflecting pool dubbed the “Lake Mirror.” In addition to new landscaping, a new “Lake Terrace” would step down at the pier’s eastern end, allowing visitors to get closer to the water. The plans were designed by James Corner Field Operations — the firm behind the High Line in New York.

NATURE – A Walking Play

nature a walking play

Here is something really unique  and different, in Chicagoland  for a limited  time!

TigerLion Arts presents Nature, the mythic telling of Emerson and Thoreau’s mutual love affair with the natural world.  Grounded in the story of their friendship, this virtuosic production offers a perspective on their lives that is strikingly relevant, richly complex, and yet utterly simple.  Nature is performed outdoors as a “walking play.”  A professional ensemble of actors takes the audience on a journey through the natural environment as scenes unfold around them. Bagpipes, ancient flutes, drums and rich choral arrangements are intricately woven into the experience.

Nature is an extraordinary, family-friendly journey that co-mingles story, spirit, and nature, as a means to reconnect its audience with the natural world. This original work is collaboratively created with writer/actor Tyson Forbes, a direct descendant of Ralph Waldo Emerson.

 

nature play chicago morton grove

In today’s world, we are so estranged from our natural environment, and at TigerLion Arts, we feel that humankind must reconnect with nature in order to survive.

As oil spills into our oceans, as we race through our lives, as we look further and further outside ourselves for the answers, it is our hope that Nature can be a catalyst for our collective healing.

Cirque du Soleil TORUK 5 Days Only!

cirque-du-soliel-toruk

 

THIS IS GOING TO BE AMAZING!

The new Cirque du Soleil touring arena show inspired by James Cameron’s record-breaking movie AVATAR, TORUK – The First Flight, will be presented at the United Center, 1901 W. Madison St, on August 3-7, as part of a global tour in arenas. The show is presented by Visa Signature® in association with United MileagePlus®.

 

The show

Inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, TORUK – The First Flight transports you to the world of Pandora in a visually stunning live setting. Experience a storytelling odyssey through a new world of imagination, discovery, and possibility.

 

Through a riveting fusion of cutting-edge visuals, puppetry and stagecraft buoyed by a soaring cinematic score, Cirque du Soleil applies its unique signature style to James Cameron’s imaginary world and “makes the bond” between two kindred artistic visions that capture the imagination.

 

This live immersive experience also bears the distinct signature of directors and multimedia innovators Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon. It is a living ode to the Na’vi’s symbiotic coexistence with nature and their belief in the basic interconnectedness of all living things.

 

Narrated by a “Na’vi Storyteller” and populated by unforgettable characters, TORUK – The First Flight is a mythical tale set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film AVATAR, and before any humans ever set foot on Pandora.

 

When a natural catastrophe threatens to destroy the sacred Tree of Souls, Ralu and Entu, two Omaticaya boys on the brink of adulthood, fearlessly decide to take matters into their own hands. Upon learning that Toruk can help them save the Tree of Souls, they set out, together with their newfound friend Tsyal, on a quest high up in the Floating Mountains to find the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Prophecy is fulfilled when a pure soul rises among the clans to ride Toruk for the first time and save the Na’vi from a terrible fate.

It’s like a Fall Gay Pride Celebration with even MORE amusement and entertainment!”

 

In an interview with ChicagoPride.com: “We are very excited that this private night for charity continues to grow every year and we have gifted over $35,000 to various groups,” said Derrick Sorles, Snell’s husband of 17 years and business partner, “We are more than thrilled that the amazing Todrick Hall has signed on to be with us this year. He is in the middle of his “Straight Outta Oz” tour and took a break to be with us and perform!”

 

“We are honored that some of our peers including GRAB Magazine, ChicagoPride.com and QUEST Magazine in Wisconsin also help us by donating advertising space for this event! It’s truly a community event where everyone comes together for the greater good!” says Derrick Sorles.

 

Advance $41 tickets can be purchased NOW at www.CelebrateDiversityChicago.com
