Experience a big-city hotel stay that doesn’t feel like your typical urban visit at Chicago’s Claridge House, nestled in the sought-after Gold Coast neighborhood. The hotel’s sophisticated décor and serene residential ambience foster the atmosphere of an oasis amid the hustle and bustle of a busy metropolis.

In 2018, the historic property underwent a $9 million renovation, completely redesigning all 165 guestrooms, the lobby, meeting spaces and a fitness center. The transformation into a welcoming, modern retreat still stayed true to the building’s classic architecture and historical significance.

Designed in 1923 by a native Chicago architect, the hotel enjoys a long history in Chicago and its Gold Coast neighborhood home. It began as a residential hotel, and today showcases artwork, sculptures and more from its 90-year history.

Claridge House’s quiet residential location is still close to Chicago’s notable landmarks, including Navy Pier, theaters, Magnificent Mile shopping and more. Position yourself in the enviable Gold Coast neighborhood and enjoy Chicago’s many delights.

The lobby-level Juniper signature restaurant is a sophisticated, but never stuffy, eatery offering everything from juices to tapas, and indoor and outdoor seating. Live music entertains on Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons.

The 1,000-square-foot DaVinci Room is named for the artist, and boasts event planning and business services on site, full catering, A/V equipment and technical support and preferred rates for event attendees.

How to Prevent Your Miles and Points from Expiring

Keeping up with expiration dates for various miles and points programs is not typically something high on anyone’s to-do list. Here are a few ways to keep track of your points across programs and get ahead of any impending expiration dates.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.

Alaska Airlines Begins New Sustainability Initiative

Alaska Airlines oversees many sustainability efforts as part of its goal to reduce in-flight waste per passenger by 70 percent by 2020.
