CHICAGO and MCLEAN, VA – August 7, 2018 – Hilton (NYSE: HLT), along with First Hospitality Group, Inc. (FHG), today announced the opening of its newest hotel, the company’s first tri-branded property, which includes Hilton Garden Inn Chicago McCormick Place, Hampton Inn by Hilton Chicago McCormick Place and Home2 Suites by Hilton Chicago McCormick Place. Connected to McCormick Place, North America’s largest convention center, and adjacent to Wintrust Arena, the property is a one-of-kind addition to downtown Chicago’s South Loop and Motor Row District lodging offerings.

The Renaissance Toledo Downtown Hotel has received a Four Diamond award from AAA, joining just a handful of hotels in the state to be awarded the auto club’s second-highest rating. The hotel, which is owned by Chicago-based First Hospitality Group Inc., announced the award Monday. “This rating acknowledges the hard work and dedication of our staff,” general manager Jeffrey Hassan said in a statement. “We are committed to exceeding guest expectations and providing a premier travel experience.” The Renaissance Toledo Downtown is the only hotel in the Toledo area to receive the AAA Four Diamond Ranking. 

“The people that I work with everyday have obviously different challenges to meet each day as do I, but when we all come in and we all come together as a team, we get it done. Besides the great guests we get to meet…What word best describes FHG? I would say “culture.” FHG allows people to do what they love doing, go above and beyond for the guests, deliver unexpected delights and have fun working. Well, I started in hospitality as a housekeeper. I worked as the front desk agent for four years and then, from there, I went on to be a supervisor and a Guest Experience Manager. After my four years I wanted to help more.”
