C2E2 – Chicago’s Pop Culture Event of the Year

250x140xcq5dam.thumbnail.250.140.png.pagespeed.ic.2lJf9lZGLtWe are so excited to be the headquarters hotel once again for the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo April 25-27th, 2014.

Keep in touch with us via social media during C2E2.  The show’s official hashtag is #C2E2, and be sure to tag the hotel’s location and social profiles in your photos, tweets, and updates.  If you show us some love, you might get something special!

Be sure to check out The CBR Bar, also known as our M/X Lounge.  C2E2, along with Comic Book Resource, takes over M/X for all three nights of the convention to serve cocktails that are sure to make you feel like you have superpowers.  The CBR Bar is the perfect place when you’re tired and thirsty from being on the show floor all day.  Meet fellow fans, exhibitors, and creators, and enjoy local brews and Hyatt’s signature cocktails and a mix and match mini taco and sandwich menu.   Revolution Brewery will be providing Galaxy Hero as C2E2′s specialty beer and we will also be serving up these themed drinks and food items.

  • The Hero – Jameson with Apple Pucker, Sweet & Sour, and Lemonade
  • The Villain – Peach Schnapps & Jack Daniels, Sweet & Sour, Pineapple Juice
  • The Secret Identity – Blue Moon beer and Amaretto
  • Damsel in Distress – Amaretto and Ketel One Vodka, topped with Cranberry and Orange Juices
  • Unstoppable Force – Bacardi, Brandy, Orange Juice, and Sweet & Sour
  • The Double Cross – Ketel One Vodka, Amaretto, Club Soda
  • Cebrewski – Beer of your choice combined with Bacardi Limon

Food items:

  • The Colossal – Brie cheese, gouda, peppered bacon & caramelized onions on long sliced white bread.  Served with tomato-basil sauce.
  • The Anarchist – Double stacked grass fed beef patties with cheddar cheese, bacon, friend egg, poblano pepper relish, lettuce, & tomato on a pretzel bun.  Served with horseradish bleu cheese, french fries, & pickle spear.

Meet at M/X Lounge at 5pm on  Friday, April 25th, to take a group “cosplay” photo of guests staying in the hotel.  It’s the perfect way to practice for Saturday’s C2E2 Crown Champions of Cosplay competition.

#InAHyattWorld, Chicago Landmarks Come to You

This past week, we’ve been honored at Hyatt Regency McCormick Place to welcome guests from all over the world for US Travel Association’s International Pow Wow.  To show attendees what life is life #InAHyattWorld, we brought The Bean, and other Chicago landmarks to our lobby, via a photo booth with a green screen.  If attendees were too busy with appointments to actually catch the sights of Navy Pier, Wrigley Field or Buckingham Fountain while in Chicago, our interactive photo booth allowed them to leave with “memories” from these landmarks without even leaving our lobby.  All the while they were refreshed with blueberry sherbert spritzers and stayed sweet chewing on purple, fruit punch jellybeans.

Here are some of our favorite photos from the #InAHyattWorld photo booth.

Fotor0411120736Looking to come to Chicago this spring or summer?  Our new Stay & Play Package is a great savings.  The package includes:

  • Free self-parking with unlimited in/out privileges (a $34/day value)
