A first-class business hotel located in downtown, Trump Hotel Chicago is offering PressReader as a value-add, eco-friendly amenity for hotel guests.

"The Trump Hotel Chicago is committed to leading the way when it comes to providing innovative solutions to our guests and visitors," said T. Colm O'Callaghan, vice president and managing director at the Trump Hotel Chicago.
