CHICAGO, Aug. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to endless entertainment and quick connectivity, Courtyard Chicago Downtown/River North plans to blow the competition right out of the Windy City.
The hotel in Downtown Chicago, which just earned a 2016 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, has just introduced Netflix, Crackle, Hulu and YouTube to its already robust premium movie and cable channels — including NFL Network, Big Ten Network, Fox Sports, CMT, Disney Channel, Univision, Bravo and E! — in its guest rooms and suites. The upgraded entertainment package now makes it a breeze for visitors to catch their favorite programming without an additional cost.
The enhancement complements a boost to the hotel's high-speed internet capabilities, which all guests have access to for free. With Miracast screen mirroring, visitors can wirelessly stream photos, videos and presentations straight to their room's flat-panel TV. Easily accessible USB ports also provide the ability to hook up gaming systems for even more pleasure while away from home.
When it comes to providing pleasure, comfort and convenience, the Downtown Chicago hotel has been recognized by the world's largest travel site. TripAdvisor, with 350 million reviews covering more than 6.5 million accommodations, restaurants and attractions in 48 countries, has honored the hotel with the prestigious award. The accolade, now in its sixth year, takes into account the quality, quantity and recency of guest opinions submitted over a 12-month period. To receive the honor, the hotel maintained an overall TripAdvisor rating of at least four out of five, had a required number of reviews and was listed on the site for at least 12 months.
"Just like our trendy neighborhood that borders the Magnificent Mile, our hotel is proud to offer stylish accommodations and modern amenities that attract travelers who appreciate fine art, dining, design and drinks," said Chris Kerbow, general manager. "The prestige that comes from garnering this TripAdvisor acknowledgement drives us even more to please our guests, since it's their praises that got us recognized. We hope that our new entertainment options will be something guests and TripAdvisor endorse us for in the future."
