Top Trends

2021 marks the 10th anniversary of Philadelphia’s music festival Made in America. Headlining this year’s event is Justin Bieber, making his first debut at this festival, and Lil Baby along with Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion and Roddy Ricch.


The festival will take place Labor Day Weekend, along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The multistage concert spans two days with thousands of attendees. Rapper and music producer Jay-Z, Roc Nation and Live Nation are the masterminds behind the iconic event, starting the first concert in Philadelphia on Labor Day Weekend 2012.


People from all around the Tri-State area make the trek to Philadelphia for the event. For those who do not have friends in the city, staying in a hotel close by is the best option as driving and finding parking can delay visitors from seeing their favorite artists. The Logan Hotel Philadelphia is within walking distance of the venue, with a terrace to grab a drink, recharge and listen to the music before heading back into the crowd. The Windsor Suites offers guests a cool getaway from the September heat with a rooftop pool for concert-goers to cool off. Aloft Hotel Philadelphia Downtown is a bit further from the action, offering a less-hectic scene to enjoy the city and festival while still in walking distance. With paid parking and surrounded by amazing dining options, this hotel is perfect for the savvy traveler.

Hotel Chicago West Loop Becomes City’s First All Street Mural Hotel

Hotel Chicago West Loop is Chicago’s first hotel to bring street art inside, and to every guestroom.

Today, all 116 rooms at the hotel have been painted with street murals, becoming some of the most distinctive lodging spaces in the city.
