EVEN Hotel wins coveted Stella Award
EVEN Hotel and the Tinley Park Convention Center recently won a gold medal for Best Renovation in the Midwest Region as part of the 2021 Stella Awards.

“The Stellas are some of the most coveted awards in the country for those in the meetings industry, and EVEN Hotel won it for good reason – it’s a unique, beautiful building with all the latest 21st Century amenities,” Tinley Park Mayor Michael Glotz said. “We have some of the best hotels here in Tinley Park, and the fact EVEN Hotel won this award is proof of that.”

NorthStar Meetings Group, which administers the award, combines public and planner voting in conjunction with third-party, objective planner judging to determine its winners. To be recognized as a Stella Award winner, nominees had to finish in the top three in the public voting in their respective categories and rank highly with the judges who scored their category.

“It’s a great honor to win the gold award for the entire Midwest region,” said Daniel Fitzgerald, managing director of EVEN Hotel and the Tinley Park Convention Center. “It really validates all the hard work we’ve put into the hotel these past few years.”

EVEN Hotel, 18501 Convention Center Drive, Tinley Park, was rebranded from a Holiday Inn last year, and full renovations were completed this summer. The new hotel features 202 guest rooms, each with a coffeemaker, refrigerator and in-room fitness equipment. Other new additions include two eateries, Local One restaurant and Cork & Kale, and an on-site fitness center and yoga studio.

Launched in 2012, EVEN Hotels is a national chain specializing in serving travelers’ holistic wellness needs through fitness opportunities, healthy food options, a wellness-savvy staff and natural spaces. EVEN Hotels was created to meet the growing demand and lifestyle of wellness-minded travelers and enables wellness on guests’ terms.
The Chicago Southland Convention and Visitors Bureau nominated EVEN Hotel and the Tinley Park Convention Center for this award.
