River North’s new Triplex hotel development ready for the ‘Challenge’

On tonight’s WGN News, I’ll be talking with the folks over at the River North Business Association about the River North Challenge. The annual events puts teams of four against each other on a sort-of Scavenger Hunt across the neigborhood. Teams start at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza and perform physical and mental challenges, then move on to the next location in the area for the next event.

The four-hour challenge will take players through many of River North’s hotspots and hotels, including the brand new “Triplex” development at Grand and Clark. The concept features three different hotels on one block – Aloft, Hyatt Place, and Fairfield Inn and Suites. The Triplex just opened today and they gave us a tour. The video will be posted here after it airs. Here’s more about the challenge and hotels…
