The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and although it is usually characterized by fireworks, overeating, parades and family get-togethers, it’s important to remember what the holiday is really about.

On Independence day we are celebrating the birth of our nation, the anniversary of the creation of the land of the free and the home of the brave!

In honor of the greatest country in the world, we here at Broughton Hotels of Chicago have decided to do our best to help support those who defend it.

Though it’s a small gesture, we believe that sending letters to the troops telling them how much we appreciate and support them can make a big difference. So give our young men and women overseas some love from home. Now through July 8th  we are collecting letters, cards and pictures to send to our troops.

On our Facebook page you can see an album of people who have already sent their messages! For more information on where to send your mail, check out the Help Support Our Troops tab. 

Earlier this month, we asked the fans of Broughton Hotels of Chicago to brag about their moms.

Via Facebook, we asked our friends to post something (including—but not limited to—a story, picture, or video) on our Facebook page telling the world why their moms are so great.

What’s the catch, you ask?

There’s no catch. We just love moms. To celebrate the one day of the year where mothers across the country get the recognition they deserve, we offered a free two-night stay at one of the Broughton Hotels of Chicago and two free tickets to the Field Museum!

The winner of the contest was determined by the number of “likes” the post received on Facebook. The entry with the most votes by the time the contest ended on May 12th was submitted by Matthew Ausmann, whose post gathered 68 votes. Here’s what Matthew had to say about his mom:

My mom is Jesus’ homegirl. She makes the Dos Equis’ “Most Interesting Man in the World” seem like a boring idiot. The Angry Birds are angry because they’ve never met my mom. My mom is the one who bit the Apple logo. She knows several words that rhyme with “orange” and champions eat Wheaties because my mom once ate Wheaties.

Congratulations, Matthew! We at Broughton Hotels of Chicago wish your mom the happiest of Mother’s Days and safe travels to the Windy City.

Fill your pot with lots of coins to make it cling and clang,

Share with friends an Irish jig, or an Irish song you’ve sang.

Answer questions, wear lots of green, you never really know,

If that leprechaun is around the corner and what he’s bound to show.

Take on each challenge and let us see all the hard work you’ve done,

From hip to historic, Broughton hotels are loaded with style. Three of these original boutique hotels are located just a few miles apart in downtown Chicago. The city offers such diverse cultural venues, that there truly is something for everyone. Enjoying all the sites, sounds, and tastes of the city is a must, but staying at a Broughton Hotel will only sweeten your city experience.

The first of these boutique hotels is the City Suites Hotel. It has a sophisticated style, an alluring ambiance, and striking visual details. It offers business and leisure travelers the most remarkable service and highly regarded amenities. City Suites is distinguished by its beautiful Art Deco and period furnishings.

The Majestic Hotel is one of the most superb hotels in all of Chicago. It is located in a quite residential neighborhood, across from the Lake Michigan lakefront. This property offers a harmonious atmosphere of an English countryside estate. The energetic city life is located only a few miles away, but you would never know it by the poster beds and tapestry furnishings located in all guestrooms.

The last of the Chicago hotels is The Willows Hotel. It is located in the heart of the Lincoln Park/Lakeview neighborhood, and is surrounded by numerous dining and shopping attractions. It features 19th century French furnishings and patterned wall coverings that put this boutique hotel in a class of its own.

Broughton Hospitality is committed to unparalleled value for its guests by providing outstanding customer service while respecting their associates and the communities they serve. If Broughton sounds like the place for you, be sure to check out Broughton Hospitality today!
