Oak Brook, IL (PRWEB) November 10, 2014
The Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center is rekindling its community spirit by bringing back two popular traditions: Thanksgiving Feast and Breakfast with Santa. In an effort to provide a home away from home for locals and out of town guests, the multi-faceted retreat situated in the upscale neighborhood of Oak Brook cordially invites families to show appreciation for each other amid a festive setting this holiday season. The hotel will host a special Thanksgiving dinner on November 27th, followed by three Sundays straight of Breakfast with Santa on December 7th, 14th, and 21st.
“Our priority is to once again inject a local attitude that speaks to Midwestern values and the heritage of the area, reviving the focus on community engagement from the property’s earlier years,” said Stefan Mühle, General Manager of Oak Brook Hills, which turned flags to Hilton earlier this summer.
Thanksgiving Feast, November 27:
The resurrecting of Thanksgiving Feast, a longtime staple at Oak Brook Hills, will kick off the holiday season on the right note. On November 27th, Executive Chef Sean Patrick Curry welcomes the general public and hotel guests to a lavish harvest banquet within a beautifully-appointed dining room (three seatings: 12pm, 2pm & 4pm). For $35.95 per adult / $14.95 per child, Chef Curry is offering an inspired Thanksgiving lineup that plays off his new ‘modern farm cuisine’ concept – focusing on local ingredients and artisan producers. The menu ranges from delicacy items to traditional dishes with gourmet twists, including selections like: Kabocha squash soup and shrimp bisque, aged cheese and charcuterie boards, handmade Gnocchi and haricot vert, and whole white breasted turkey and smoked prime rib – to name just a few. A decadent dessert table and a kid’s fixings table will round out the offerings. The occasion will also include an additional $25 wine upgrade option; with wine pairings hand selected by Chef Curry. Reservations are required by calling 630.850.5507.
Breakfast with Santa, December 7, 14 and 21:
Next up on the holiday hits list is one of the most revered pastimes in the history of Oak Brook Hills – Breakfast with Santa. On Sunday, December 7th and repeating December 14th and 21st at 9am to 12pm, Santa Claus will make special stops at Oak Brook Hills to meet with children of all ages. The celebratory brunch is when families have the opportunity to take their annual family photo with the Jolly Old Elf before enjoying Chef Curry’s copious breakfast buffet amidst a picturesque setting. Not only does Oak Brook Hills pull out all the stops on holiday decorations inside, but the hotel’s 150 acre estate will also serve as a scenic holiday backdrop outside – with hayrides and hot chocolate giving way to a true winter wonderland experience. For $29.95 per person, children can personally deliver their wish lists to Santa, and then revel in a joyful family brunch. The event benefits HCS Family Services, in which hotel staff asks guests to consider bringing a nonperishable item to donate. Reservations are required by calling 630.850.5507.
Either Thanksgiving Feast or Breakfast with Santa can be combined with a special ‘Home for the Holidays’ room package, where guests can enjoy the event and a discounted guestroom for the evening. Room rates start at only $79. Go to http://chicagooakbrookhills.hilton.com or call 630.850.5507 for more info.
