ROCKLEIGH, NJ—Dolce Hotels and Resorts has been named manager of the 1,042-room Q Center in St. Charles, IL, which represents the largest conference hotel in the Midwest.
Q Center joins the Dolce system of 26 properties representing more than 5,000 rooms in 10 states, Canada and Europe. It also becomes Dolce’s first conference hotel in the Chicago area and its third property in the Midwest, following the opening of The Alexander, A Dolce Hotel, in Indianapolis last year.
The facility features 150,000 sq. ft. of function space certified by the International Association of Conference Centers, five restaurants and lounges and a 4,500-sq.-ft. fitness center on a 95-acre campus.
“We will leverage more than 30 years of experience in the meetings and training space with the features of a renowned facility,” stated Steven A. Rudnitsky, Dolce president and CEO. “We will develop an enhanced offering for meeting planners and groups who count on Q Center to offer a state-of-the-art experience. The features that make Q Center a preferred destination for meetings will be complemented by the service elements and operational skills that distinguish the Dolce brand name.”
