NEW KID ON THE BLOCK
THE FORESTER Hotel, a contemporary, chic new hotel located at 200 N. Field Drive in Conway Business Park, is set to open in April. The first hotel to open in the community since 1929, The Forester Hotel concept is inspired by the city of Lake Forest’s motto “Naturae et Scientiae Amor” which translates to “Love of Science and Nature.” The Forester Hotel will be at a crossroads safeguarding all the comforts of Hyatt, while at the same time blazing new trails with boutique offerings and several on-site dining options including the chef driven, full-service restaurant, Oaken Bistro + Bar.
Science and nature are woven throughout The Forester Hotel, from artwork inspired by natural fractals and meeting rooms named after native plants and flowers, to the front desk itself being constructed of a solid, single white oak tree trunk. The luscious property will feature 156 spacious guest rooms, including 10 suites, each with 55-inch flat-screen Smart HDTVs, mini-fridges, individually controlled heating and air conditioning, blackout curtains, and more. The hotel will also be pet friendly.
