We’re honored and thrilled to say our very own George Jordan, general manager at the Hotel Felix, has won the NOW Revolutionary of the Month Award. George received the award in recognition of his quick-thinking and call to action during the Blizzard of 2011 that buried Chicago this winter. George designed a special blizzard rate, planned to have extra staff on hand to serve stranded guests, and even had staff members brave the snow to venture to nearby Whole Foods to replenish the food supply when stock ran low. George and the Hotel Felix’s social media agency worked to spread word on the special one-time rate via Twitter, Facebook, and yours truly, Happy Naturally. It paid off – 41 rooms were booked almost instantly and Chicagoans had a safe, comfortable (and eco-friendly to boot) place to ride the blizzard out.
