Hotels in Illinois, Washington and Hawaii have changed management companies this month. Here’s the latest.

Crescent Hotels & Resorts now manages the Embassy Suites by Hilton Chicago North Shore Deerfield in Illinois. The 237-suite hotel just wrapped a multimillion-dollar renovation in April. The hotel features a restaurant, 7,000 square feet of event space, free shuttle service into Chicago and a business center. The Embassy Suites is located 14 miles from Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

The Seattle-based management and consulting company Columbia Hospitality began operating the Icicle Village Resort June 1. Located in the Bavarian-themed town of Leavenworth, Wash., it includes 121 rooms and suites, condominiums, 9,200 square feet of event space and an outdoor tented garden. The hotel’s amenities include an on-site restaurant, a spa, two pools, a mini-golf course, a basketball court and an indoor game room.

OLS Hotels & Resorts began providing sales, marketing and revenue optimization services to Volcano House June 10. The property includes the only hotel and restaurant within Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. OLS, a company with 24 hotels and resorts throughout the U.S., currently operates five other Hawaiian properties: Hotel Renew and Royal Grove Waikiki on Oahu; Plantation Hale Suites and Banyan Harbor Resort on Kauaʻi; and Ainamalu at Waikoloa Beach Resort on Hawai'i Island.
