photo (2) Two days ago we celebrated the culmination of two years of construction and renovation projects with a Grand Opening Reception and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate the opening of our new North Tower!

Our $110 million dollar transformation project included the full renovation of our existing 800 guest room tower, refurbishing of our lobby, restaurants, health club, and 25,000sq ft conference center, but most importantly, added the 2nd tower with 460 more guestrooms including 2 premium suites with skyline views.  The new tower makes us the 4th largest hotel in Chicago! The completion of this project is a reason to celebrate, not only for the hotel’s employees and stake holders, but for the South Loop neighborhood and the entire city! This expansion is not just about hotel rooms.  It is step one in creating an entertainment campus at McCormick Place and growing convention business for the City of Chicago, which is why we were honored to welcome our state representatives, alderman, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to speak and cut the ribbon at our Grand Opening Celebration!

Mayor Emanuel spoke in length about his plans for the McCormick Place campus which include a 10,000 seat event center that will connect to McCormick Place via sky bridge.  The event center will serve as the home for DePaul University men’s and women’s basketball as well as a general session hall for trade shows and conventions and a venue for concerts and special events.  The Mayor’s development plans also include additional restaurants and entertainment to surround the event center and hotel.  Hear more about what the Mayor foresees by watching the full Ribbon Cutting Ceremony here.  The speeches start at 22:00 in the clip.

Our $110 million dollar guest room, meeting space, and lobby renovation and expansion is nearly complete!  Just our front drive and the new tower left to go!

Last week we reopened our StayFit Health Club and pool.  We are still waiting on the delivery of some more cardio machines.  When they arrive, we will actually have double the cardio machines that you see here pictured!  We know that keeping your fitness routine is important when on the go, so we want to help you get your work out in rather than be waiting for a machine to open up.  We are also just 2 blocks to the pedway at 18th st. which will take you across Lakeshore Drive to the Lakeshore Jogging Path.  Our concierge has running maps available to help you plan your course.

Prefer to bike outdoors?  There are bike rentals available right next door in McCormick Place Square for a nominal fee.
