CHICAGO—Hyatt The Loop Chicago, located in the city’s financial district, is on track to open in February 2015. The hotel, which is currently undergoing a renovation from a historic office building, will showcase elements of the area’s cultural and architectural past while offering guests a full range of modern amenities, according to the company.
When renovations are completed on the 22-story building, designed in 1927 by architect Frank Chase, it will feature 257 contemporary guestrooms, 2,540 sq. ft. of meeting space, a 24-hour fitness center, a new signature French restaurant: Cochon Volant Market, Bakery, Brasserie and Bar, and a rooftop bar.
“As the birthplace of the modern skyscraper, Chicago’s Loop has long been one of the world’s most dynamic and distinctive urban neighborhoods,” said Karen McGuigan, general manager, Hyatt The Loop Chicago. “This historical context has played a significant role in the development of the hotel and will remain an inspiration for its future. We are even keeping the cow path—used by the original landowner when the area was pastureland instead of skyscrapers—right next to the front entrance of the hotel.”
The new hotel’s central location gives guests access to cultural landmarks including the Art Institute of Chicago, Grant Park, Shedd Aquarium, Navy Pier, Millennium Park and the Museum of Science and Industry.
Hyatt The Loop Chicago is owned by Integrated Clark Monroe, LLC, and operated by Interstate Hotels and Resorts.
