CHICAGO—Chicago’s River North neighborhood has continued its expansion to appeal to tourists with three new hotel concepts: Aloft Chicago City Center, Fairfield Inn & Suites Chicago Downtown/River North and Hyatt Place Chicago/River North.
In addition, a new Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises concept, Beatrix, which will open June 20, 2013. The neighborhood restaurant and coffee house features cuisine inspired by foods made in Lettuce’s test kitchen and will be open for all meals of the day.
The new triplex is a product of a partnership between real estate developers Friedman Properties and White Lodging, hotel brands Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Marriott International, and Hyatt, and Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises. White Lodging will manage the three hotel properties.
