CHICAGO—The Dow Hotel Company (DHC) has completed a $10-million renovation of the Embassy Suites by Hilton Chicago O’Hare Airport – Rosemont. The renovation focused on all aspects of the hotel, including guestrooms, public spaces and back-of-house areas.
“With the conclusion of this top-to-bottom renovation, the hotel has achieved ‘like-new’ status, making it competitive with any product on the market,” said Murray L. Dow II, founder and president, DHC. “In the last 19 years, DHC has overseen 20 renovations of similar scope. The property is positioned to provide experiential travel to upscale business and leisure guests who want something more than the typical big-box stay.”
Guestrooms received new soft goods, upholstered furniture and artwork. All guest baths gained new tiling, while some were converted to stand-up showers. Public spaces were completely redone, including alterations to the atrium, pool, fitness center, lobby, elevators and employee locker rooms. The business center was upgraded to Embassy Suites by Hilton’s Connectivity Zone with modern furniture. The two executive boardrooms received new tables, woodwork, refrigerators and televisions. Exterior hotel improvements range from building enhancements to completely redone landscaping.
The hotel has 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting and event space, including a 5,100-sq.-ft. ballroom that can accommodate up to 350 guests. Amenities include 22 conference rooms with connecting suites, a seven-story garden atrium, fitness center, indoor pool and complimentary shuttle service to and from O’Hare Airport.
Each of the hotel’s newly renovated, two-room suites has a private bedroom and a separate living room, including a full-sized sofa bed, workstation and ergonomic chair.
There is also an on-site restaurant and bar.
