ITASCA, Illinois—Eaglewood Resort and Spa, located in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, has recently completed a two-month, $1.2 million renovation of its conference center. The makeover encompassed the facility’s meeting rooms and common areas, including new carpeting, wall vinyl, draperies and sheers, upholstery and furnishings, along with a technology upgrade to accommodate up to 100 Mbps of bandwidth. The colors, featuring warm and inviting earth tones, fall in line with Eaglewood’s trademark Prairie-style design, which is prominent throughout the entire resort and pays homage to architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
The Eaglewood project was designed by Moncur Design Associates Inc., based in Toronto. John Lee, Eaglewood’s director of facilities, and CRS, based in Canton, Georgia, which specializes in hotel renovations, oversaw the renovation.
“For the past 10 years, Eaglewood Resort has been one of Chicagoland’s top meeting destinations, welcoming more than 250,000 guests and meeting attendees from across the U.S.,” said Charles Reece, general manager of Eaglewood Resort and Spa. “We recognized the need to modernize the conference center, yet maintain the relaxed style our meeting guests have come to expect from the property. The newly renovated design accomplished both objectives.”
With more than 37,000 square feet, Eaglewood Resort and Spa is an IACC-certified space. The resort features 37 function rooms, ballroom and amphitheater, outdoor
terrace, and conference concierge.
