CHICAGO—Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile announced the completion of the hotel’s comprehensive, $25 million renovation. The hotel’s 419 guestrooms, meeting and banquet space, lobby, indoor pool, and fitness center have all received a refurbishment with new design and furnishings. As part of this transformation, the hotel introduces a new, signature restaurant, Level 2, featuring contemporary American cuisine.
“The feedback we have received from our guests and meeting planners has been overwhelmingly positive. While they love the renovations, the contemporary design and state-of-the-art amenities, I am most proud of the many positive comments we have received about our hotel staff,” said Doug Dean, general manager. “Our team of associates at Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile are the core of our success, and this magnificently transformed hotel will give them an opportunity to shine for our guests.”
Chicago-based Looney and Associates led the design effort. A completely reoriented check-in area greets guests, while a new restaurant, lounge, and casual zones, all redone with new furniture, art work, and flooring.
The newly added Escape Bar goes beyond a traditional hotel business center and includes space for informal small meetings, intimate social gatherings, or a place to check e-mail and enjoy a book from the hotel’s library. The Escape Bar features complimentary Wi-Fi, four iMac computers, two LCD HDTVs, and printers for boarding passes or documents.
Each of the hotel’s 419 guestrooms is styled with a contemporary palette and a diverse mix of textures. All rooms include new carpeting, wall coverings, drapery, oversized desks and entertainment centers, as well as the signature Hyatt Grand Bed. Room accessories include a stereo iPod docking station, Hyatt Plug Panel media center, 46” and 55” flat-screen Samsung televisions, HDTVs compact, in-room refrigerators, and in-room safes.
