CHICAGO—Hyatt The Loop Chicago, located in the heart of the city’s financial district, is on track to open its doors to the public in February 2015. The hotel, which is currently undergoing a transformative renovation from a historic office building, will showcase elements of the area’s rich cultural and architectural past while offering guests a full range of modern amenities.
When renovations are completed on the 22-story building, designed in 1927 by architect Frank Chase, it will feature 257 contemporary guestrooms, 2,540 square feet of meeting space, a 24-hour fitness center, a new signature French restaurant: Cochon Volant Market, Bakery, Brasserie and Bar, and a rooftop bar—all while maintaining the integrity of the building’s historic roots.
“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.”
Hyatt The Loop Chicago is owned by Integrated Clark Monroe LLC and operated by Interstate Hotels and Resorts. The new hotel will join five Hyatt-branded hotels in downtown Chicago, including Park Hyatt Chicago, Hyatt Regency Chicago, Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile, and Hyatt Place Chicago/River North.
