Soho House's Chicago hotel will officially open in August 2014 and is now taking room reservations. The Fulton Market District hotel and private members' club will have 40 guest rooms and three public restaurants.
Slated to open in 2015, the Loews Chicago Hotel will offer 400 guest rooms and suites, as well as more than 25,000 square feet of modern meeting space, among other amenities. This past May, the hotel also joined the ALHI, which will provide support, expertise and sales services to meeting professionals, business executives, and others planning functions at the Loews Chicago Hotel.
As part of the brand's plan to reinvigorate its North American portfolio, W Hotels recently announced the second phase of renovation projects to its hotels in key markets, including W Chicago Lakeshore.
Debuting in June 2014, Lakeshore's full scale, top-to-bottom renovation by Meyer Davis Design is a nod to the hotel's location and the manner in which it reflects the energy of the city onto the glittering waters of Lake Michigan. The entire hotel will be redesigned, inside and out, including all 520 guest rooms and suites, corridors, and building exterior. All public spaces including The Living Room, meeting space, and Altitude (event space with 360 degree views of the city), will be completely reimagined. Current, a new beverage and food experience, by Cornerstone Restaurant Group is now open.
Renovations to Navy Pier as part of the Centennial Vision planning framework adopted in 2011 have stopped until Labor Day 2014. Summer events and other functions will once again go uninterrupted by construction.
