Designed as an upscale, four-diamond boutique property and engineered to achieve LEED Silver certification, Sophy Hyde Park is a brand new 98-room hotel in Chicago’s historic Hyde Park neighborhood. Sophy is easily accessible and centrally located near the University of Chicago campus and Medical Center, the many boutique retail and restaurant locations along 53rd Street Corridor in downtown Hyde Park, as well as the future site of the Barack Obama Presidential Library. Sophy is proud to be a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Lifestyle Collection.
Sophy was designed to be distinctly Hyde Park and features a bar, full-service restaurant (Mesler – meaning to mix and mingle) as well as a spacious 2,000 square foot outdoor sanctuary ideal for al fresco style dining. The name “Sophy” is rooted in the Greek word “sophia,” meaning wisdom and dedication to excellence through the pursuit of knowledge. It was inspired by the rich legacy of intellectual, artistic and cultural innovation that is part of the fabric of the University of Chicago and greater Hyde Park. Gospel music, science, mathematics, art and literature are the themes that inform the hotel’s interior design. Sophy features artwork from contemporary Chicago artists and design elements inspired by the World’s Columbian Exposition, including barn doors in the private dining space that use circular elements to suggest the world’s first Ferris Wheel, which debuted at the fair.
Sophy is now accepting individual reservations and group requests – we hope to have the pleasure of seeing you soon. Please visit www.SophyHotel.com for more information.
