Conrad Chicago, the 20-story luxury hotel located steps from Magnificent Mile, has opened its doors.
The redesign of former Draft FCB corporate office building into a smart, luxury hotel represents the dynamic vision of hotelier Laurence Geller, international design firm Pierre-Yves Rochon, and hospitality design firm Puccini Group.
The property features 287 guest rooms, including 24 suites with two expansive hospitality suites.
“The team at Conrad Chicago has worked tirelessly to create what will be a hotel that will truly inspire guests,” said Kelly Vohs, general manager, Conrad Chicago.
“In partnership with Geller Capital Partners and Wanxiang America Real Estate Group, we were presented with an opportunity to build a luxury hotel that appeals to today’s worldly traveller in a way that other hotels in the city don’t, or perhaps, can’t.
“The magic is our unique ability at Conrad Chicago to combine technology and design with team members who are committed to doing whatever it takes to make our guests’ stay memorable. We do that one interaction at time, every time.”
The hotel’s atmosphere exudes a modern and purposeful aesthetic, 10,000 square feet of conference and event facilities equipped with state-of-the-art technology, and three unique restaurants conceptualized by world-renowned chef Richard Sandoval: Baptiste & Bottle, Noyane, and Il Tavolino.
“We are excited to expand the Conrad Hotels & Resorts portfolio to include this property in Chicago, which will re-energise the city with its stunning design, innovative restaurants and smart guestrooms,” said John Vanderslice, global head, Conrad Hotels & Resorts.
“It is a testament to rapid growth of the Conrad brand, which now encompasses 31 properties worldwide and counting.”
