New Four Points in Chicago

Starwood Hotels announces the Four Points by Sheraton Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile, currently under construction in the Windy City just steps away from the desirable “Magnificent Mile,” the city’s premiere shopping and tourist district. The new hotel, the latest addition to Starwood’s moderately-priced brand, is situated at 630 N. Rush Street and will offer affordable and comfortable accommodations in a stellar location. The Four Points by Sheraton Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile is owned and operated by Marcus Hotels & Resorts and is scheduled to open in June 2005.
“We are thrilled about the choice location of our new hotel situated in the heart of one of Chicago’s most vibrant and energetic districts,” said Hoyt Harper, II, senior vice president, Four Points by Sheraton. “This new property will provide the brand with a major downtown presence in one of the country’s most important travel markets and will be a destination for both business and leisure travelers alike.”

Comfortable and contemporary, the 226-room hotel includes 130 suites and features striking artwork from renowned artist Dale Chihuly in the lobby, with a warm color palette of deep reds, ivory and gold, found in the public areas and guestrooms. Guests will enjoy a restful night in the comfort of the brand’s new signature Four Points by Sheraton Four Comfort Bed, a cozy cocoon designed to pamper guests. In addition to the stylish, plump, plaid duvet, the bed features a plush mattress and a welcoming quartet of pillows for relaxing that includes two feather/down sleeping pillows and two oversized lounging pillows. Additional bed components include a bed skirt, mattress pad, plush blanket, and a decorative pillow featuring the brand’s signature compass logo.

Guests can also take advantage of the hotel’s well-equipped fitness center, as well as the pristine sunroom-enclosed swimming pool with adjoining whirlpool and landscaped outdoor patio. The hotel will feature three food and beverage outlets that are scheduled to open in early 2006.
