Using the Omni Chicago Hotel’s new ORION system, guests can now utilize a variety of services - from ordering fresh made soup and salad to valet and housekeeping requests - with just a few clicks.
As the second stop for the luxury brand’s continued rollout, the hotel has launched the service using their Wi-Fi connection blending technology and service to create a way for guests to electronically communicate with the hotel.
“With the launch of our new ORION technology, guests have instant access to a number of services from online room service to having their car brought around,” said Mike Magnelli, area managing director and general manager for the Omni Chicago Hotel. “It’s our way of giving guests another way to simply have their needs quickly fulfilled.”
The launch of the new service also served as an opportunity to spotlight the Omni Chicago and the 676 Restaurant & Bar’s new menu featuring products from a variety of local food and beverage producers, organic and gluten-free items and special items for younger guests. Executive Chef Daven Wardynski created the new menu as part of his commitment to supporting foods from the Midwest.
New breakfast choices include Organic Strawberry Yogurt Muffins, Fresh Smoothies and the latest guest favorite—an Egg White & Wild Mushroom Frittata with Capriole Farm’s (Indiana) Goat Cheese and Oven-Dried Tomatoes. Lunch includes a Midwest Apple Salad (Michigan) with Arugula, Wisconsin Parmesan and a Honey Vinaigrette and Tomato & Michigan White Bean Soup with Shiitake Mushrooms and White Truffles. For dinner, guests can order items such as Prince Edward Island Mussels with Goose Island Matilda Beer (Chicago) as well as larger entrees such as Compart Family Farm’s (Minnesota) Duroc Pork Loin with Grilled Red Bliss Potatoes, Shaved Asparagus Salad and a Wild Mushroom Chimichurri. Not to be missed is the restaurant’s children and baby menus. For foodies under one, Chef Wardynski personally prepares puree including local peach, Michigan apple and butternut squash. For older children, Omni has updated the typical offerings and now features Grilled Chicken Tenders, Sweet Potato Fries and Macaroni with Carrot-Cheese Sauce.
