Hyatt House Chicago
Chicago, Illinois (West Loop)
Featured in Hospitality Snapshots
One of Chicago’s most prolific real estate development firms, Sterling Bay, retained Eckenhoff Saunders for architecture and interior design services for the development of a 14-story, 167,000-square-foot Hyatt House in Chicago’s West Loop.
Conceived as a hospitality-retail mixed-use development, the hotel provides both traditional and extended-stay rooms with efficiency kitchens. Among the amenities are a fitness center, swimming pool, and exterior rooftop deck with sweeping views of Chicago’s skyline. Street-level retail supports this neighborhood’s vibrant street life. A level of valet parking separates retail from the third-floor hotel “Sky Lobby.”
Entering the third-floor lobby, guests are greeted by the reception area featuring dark finishes, custom lacquered steel, exposed brick/rebar, and reclaimed wood elements. A large radius chandelier accentuates the lobby space, and a slatted felt ceiling gives a distinct look and feel in a clean and contemporary design.
