Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market – the area’s newest hotel where visitors can stay and play has opened its doors.
Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market is located between the City’s West Loop, one of Chicago’s fastest growing neighbourhoods, and Fulton Market, a hub for corporate campuses including Google’s Midwest hub and McDonald’s new global headquarters.
Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market, the first Hyatt House hotel to open inside Chicago’s city limits, rises 14 storeys and includes 200 rooms, 67 of which are suites, plus a wide array of amenities and conveniences targeted primarily to business travellers.
The hotel is not just a place to fall into bed after a long day of meetings, but an actual home away from home that offers guests the opportunity to experience Chicago’s unique culture through world-class dining, nightlife, shopping, and more.
“Chicago continues to experience record-breaking tourism, and we are confident Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market will bring a new and dynamic guest experience to the marketplace, and is a great example of our continued focus on growing premium hotels that will attract business and leisure travellers alike,” said Ripton Melhado, vice president of Operational Strategy, Hyatt Place and Hyatt House, Americas.
“I want to offer my congratulations and thanks to the teams at Wheelock Street Capital, McKibbon Hospitality, Sterling Bay, Eckenhoff Saunders, and Skender, who collaborated with us in order to bring this development to fruition.”
Guests have the option to book rooms and suites that include a full kitchen with ingredients available in the 24-Hour Market downstairs.
If cooking is not part of the plan, the hotel is steps away from Randolph Street, Chicago’s renowned “Restaurant Row,” with its bounty of chic eateries, bars, coffee shops, intimate venues and locally owned shops.
The hotel is less than three miles away from the Loop’s theaters, museums, Navy Pier, and the Magnificent Mile. Google’s Chicago headquarters is an eight-minute walk. The city’s Union Park is a few short blocks away.
The Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market showcases an abundance of features, including the top-floor indoor pool and Sky Deck offering unparalleled views of the downtown Chicago skyline.
The H BAR, the hotel’s lobby bar, beckons guests to unwind after a day of work, play or sightseeing.
They can sip a craft cocktail, wine or beer, and enjoy some conversation at the H Bar. Come morning they can get the day underway with a hearty complimentary breakfast. They can grab snacks and drinks 24/7 at the H Market and get a workout in at the 24-hour fitness centre.
Should the need to host a business gathering arise, Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market provides an ample amount of flexible meeting space. And, in keeping with a nationwide trend, the hotel accommodates pets.
Three Chicago powerhouses were involved in the hotel project: developer Sterling Bay, architects Eckenhoff Saunders, and top construction firm Skender, whose headquarters are just blocks away from the hotel.
With the opening Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market, Sterling Bay continues to make a significant impact on the transformation of the greater West Loop neighbourhood.
“Sterling Bay is proud to have teamed up with Hyatt on bringing its first Hyatt House property to the City of Chicago,” says Andy Gloor, managing principal.
“The West Loop-Fulton Market area has become a world-class business destination attracting thousands of corporate travellers each year, and we’re confident Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market will set the City’s new gold standard for high-end extended stay accommodations.”
