Hilton today announced the opening of its newest hotel, the company’s first tri-branded property, which includes Hilton Garden Inn Chicago McCormick Place, Hampton Inn by Hilton Chicago McCormick Place and Home2 Suites by Hilton Chicago McCormick Place. Connected to McCormick Place, North America’s largest convention center, and adjacent to Wintrust Arena, the property is a one-of-kind addition to downtown Chicago’s South Loop and Motor Row District lodging offerings. The hotel also represents Hilton’s first tri-branded property, furthering the company’s leadership position in the development of multi-brand hotels. Hilton currently has a footprint of more than 85 open, multi-brand properties, with an even larger pipeline of multi-brand projects in development around the globe.
Managed by FHG, the 23-story tri-branded hotel boasts 184 Hilton Garden Inn rooms, 187 Hampton Inn rooms and 95 suites within the Home2 Suites, as well as a skybridge providing guests with convenient access to McCormick Place. Along with each brands’ signature offerings aimed at ensuring comfort, convenience and productivity for their respective guests, the hotel also provides larger and enhanced communal areas and amenities than what would be standard at a standalone property. These include an expanded exercise room, indoor pool, 24-hour business center and 10 flexible event/meeting spaces totaling nearly 7,000 square feet, as well as a wealth of added food & beverage offerings.
In addition to the signature, complimentary breakfast offerings for guests of Hampton Inn and Home2 Suites, as well as the fresh cooked-to-order breakfasts by Hilton Garden Inn, the property has the following dining options that are open to all Windy City visitors and locals alike, including:
VU Skyward Bev & Eat: A rooftop dining and lounge experience operated by Concentrics Restaurants, scheduled to open this Fall, will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with locally-inspired small plates and craft cocktails amidst sweeping views of Lake Michigan and Downtown Chicago.
Fatpour Tapworks: A street-level pub and grill operated by Big Onion Tavern Group, also scheduled to open in the Fall, will feature an eclectic selection of menu items including more than 220 beers, all available in 22-ounce pours.
Starbucks coffee shop, which is now open, can be easily accessed by guests and locals from Cermak Road.
