An announcement was recently made by Loews Hotels & Resorts that a new property will soon be opened by the company in Chicago. The planned opening of the Loews Chicago Hotel is estimated to be January of 2015, and construction of the property should begin soon. The architectural firm that will be designing the hotel is Solomon Cordwell Buenz and a Chicago-based trading group called DRW will be responsible for the development process involved with getting the hotel up and running. DRW Trading Group’s founder and CEO has stated that, “The Loews Hotels brand will be an invaluable addition to the Chicago hotel market,” and that they “are thrilled to partner with Loews Hotels & Resorts to bring a unique experience to downtown Chicago.”
The Loews Chicago Hotel will not only include 25,000 square feet of meeting space that will feature an innovative design, but also 400 traditional guest rooms and 36 suites, as well as a signature onsite restaurant. The hotel will also boast a fitness center and spa, and a rooftop outdoor space, as well as a rooftop pool that overlooks the breathtaking city of Chicago. The rooftop views of the city are only one of the unique features that will characterize the Loews Chicago Hotel. Other guest rooms in the hotel will offer views of the lake and the hotel is only a short distance from the Chicago River, and the heart of the city itself is only a few blocks away, providing for a very convenient and exciting location for guests. Within the 52-story tower that will be the home of the future Loews Chicago Hotel will also be 390 luxury apartments as well, for those that wish to enjoy the luxury of the property on a more permanent basis.
Chairman of Loews Hotels & Resorts, Jonathan Tisch, has stated that, “The location, amenities and services will surpass expectations, making the Loews Chicago Hotel one of the most sought after hotels in the area.”
Although the construction on the hotel has not yet begun, and although the opening is still a few years away, it will not be long before the anticipation of the opening begins to build.
The addition of the Loews Chicago Hotel is only one step that Lowes is making towards adding to the company’s portfolio, which includes 18 hotels that are located in various parts of the United States and Canada. Each of the hotels already in the company’s portfolio offers one-of-a-kind accommodations and experiences, and the newest addition is expected to meet or exceed the standards that the company has set for itself.
If everything goes according to the planned schedule the Lowes Chicago Hotel will be completed just in time for 2015 travel, so visitors to Chicago can start the year off with a truly one-of-a-kind experience.Google+
