Hilton to Open First Triple-Branded Hotel
- Jan 30, 2017
Chicago—Hilton recently announced a partnership with First Hospitality Group for the opening of the company’s first triple-brand hotel, bringing together the Garden Inn, Hampton Inn and Home2 Suites flags. The new hotel will be located next to North America’s largest convention center, McCormick Place in Chicago.
Located at 123 E. Cermak Road, the triple-branded property will encompass approximately 379,000 square feet over 23 floors and a collective 466 guest rooms and suites. The project is expected to bring nearly 350 full-time jobs and more than 600 construction jobs to the local community. The property is slated to open doors in late 2018.
Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton McCormick Center will have three district lobbies and dining areas and will share common amenities including a fitness room, a business room, indoor pool, and six rooms of extensive meeting space totaling approximately 7,000 square feet.
The property will feature a variety of dining options, including a rooftop dining lounge totaling approximately 9,500 square feet on the 22nd floor, two street-level restaurants—one upscale American/Italian and one bar/tavern—and a full Starbucks coffee shop accessible from Cermak Road.
FHG will own and manage hotel, at the same time managing the onsite Starbucks. McHugh/UJAMAA LLC, a partnership between James McHugh Construction Co. and UJAMAA Construction Inc., will serve as the general contractor for the project, with Antunovich Associates serving as the building architect, Todd Halamka + Partners as architect and Looney Associates as interior designer.
