Hyatt House Chicago/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.
