Hyatt Place Chicago
The Hyatt Place in downtown Chicago is a new focused service hotel with 206 guest rooms above an open ground floor lobby and lounge. The hotel includes meeting and entertainment rooms, a fitness center, and swimming pool. Located in the heart of the financial district of Chicago, this 18-story structure occupies a small 8,100 sf site. The lobby’s cantilevered awning, which reaches out to the adjacent plaza in front of Hyatt’s headquarters next door provides both a visual marker for the hotel and a clear orientation to the street. The design creates a memorable, urban-scale identity for the Hyatt brand.
