Park Hyatt Chicago is a minimal hotel located in Chicago, Illinois, designed by Anderson/Miller Ltd. The iconic Park Hyatt Chicago has resumed operations, unveiling a stunning $60M redesign of guestrooms and public spaces. Founder Jay Pritzker imagined a one-of-a-kind retreat that embodied understated luxury and served as a home away from home for guests. The reopened property stays true to this original mission, offering highly personalized service, renowned art and design, and exceptional food and wine – all through a contemporary lens for today’s discerning traveler. The renewed sanctuary seamlessly blends a clear sense of place and culture, with 146 guestrooms and 36 spacious suites – including the introduction of several new suite categories and the addition of 23 new suites – a refreshed lobby design including updates to The Library, the hotel’s welcoming lounge space, a vibrant new art program spotlighting some of Chicago’s most talented creatives, updates to the hotel’s signature restaurant NoMI, and enhancements to the spa’s space and programs.
Acclaimed design firm Anderson/Miller Ltd. oversaw the completely reimagined guestrooms, redesigning everything from the fixtures and furniture to wall and floor coverings. The results are spaces enveloped in soft creams, camel accent tones, and layered textures, and filled with opulent amenities, giving them an intimate, residential feel rooted in luxury. In-room amenity and design features include an integrated media hub with an advanced tablet system for guest service communication and in-room dining; the Park Hyatt brand’s signature large format Le Labo® bath products; bathrooms with retractable doors for guests to relax in the oversized soaking tub while enjoying views of the city; triple-pane glass windows, which provide a quiet, serene guestroom experience and reduce energy by regulating room temperatures; and more. Additionally, a Wellbeing Suite will soon be introduced and equipped with cutting-edge exercise equipment for guests to train in the comfort of their own room.
In the public spaces, neutral tones and white marble accents serve as an elegant backdrop for vibrant artwork that is meant to be the focal point. Widely known for its commitment to building a dynamic private art collection, Park Hyatt Chicago worked closely with a variety of local artists and galleries to add new, inclusive, and meaningful works to its program. With this in mind, the property teamed up with local, woman-led design firm Sheedy DeLaRosa Interiors to curate art and photography by local, Chicago-based artists. Designed to evoke feelings of whimsy and engage travelers’ imaginations, the collection pays homage to Chicago as the city evolves. As part of the inaugural experience, the selection of contemporary and thought-provoking pieces that bring modern-day Chicago into the hotel include custom woven metal sculpture works from local artist Eric Gushee, among others.
