Canopy by Hilton Chicago Loop Set To Open Autumn 2018
Canopy by Hilton, Hilton’s new lifestyle hotel brand, and RCP Holdings, LLC, an affiliate of The Prime Group, Inc., has unveiled plans to develop a Canopy by Hilton in Chicago. The 223-room Canopy property will reside at the southwest corner of South LaSalle Street and West Adams Street in Chicago’s Loop neighborhood.
Slated to open in Autumn 2018, at 208 S. LaSalle, Canopy by Hilton Chicago Loop was designed as a natural extension of Chicago’s downtown neighborhood with local design influences and natural materials used throughout the hotel’s architecture and interiors. The hotel’s entrance will be on La Salle Street with its reception area, restaurant, bar, and Canopy Central lobby located on the 20th level. The hotel also will feature a fitness centre, a day transfer lounge, 4,000 square feet of meeting space, and a rooftop terrace and bar.
“We are delighted to bring the Canopy by Hilton brand to the thriving Loop neighbourhood, in the heart of the financial district,” said Michael W. Reschke, Chairman and CEO of The Prime Group. “With convenient proximity to Chicago’s central business district, dining, shopping, the theater district, and Canopy’s dedication to comfort and service, our Canopy by Hilton hotel will be a natural choice for both business and leisure travellers looking for a true Chicago experience.”
The Canopy by Hilton Chicago Loop will be a conversion of the top four floors of the historic landmarked building by Daniel Burnham at 208 S. LaSalle, which also houses the new 610-key JW Marriott with its entrance at 161 W. Adams. Canopy’s room will be spacious with an average of 480 square feet, wood floors, 60” HDTVS and large bathrooms with walk-in showers and private toilet compartments, as well as many one and two-bedroom corner suites.
“We’re looking forward to extending a warm welcome to the Loop neighborhood,” said Gary Steffen, global head, Canopy by Hilton. “The Windy City is an exceptional destination with rich history, outstanding culinary offerings and so much for visitors to explore; we look forward to Canopy giving energetic and adventurous travellers an authentic neighbourhood experience.”
As with all Canopy hotels, Canopy by Hilton-Chicago Loop will complement the eclectic personality of the downtown neighbourhood by appealing to travellers looking for a unique and upper-upscale experience. Canopy by Hilton blends into the neighbourhood by featuring artwork from local artists, serving traditional and locally-sourced food and drink, and offering destination-specific welcome gifts.
