Marcus Hotels & Resorts, a division of The Marcus Corporation, assumed management of the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg, Chicago this month. The 468-room hotel, located about 30 miles northwest of downtown Chicago and about 15 miles from Chicago O’Hare International Airport, finished a $15 million renovation in 2018.

Last year’s improvements redesigned rooms and suites, adding contemporary décor. The hotel features an outdoor and heated indoor pool, a 24-hour gym, a 24-hour business center and complimentary shuttle service to and from Woodfield Mall and major nearby businesses. The property also includes more 30,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, along with a bar and a restaurant.

Marcus Hotels & Resorts owns and/or manages more than 20 hotels and resorts in the United States. The Hyatt Regency marks the group’s first Hyatt property and its second hotel in Illinois, the AC Hotel Chicago Downtown being the other.
