Embassy Suites Chicago-Downtown Launches New Look

The 367-suite Embassy Suites Chicago-Downtown in Illinois has completed a $12.3 million renovation helmed by Denver-based Design Force.

“Chicago is a town with an incredible architectural heritage, which made this project all the more interesting and challenging,” said Roxanne Fancy, president, Design Force. “In addition to guest suite interiors, we installed new carpeting, wall coverings, contrasting paint on doors and light sconces in the guest corridors. All aspects of the renovation complement the bold and self-assured style for which Chicago is well known.”

“The renovation has enhanced the overall guest experience of this exceptionally located hotel,” said Patrick Lupsha, Davidson’s chief operating officer. “All guest suites were completely renovated, including new case goods, state-of-the-art workstations, carpeting, wall coverings, two flatscreen televisions per suite and bathrooms.”


Located at 600 North State Street, in the heart of downtown Chicago, the upscale, all-suite hotel is convenient to Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile, Loyola University, Navy Pier, American Girl Place, and Lincoln Park Zoo. The 11-story atrium hotel also is near Boeing Headquarters, City Hall and Chicago Board of Trade.

The Embassy Suites Chicago-Downtown features an indoor, heated swimming pool; two onsite dining options—Osteria Via Stato and Pizzeria Via Stato; 6,000 square feet of flexible meeting space that can accommodate groups ranging from 10 to 300; 24-hour business center; fully equipped fitness center; and Embassy’s hallmark complimentary, cooked-to-order breakfast and evening manager’s reception.


Guest suites offer one or two private bedrooms with contemporary furnishings, armoires, spacious living rooms, high speed wireless Internet access, 32” flat panel bedroom television, 40” flat panel suite television, and a state-of-the-art workstation.
