Gary Lee Partners, Studio K collaborate for Hyatt Centric The Loop Chicago

Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the opening of the 257-room, full-service Hyatt Centric The Loop Chicago, the first Hyatt Centric branded property to open worldwide. Hyatt Centric The Loop Chicago is owned by Integrated Clark Monroe, LLC and managed by Interstate Hotels & Resorts.

Hyatt Centric The Loop Chicago is in a 22-story, 1927 Art Deco office building designed by Frank Chase, located at 100 W. Monroe St. in downtown Chicago. The property underwent a transformative renovation into a new hotel while maintaining the integrity of the building’s roots and preserving its historical details. One feature of the property is the adaptive reuse of the original landowner and farmer Willard Jones’ cow path that was used to herd cattle – now it is a walkway that leads guests to the hotel’s rooftop bar.

Hyatt Centric The Loop Chicago has 257 rooms, with the lobbies, common areas and guest rooms designed by Chicago's Gary Lee Partners. Cochon Volant, a French brasserie, was designed by Chicago's Studio K.

The hotel features 2,513 square feet of meeting space with each conference room named for an influential figure in the Loop’s history, including industrialist Charles Yerkes; landowner Willard Jones; author Frank Norris; and sculptor Alvin Meyer.

The hotel offers guests multiple dining options, including a seasonal rooftop bar, AIRE, with contemporary and eclectic décor and panoramic views of the Chicago cityscape. It also features an upscale French bistro, Cochon Volant Bakery Brasserie and Bar.

The modern and urban guest rooms balance the energy of the city with a calm, inviting respite through minimal but upscale features, which include unique bathroom designs with private showers and water closet areas.

Located in the Loop neighborhood, the hotel is within walking distance of Millennium Park, the theater district and shopping in the heart of the dynamic Windy City.

Karen McGuigan serves as the general manager of Hyatt Centric The Loop Chicago.
