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.
