Hampton Inn & Suites – Downtown Chicago re-opens

CHICAGO — First Hospitality Group announced the grand re-opening of the Hampton Inn & Suites – Downtown Chicago, following a $4 million renovation to the property.

The revitalized Hampton Inn & Suites – Downtown Chicago will feature an updated lobby and modern colors and artwork. The stylish and comfortable guest rooms were each updated with new carpet, lighting, tables, sinks, Cloud Nine beds and a 42-inch flat screen TV. Guest suites will include all new mini refrigerators and microwaves. Guests will have access to an indoor swimming pool, updated state-of-the-art fitness facility, complimentary breakfast, a business center, and a new suite shop, filled with Chicago memorabilia. The hotel also offers guests access to a revamped 5,000-square-foot meeting center.

The grand re-opening kicked off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on November 10, 2010 in front of the new 24-foot mural in the hotel’s lobby. The event also honored the United Service Organization, a nonprofit organization providing morale and recreational services to members of the U.S. Military. Several service men and women were present to receive a $500 donation on behalf of the hotel.

The 230-room hotel is located at 33 West Illinois St. in downtown Chicago’s River North District. With a central location to some of downtown’s most popular hot spots, the hotel will play host to shoppers, business and leisure travelers.
