Lincolnshire Marriott Resort to begin renovation

The Lincolnshire Marriott Resort has been a prime resort and events space in Chicagland for over 35 years. On March 1, the resort will break ground on its renovation project, completely redoing the lobby and upgrading many of the resort’s most famous and popular features, including ballroom and meeting space renovations and creating an M.I. Greatroom.

“We’ve been planning for this project for some time now, and we couldn’t be more excited to show all of our guests and planners what’s in store,” says Lincolnshire Marriott Resort General Manager Hassan El Neklawy. “This renovation will change the entire dynamic of the hotel. We’re venturing into new territory, and we’re inviting our long-time friends and new guest to join us on the journey.”

The renovation will focus largely on converting the lobby and lounge into the famous M.I. Greatroom. This room concept is designed for business travelers to transition and mix work, relaxation and socializing throughout the day and evening with several zones set up throughout the Greatroom. The Social Zone features comfortable chairs situated together in front of a media wall where guests can order small plates and socialize. The Individual Zone features several work pods to give guests the privacy and quiet to tackle unfinished business. The Greatroom will also feature a day-and-night bar providing coffee, cocktails and other beverages to suit guests’ needs.

In addition to the Great Room renovations, the resort’s 10,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom will receive all new carpeting, lighting and furniture. Guest rooms will also be upgraded to include flat panel TVs and plug-in technology.
