Grupo Habita to open two properties in Chicago

The Robey, Hollander to debut as Grupo Habita’s newest US locations.

Grupo Habita is launching two new properties in Chicago’s Wicker Park/Bucktown neighborhood this fall. Both the Robey and the Hollander will debut as the brand’s newest U.S. locations following the launch of the Hotel Americano in New York.

The Robey, designed by Brussels-based Nicolas Schuybroek Architects and Stekene, Belgium-based Marc Merckx Interiors, was inspired by the Art Deco style of its home, the Northwest Tower. All 69 guestrooms will have a contemporary aesthetic and 180-degree views of the city’s skyline. In addition to the onsite restaurant Café Robey, the hotel will also have a second-floor lounge and the rooftop lounge Up & Up. A rooftop pool and cabana club restaurant will open next spring.

Adjacent to the Robey will be the Hollander, located within the five-story Hollander Fireproof Warehouse. French design studios Ciguë and Delordinaire crafted the hotel, which has 66 beds, 12 private rooms and eight shared rooms, as well as a bar and café.
