Studio K and Stantec collaborate on Chicago’s Hotel Zachary

Marriott International's Tribute Portfolio soft brand and Hickory Street Capital have opened Hotel Zachary in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood.

The seven-story, 238,000-square-foot property, adjacent to historic Wrigley Field, was built by Walsh Construction and stretches across a full block.

The design of the hotel pays homage to its namesake, Zachary Taylor Davis, the Chicago architect who designed Wrigley Field in 1914. Hickory Street Capital, owner of Hotel Zachary, worked with Davis' family for the development of the property.

Stantec Architecture and Studio K Creative were involved in the design. Walsh was the general contractor.

Hotel Zachary has 173 guestrooms, including 20 suites, all designed by Stantec Architecture. The color palette includes blue accents. Giving nods to baseball and the surrounding neighborhood, the rooms have an ivy-green headboard, pinstripe carpet, custom paneled armoire, traditional leather wing chair and an art program. All rooms and suites have floor-to-ceiling windows.

The Wrigley Suites has a gentleman’s chest and bar set up with a private balcony, and the Marquee Suites have a residential layout with a separate lounge and dining room that offer views of the Wrigley Field Marquee and Chicago skyline.

Food and beverage concepts within the hotel include The Bar at Hotel Zachary and Alma Room, both located on the second floor. There are also communal tables and outdoor patios.

A main focal wall features Davis’ original sketch of Wrigley Field, while the rest of the space is completed with found pieces, custom artwork, family photos, and Davis’ original blueprints and sketches.

The hotel is managed by Pivot Hotels & Resorts.
