Renaissance Chicago begins $8M, phase II renovations

Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel is beginning its second phase of renovations October 2015. Set to be completed by March 2016, Phase II will include the addition of a new ballroom with views of the Chicago River, an additional 4,000 square feet of meeting space and a new bar with city views. The $8-million renovation will include a new terrace bar and new event space, Urban Blue.

The hotel is also refreshing the junior ballroom space, Cloud Gate Ballroom, increasing the space from 4,000 square feet to 5,000-square-feet. As a continuation of the art design on the first floor, the third floor breakout rooms will be renamed Adler, Lyric, and Improv – all paying homage to historical landmarks and art in Chicago.
