Warwick International Hotels purchases the Allerton Hotel, Chicago

Warwick International Hotels (WIH) completed the purchase of the Allerton Hotel, Chicago, Ill. The hotel was designated as a Chicago landmark in 199.

Built in 1924, the Allerton Hotel is located in the Magnificent Mile, Michigan Avenue. The Allerton Hotel will shortly be renamed the Warwick Allerton Hotel, Chicago. The hotel has 443 keys, including 59 suites. The original Tip Top Tap bar lounge has now been converted to a ballroom.

“The Allerton is close to being a perfect acquisition for WIH, she nicely complements its collection of landmark hotels, each one of which has her own particular history and story to tell”, said Richard Chiu, president of WIH. “This hotel is truly a sister hotel to the Warwick New York, which was built in 1926, the Warwick Melrose Hotel, Dallas built in 1924 and the Warwick San Francisco, built in 1913”, he added.
