Chicago Marriott Lincolnshire Resort eyes mid-2017 reopening following Gettys-led $22M transformation

The property will introduce two new restaurants, add a full-service Starbucks Café, new spa, and renovate all of the resort guestrooms

Chicago Marriott Lincolnshire Resort is scheduled to reopen in the second half of 2017 following a $22-million renovation that will update nearly every aspect of the resort. 

The renovated hotel will have two new restaurants, a full-service Starbucks Café, a new spa, and updated guestrooms. The Gettys Group is leading the redesign of the property managed by The Bricton Group and home of the Marriott Theatre.

One of the major changes will be the complete overhaul of the King’s Wharf restaurant space.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Upon completion of the renovation, the Chicago Marriott Lincolnshire Resort will have a Marriott Greatroom lobby with contemporary décor and a layout that lets guests work or relax. The property will also have Marriott’s latest M Club Lounge, an area just off the lobby for Elite and Club paying members.

Led by executive chef Pierre Daval, two new restaurant concepts will be announced in the spring of 2017. The new restaurants are expected to use locally sourced products.

All guestrooms will receive a top-to-bottom makeover. The upgraded look will include locally inspired accents to offer a sense of place and connection to the resort's location. Marriott’s new design will also include platform beds to align with seating; contemporary wall graphics with jade and teal schemes; seating to cater to various guest activities (working, relaxing or eating); and flexible work spaces. In most king-bed accommodations, bathtubs will be replaced with walk-in showers and spa-like lighting.

The porte cochère, front entrance of the resort, will be completely removed and modernized. Upon completion, it will have a sky-lit structure.
