The renovation included the replacement of the existing toilet partitions, floor and wall tiles, vanities, mirrors, lighting and accessories.

Cicero's Development Corporation, a general contractor specializing in the hospitality sector, completed the renovation of two public restrooms at The Drake Hotel in Chicago. The men's and women's restrooms, which service those attending special events in the hotel's French Room, received a refresh with the same historic look.

The Drake Hotel, an ornamented classical building constructed in the Beaux-Arts style of architecture in 1920, is a member of Historic Hotels of America.

The project scope encompassed a complete demolition and replacement of the existing toilet partitions, floor and wall tiles, vanities, mirrors, lighting and accessories. Plumbing and electrical fixtures were also upgraded. The new design introduced elements that are modern yet rooted in the historical design of The Drake Chicago.
