In a northwestern suburb of the Windy City, the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg has completed a revitalization project that updated the property’s check-in/check-out, meeting spaces and lobby with a Great Room.

The balance of nature and industry inspired the hotel’s redesign, so that throughout the property, widely used are materials such as concrete, velvet, red oak wood and hickory. Also in use are softer textures and natural materials with platform space dividers, illuminated screen walls, vertical and horizontal partitions, interior framing windows and niche seating.

The design, created by Kraig Kalashian Architecture & Design, draws further from nature with accents of blues and grays.
