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.
As part of the hotel’s lobby, Chicago Marriott Schaumburg’s Great Room has more than 300 seats, a full-service bar and a restaurant led by executive chef William Delby.
Chicago Marriott Schaumburg also remodeled the indoor and outdoor pools, and restaurant and bar; and added new guestrooms and a health club. The hotel has over 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space, able to accommodate up to 1,000 people.
The property is located in the heart of Schaumburg, near Hoffman Estates and Itasca and minutes from O’Hare International Airport and downtown Chicago. Andreo Girardi is the general manager of the hotel.
