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.

Virtual Event


Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.

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.
