The Gwen, a Luxury Collection Hotel, completed the hotel’s full renovation that included newly designed guestrooms, suites and public spaces. Paying homage to Chicago sculptor Gwen Lux, The Gwen’s new rooms and public spaces have Art Deco elements, celebrating 1930s Chicago.
The hotel’s guestrooms and public spaces were conceptualized and designed by Simeone Deary Design Group, completing The Gwen’s design and service transformation into a Luxury Collection Hotel.
The renovation of the guestrooms included a mink-grey color palette accented with a Gwen Lux design above the headboard, living space and beds lined with Frette linens. In addition, all king-bed rooms come standard with a soaking tub and adjacent glass-enclosed steam shower.
The property now has 311 guestrooms and 34 suites. The Gwen Lux Suite, which overlooks Michigan Ave., is the “masterpiece” of the renovation, with one of the largest private outdoor terraces in Chicago at 1,100 square feet, offering views of the city skyline and the lakefront.
The Gwen also has a gym with new cardio and strength machines and multiple TV screens.
For dining, the property has two dining venues: Upstairs at the Gwen, a fifth-floor outdoor terrace with fire features and views of the city; and Gwen’s Circa Lounge.
Meanwhile, for events, The Gwen has over 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting spaces.
