US: The Prime Group, Inc. and Aimbridge Hospitality will open The LaSalle Hotel in Chicago’s financial district in early February next year.
Designed by DiLeonardo International and Chipman Design Architecture, the hotel includes 232 rooms and suites, a restaurant and lounge, a library and solarium, a fitness centre, and over 7,500 square feet of ballroom and meeting space.
The LaSalle Hotel will occupy the top five floors of 208 South LaSalle, adjacent to the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. It has been developed by The Prime Group, Inc which has developed, redeveloped and acquired over $12 billion of commercial and residential real estate.
Michael Reschke, chairman and CEO of The Prime Group said: “We know that both business and leisure travellers coming to Chicago continue to look for the best hotels to gather and stay. The LaSalle Hotel will offer our guests a true luxury experience at every turn, from a central downtown location that makes it easy to traverse the city to bespoke accommodations, food and beverage, and concierge services that make every stay extraordinary.”
The hotel will form part of the Autograph Collection by Marriott, which has over 200 independent hotels in more than 30 countries.
“We are excited to bring the sophistication and luxury of the original LaSalle Hotel back to the centre of Chicago’s financial district,” said general manager Stefan Gruvberger. “Our guests will have access to all the best that Chicago has to offer within minutes of our front door. We look forward to helping guests explore this amazing city and create unforgettable memories.”
