The Swissôtel Chicago has completed a $10 million renovation of its lobby and classic meeting space. Construction began in December 2011.
Check-in pods replaced the traditional bulky hotel front desk and the lobby received a design overhaul. Also in the lobby, Amuse is the hotel’s latest food and beverage concept offering seasonal small and shareable plate options with signature cocktails and wine pairings for each.
The hotel’s 27,000 square feet of meeting space has been transformed to mimic the modern, monochromatic feel of the property’s 38,000-square-foot Event Centre.
Swissôtel Chicago will be the first property to provide meeting planners and attendees with Nervana’s Bonfire Events Management app. This application tracks schedules, flights, and presentations, connects guests via a social site and sends alerts for any changes in scheduling.
