Hotel Indigo plans for its third hotel in the Chicago market. The hotel, which will be located in the historic downtown area’s Atlantic Bank Building, is expected to open in spring 2014.
The Hotel Indigo Chicago-Millenium Park hotel, located at 168 N. Michigan Ave., will undergo an estimated $20 million renovation by the ownership and will occupy a 101-year-old building that first opened in 1912 as the Federal Life Building. The 156-room hotel will feature design elements that reflect its local neighborhood just north of Millennium Park within Chicago’s central business district.
As part of the extensive renovations, the hotel will add four floors to the building -- bringing the total to 16 stories – housing a rooftop bar, and a restaurant managed by celebrity chef David Burke. The hotel will maintain many of its historic features, including the original white enamel terra cotta exterior, while including the benefits and amenities guests expect from staying with a brand from one of the world’s largest global hotel companies.Set in the heart of Chicago’s vibrant business district, and within walking distance to many of Chicago’s best restaurants, shopping and theater districts, the Hotel Indigo Chicago-Millenium Park hotel will be conveniently located just steps from the Jay Pritzker Pavilion and Millenium Park. The hotel will also be in close proximity to the Magnificent Mile, Grant Park, the Art Institute of Chicago and numerous corporate offices. Within a mile of Interstates 90, 94 and 290, as well as U.S. Highway 41, the Hotel Indigo Chicago-Millenium Park hotel will be served by several bus and train stops and will be close to the Chicago Cultural Center, one of the city’s most popular sites for fundraisers, concerts and other special events.
