Once known as the bustling headquarters of the iconic Chicago and North Western Railway, the historic revival-style building will soon be expanded with the creation of the double-branded Canopy by Hilton Chicago Central Loop (Canopy Chicago) and Hilton Garden Inn Chicago Central Loop (HGI Central Loop). The stunning new property is expected to open in late summer. The 117-year-old building at 226 W. Jackson will feature 350 guest rooms and suites between the two properties, plus food and beverage options for each – Depot 226 and Garden Central – both crafting locally inspired dishes and cocktails. In addition, guests of both accommodations will find an in-house fitness center, two unique event rooms and an outdoor terrace shared by both. Developed by Chicago-based Phoenix Development Partners and operated by Aimbridge Hospitality, the project is a much-welcomed beacon of hope for the Chicago travel industry. Canopy Chicago offers 215 guest rooms, including 23 spacious king suites, and 675 square feet of meeting space that can comfortably accommodate up to 48 guests. The modern boutique style concept is designed as a natural extension of the neighborhood, offering guests a variety of local experiences. Thanks to its prime location around the city, guests of the Canopy Chicago can use a free canopy bike stationed on the property and nearby attractions such as Millennium Park, the Art Institute of Chicago, the shops on State Street or explore the Chicago Riverwalk for access to world-class entertainment and culture in minutes. HGI Central Loop will have 135 guest rooms to retreat to, including six king suites, each with separate living areas. Guests can start their day with a cooked-to-order breakfast or relax at the end of the day with small plates, handcrafted cocktails or craft beers. The 624 square meter conference space on site can accommodate up to 40 guests. The complex is also a prime destination for business travelers as it is in close proximity to many large corporate offices, co-working spaces such as Convene, social centers such as the Metropolitan Club, fine dining and award-winning entertainment.
