    Hilton along with First Hospitality Group, Inc. has announced the opening of its latest hotel, the company’s first tri-branded property, which includes Hilton Garden Inn Chicago McCormick Place, Hampton Inn by Hilton Chicago McCormick Place and Home2 Suites by Hilton Chicago McCormick Place.

    Connected to McCormick Place, North America’s largest convention center, and adjacent to Wintrust Arena, the property is described by the hotel group as a “one-of-kind addition to downtown Chicago’s South Loop and Motor Row District lodging offerings”.

    Construction of the project was led by McHugh/UJAMAA LLC, a joint venture between James McHugh Construction Co. and minority-owned contractor UJAMAA Construction Inc., and Merritt Development Group. Antunovich Associates served as the building architect, Todd Halamka + Partners as the hotel architect, while Looney Associates led the interior design.

    This tri-branded hotel will serve as a convenient ‘one-stop-shop’ for convention-goers looking to rest and recharge or enjoy the local flavors of Chicago while remaining just steps from their convention events

    “Hilton is passionate about delivering exceptional travel experiences and continually looking for opportunities to add value for our guests,” said Bill Duncan, Global Head, All Suites and Focused Service Category, Hilton. “This milestone tri-brand property embodies that spirit. Bringing together these three category-leading brands and their signature, yet distinct, offerings under one roof provides travelers with a wealth of shared amenities, and the opportunity to enjoy the warmth and hospitality of Hilton through an innovative lodging option that fits a variety of travel needs and desired price points.”

    Managed by FHG, the 23-storey hotel boasts 184 Hilton Garden Inn rooms, 187 Hampton Inn rooms and 95 suites within the Home2 Suites, as well as a skybridge providing guests with convenient access to McCormick Place.

    “We are thrilled to bring three powerhouse hotel brands, as well as inventive new dining concepts to the continuously-evolving landscape of McCormick Place and the Motor Row District,” said First Hospitality Group, Inc. Founder and Chairman, Stephen Schwartz. “This tri-branded hotel will serve as a convenient ‘one-stop-shop’ for convention-goers looking to rest and recharge or enjoy the local flavors of Chicago while remaining just steps from their convention events. It is also a great option for guests traveling with larger groups or extended families, as everyone can stay under one roof despite having varied preferences on room-type and price-point.”

    Hilton currently has a footprint of more than 85 open, multi-brand properties, with an even larger pipeline of multi-brand projects in development around the globe.
