Hotel Chicago presents the West Loop/Illinois Medical District with a new lodging option destined to shake up Chicago’s boutique hotel market. Now open, the 117-room independent marks the entry into the hotel business by financier Joe Perillo, owner of Perillo Auto Group – a name synonymous with quality in Chicago for four decades.
Joining Mr. Perillo to manage and operate the property is Helmut Horn, President of Portfolio Hotels & Resorts and a pioneer in the boutique hotel industry. Located at 1622 W. Jackson, the renovated historic building is conveniently situated in between the Illinois Medical District and red hot Randolph Street dining corridor.
Void of heavy competition in the vicinity, Hotel Chicago provides a needed overnight option for hospital visitors, students, or savvy travellers looking for a “launch pad” to enjoy a night on the town.
“When we began this project over three years ago, our intention was to create a cross-generational home away from home for families with loved ones nearby at the hospital,” said Mr. Perillo, who’s luxury dealerships include lines like Bentley, Lamborghini, Bugatti, Rolls Royce, Maserati and BMW. “Since then, the growth of the West Loop has caused us to slightly adjust our strategy. We ended up fashioning a European boutique hotel, with all the amenities of an extended stay mini apartment, in order to appeal to savvy travellers.”
A unique and simplistic design mixed with comfort, convenience and value are the pillars in which Hotel Chicago stands upon. The property features a multitude of rooms to fit every guest, whether they’re here for a week in the doctor’s office or some fun in the city.
Room types include a single full, a bunk double twin, and a king deluxe, with amenities like: luxurious pillow top memory foam mattress, personal Keurig, refrigerator, microwave, LCD TV with cable, ample closet space and cabinetry, sizable work area, complimentary Wi-Fi, 24-hour fitness center, complimentary coffee, in-room safe, on-site washing machines, and a private parking lot with a local garage.
