Hyatt Will Take Over the Wyndham Chicago on June 1
There's even MORE news coming out of Chicago. First, we learned theWit was on the verge of opening up an awesome new retractable roof. Then we found out the Affinia Chicago was out and the MileNorth Hotel was in (and with free WiFi too!).
Now we hear that the Wyndham Chicago was bought by Sunstone Hotel Investors Inc. who have brought on Hyatt to rebrand the property a The Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the 416-room hotel on North St. Clair will officially turn into a Hyatt on June 1. A $25 million renovation will also happen later this year.
With the addition of this new hotel, Hyatt lovers visiting Chicago will now have a proper tourist-oriented hotel to stay at. Previously, they had to choose between convention hotels like the Hyatt Regency Chicago and the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place or the super luxe Park Hyatt. Still, is it wrong that we wish they would have rebranded the hotel as an Andaz?
For now, the hotel is still a Wyndham and there's a 48-hour sale going on where rooms are 20 percent off at $160 a night for next weekend.
