The Gwen, a Luxury Collection Hotel, announced the completion of the hotel’s full renovation; revealing newly designed guest rooms, suites and public spaces. Paying homage to pioneer Chicago sculptor Gwen Lux, The Gwen’s new rooms and public spaces aim to provide an elegant art deco guest experience.
“The Gwen takes guests back to the golden era of travel in Chicago,” said Director of Sales and Marketing, Marcus Cornelious. “Our new rooms add a new inviting and distinctive element.”
With 311 guest rooms and 34 suites, there’s one suite in particular that makes a stay at The Gwen especially memorable. The “masterpiece” of the renovation is the Gwen Lux Suite which sits high atop the hotel overlooking Michigan Ave. This suite includes one of the largest private outdoor terraces in all of Chicago (1,100 square feet) for guests to take in both, the magnificent city skyline and serene lakefront views. The hotel expects the suite to be booked regularly for business retreats and more.
Adding to the hotel’s city-centric elegance are the property’s two dining concepts: the Upstairs at the Gwen, the fifth-floor outdoor terrace with fire features and sweeping views of the city; and the Gwen’s Circa Lounge, offering all-day dining and weekly musical programming. Guests looking to explore the retailers of the neighboring Shops at North Bridge have easy access via an indoor walkway.
The Gwen also caters to business and corporate event travelers looking for a posh big city retreat. Located in the heart of Chicago off Michigan Ave., the four-star hotel encompasses more than 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting spaces while providing high quality service from its staff.
