“With the conclusion of this top-to-bottom renovation, the hotel has achieved ‘like-new’ status, making it competitive with any product on the market,” said Murray L. Dow II, founder and president, DHC. “In the last 19 years, DHC has overseen 20 renovations of similar scope. The property is positioned to provide experiential travel to upscale business and leisure guests who want something [atypical].”
The renovation enhanced virtually all aspects of the hotel. Guest rooms received fresh soft goods, upholstered furniture and artwork. All guest baths gained new tiling, while some were converted to stand-up showers. Public spaces were completely redone, including alterations to the atrium, pool, fitness center, lobby, elevators and employee locker rooms. The business center was upgraded to Embassy Suites by Hilton’s Connectivity. The two executive boardrooms received new tables, wood work, refrigerators and televisions. Exterior hotel improvements were also made to the property.
“The Embassy Suites by Hilton Chicago O’Hare Airport – Rosemont has 18,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space, including a 5,100-square-foot ballroom that can accommodate up to 350 guests,” Dow added, mentioning the hotel is one of the brand’s largest for meetings in the Midwest.
