LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill.

Chicago Marriott Lincolnshire Resort finished a $25 million renovation that transformed nearly every aspect of the resort from the introduction of new restaurants—Three Embers and Wrights Brew & Bistro—to the addition of a brand-new Xhale Spa and a Starbucks. The resort's guest rooms were also renovated.

The property is managed by The Bricton Group and it is the home of the Marriott Theatre.

“Guests’ needs have changed, and we’ve updated the resort to meet them with unprecedented comfort and flexibility,” said Eric Bates, general manager of the Chicago Marriott Lincolnshire Resort. “We’ve married the sophistication of the Marriott brand with local, personalized touches. Everything has been transformed, from convenient tech upgrades, to the guest rooms and Great Room lobby, [and more].”

The Gettys Group led the design of the project, implementing modern technology and amenities throughout the resort. The renovation was completed in concurrent stages with minimal interruption.

One of the major changes that took place during the transformation was the complete overhaul of the former King’s Wharf restaurant space. Succeeding the 40-year local favorite are two new dining destinations; the more upscale Three Embers and the more casual Wrights Brew & Bistro.

“Steak and seafood houses are a dime-a-dozen in the Chicagoland area, and we have made it our primary goal to breathe fresh life into the North Shore dining scene through unique ingredients, an upscale atmosphere and unparalleled service,” says Pierre Daval, executive chef of the Chicago Marriott Lincolnshire Resort. “Three Embers honors the simplicity, versatility and quality of Midwest cuisine, while integrating a southern European flair—making it unlike any other dining destination [in the area].”

Chicago Marriott Lincolnshire added a 5,000-square-foot Lakeside Pavilion to its event offerings, which offers unobscured views of Lake Lincolnshire, Crane’s Landing Golf Course and surrounding areas. The Lakeside Pavilion can accommodate up to 400 guests for a seated dinner and its adjoining lakeside patio with more than 2,500 square feet of open air beauty is perfect for hosting pre-event cocktail hours. The Lakeside Pavilion is a year-round, flexible event space, equipped with heating and air-conditioning.

In total, the Chicago Marriott Lincolnshire offers 40,000 square feet of meeting space.
