Hyatt Regency Deerfield, located just minutes from downtown Chicago and O’Hare International Airport, reopened following the completion of the first phase a multimillion-dollar, full-scale renovation. The first phase included the $14 million complete redo of the property’s 300 guest rooms and suites.

Phase two, which is slated to begin first quarter of 2020, will include refreshed, tech-enabled meeting space, updated common areas including guestroom hallways and lobby as well as the property’s signature restaurant and bar, Jaxx Bistro and Jaxx Lounge. 

The project has a focus on elevating the overall business travel experience through the marriage of clean, functional and modern design elements.

Each guest room was fitted with all-new entertainment centers including 65-inch Smart TVs, built-in custom closets, desks and sleeper sofas. The custom, built-in design components include a multi-purpose bench, which can be used as a luggage rack, for seating, or additional storage. The all-new bathrooms include new, modern walk-in showers and custom vanities. 

The overall design aesthetic, imagined by Chicago-based The Gettys Group, is inspired by the surrounding rivers that helped define the Village of Deerfield as well as its conceptual elements. The new guest rooms feature a combination of textures, and reflective and natural materials in a palette of grey tones, punctuated with sparks of color.

The palette and textural elements will be woven throughout the common areas and 20,000 square feet of meeting space including two ballrooms, two boardrooms, 16 meeting rooms and prefunction space to create a cohesive sensory experience throughout the hotel. 

The 4,100-square-foot ballroom can accommodate 450 guests while the hotel’s 7,200-sqiare-foot Atrium space has capacity for 350 people.

In addition to the onsiste Jaxx Bistro and Jaxx Lounge, there is Jaxx Java, a kiosk in the lobby that serves Starbucks Coffee. The hotel also has an onsite fitness center.

Hyatt Regency Deerfield is owned by Phoenix Development and managed by Texas-based Aimbridge Hospitality. Leopardo is the project’s general contractor.
