JW Marriott, Chicago, Illinois
At the historic 208 South LaSalle, the architecture of this landmarked building designed by D.H. Burnham in 1911 is restored to house what will be the most luxurious hotel in Chicago’s Loop. Architecture of past and present creates the backdrop of industrious people. So too is the hotel’s interior- a study in contrasts-used to set the tone for historically rich treasures and dynamic discoveries. Scale, pattern, and color of Burnham design influences the hotels architectural detailing, carpet patterns and rich color story. Voluminous spaces layered in classical detailing contrasts contemporary saturated furnishings activating the lobby Great Room. The guestroom is modern, rich and luxurious, offering a stately yet comfortable reprieve from the fervid energy of the Windy City.
