Phoenix Development Partners announced that the city will soon receive a 350 guestroom dual-branded hotel complex at the historical 117-year-old site of the former headquarters of the Chicago & North Western Railways, 226 W. Jackson.
Set to open late summer, the property will offer two separate concepts, each with their own distinct personalities and amenities, in both Canopy by Hilton Chicago Central Loop and the Hilton Garden Inn Central Loop. Each hotel will feature offerings including a restaurant and lounge space for guests, fitness and meeting centers, outdoor terrace space and more.
In the Canopy, guests will enjoy Depot 226, a bistro, market and coffee shop that will be open for breakfast, lunch, brunch or a casual dinner. Both properties are pet-friendly.
Appointed Landmark status by the Commission on Chicago Landmarks, the property will pay homage to the site’s rich history as a bustling transportation headquarters through its stylish design that celebrates its past and future. Some unique elements of the building will remain intact, including the original staircase and tile remnants that will be incorporated into the lobby space. Various mixed media works, historical pieces and architectural fragments will also be featured on property that will celebrate travel, cartography and Chicago’s rich history.
