Embassy Suites Chicago-Downtown Completes $12.3 Million Renovation

CHICAGO, IL, April 7, 2011—Davidson Hotel Company, one of the nation’s largest independent hotel management companies, today announced that the 367-suite Embassy Suites Chicago-Downtown (top left photo) in Illinois has completed a $12.3 million renovation.

  Davidson has managed the hotel since June 1, 2010, on behalf of owners, Sunstone Hotel Investors, Inc.  Sunstone oversaw the project; Design Force of Denver, Colo., was the design firm for the renovation.

“The renovation has enhanced the overall guest experience of this exceptionally located hotel,” said Patrick Lupsha (lower right photo), Davidson’s chief operating officer.

 “All guest suites were completely renovated, including new case goods, state-of-the-art workstations, carpeting, wall coverings, two flatscreen televisions per suite and bathrooms. 

“We are confident that the significant capital investment, coupled with our expertise in the Chicago market, will establish the Embassy Suites Chicago-Downtown as the leading upscale, all-suite destination in the market.”

“Chicago is a town with an incredible architectural heritage, which made this project all the more interesting and challenging,” said Roxanne Fancy, president, Design Force.

 “In addition to guest suite interiors, we installed new carpeting, wall coverings, contrasting paint on doors and light sconces in the guest corridors.  All aspects of the renovation complement the bold and self-assured style for which Chicago is well known.”

Located at 600 North State Street, in the heart of downtown Chicago, the upscale, all-suite hotel is convenient to Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile, Loyola University, Navy Pier, American Girl Place, and Lincoln Park Zoo.  The 11-story atrium hotel also is near Boeing Headquarters, City Hall and Chicago Board of Trade.
