Sometimes all you need is a change of scenery to feel your best. That is exactly what Conrad Chicago had in mind when planning its latest move. The former Rush Street hotel (which was rebranded into The Gwen almost two years ago) will reopen at a new location at 101 E. Erie Street in September.
The 287-room luxury property will offer 65-inch flat-screens in each room (the largest TVs of any Chicago hotel), plus 10,000 square feet of meeting space. It’s also going to be the first Hilton Worldwide location to utilize 3-D custom imaging software from Social Tables. With this unique technology, planners are able to see an instantaneous and fully dimensional rendering of a proposed event space, complete with décor and table arrangements.
The hotel will also be implementing real-time digital communication channels, such as SMS, which simplifies requests of staff. As well, three restaurants will be available—one on the ground level and the others occupying the top two floors with a look at the buzzing downtown scene below.
