Viceroy Chicago to open in September
VICEROY HOTEL GROUP IS TO OPEN a Chicago property in September. Located on the site of the 1920s-era Cedar hotel on North State Street in the Gold Coast neighbourhood, north of Downtown, the Viceroy Chicago will be part of the luxury group’s Icon Collection.
The 180-room property is keeping the façade of the original hotel while adding an 18-floor new-build section, which will house a rooftop bar and a pool with views of the skyline and Lake Michigan.
Rooms will start from 31 sqm and offer free wifi, Nespresso machines and 55-inch Samsung smart TVs. The property will also have a gym, a ballroom and a restaurant serving “approachable American cuisine”, which will be led by chef Lee Wolen, who oversees the city’s Michelin-starred Boka.
