Viceroy Hotel Group has debuted in the Midwest with the opening of a luxury hotel in Chicago. Marking the latest addition to the brand’s Icon Collection, the 180-key Viceroy Chicago is located on the site of the former Cedar Hotel in the city’s Gold Coast neighborhood and features culinary concepts from Boka Restaurant Group. Details for the hotel were unveiled earlier this summer.
The hotelier worked in collaboration with Chicago-based Convexity Properties, Todd-Avery Lenahan of hospitality design firm TAL Studio, The Gettys Group procurement team and architect Goettsch Partners on the project, which included restoring the Cedar Hotel’s original brick and terracotta façade that was first designed by architects Rissman and Hirschfield. (Lenahan is the cover subject of Boutique Design’s September 2017 edition.)
“A hub for culture, cuisine and style, Chicago is the ideal location to start Viceroy Hotel Group’s journey into the Midwest,” says Bill Walshe, ceo of Viceroy Hotel Group. “We’re proud to make our Chicago debut in partnership with hotel owner Convexity Properties, with whom we share a passion for creating distinct, memorable experiences, and who are a team with a unique knowledge of this incredible city.”
