The ninth floor of the property will feature a new bar and restaurant concept with a variety of meeting spaces. It will also feature a spacious as well as well-equipped roof-top terrace fitness centre to provide more luxury elements to the guests.
To offer a distinct and compelling experience to the guests, the hotel’s 172 rooms and suites, including a presidential suite and two spa suites, will be refurbished and feature the signature Le Méridien Bed.
The Le Méridien Chicago – Oakbrook Center will feature the transformed traditional lobby as a social gathering place with creative atmosphere where contemporary, curated artwork sets the environment.
In order to provide an award-winning arrival experience and coffee culture, the hub will be decorated with art work.
