Inside the Renovated JW Marriott Chicago

Renovated from office space into the JW Marriott Chicago in 2010, the hotel has received the "Global JW Hotel of the Year" award at the Global General Managers Conference in Los Angeles.

The JW Marriott Chicago opened in November 2010 inside Chicago's historic landmark, the Continental & Commercial National Bank building.  $450 million of investors' money seamlessly blended the historic building's integrity with modern design by architect Daniel Burnham.

The hotel occupies the first 12 floors of the building with 581 guestrooms, each with 455-square-feet of space, 29 luxury suites each featuring 960-square-feet of space.  Every guestroom and suite has 10-foot high ceilings with handcrafted crown molding and spacious Italian marble bathrooms with stand alone tubs and separate marble showers. This is the first JW Marriott-branded hotel to feature a full IPTV system with a personal computer that allows each guest full access to the Internet.

The JW Marriott Chicago offers 44,000-square-feet of meeting space in 40 meeting rooms, an 8,500-square-foot Grand Ballroom, a 20,000-square-foot VALEO Spa, Fitness and Wellness Center and a 6,000-square-foot Burnham Ballroom which features the building's original domed ceiling.

BLT Restaurant Group's The Florentine, is the hotel's 125-seat, three meal a day Italian restaurant. The restaurant also features imported Italian pastas, cheeses, salts and meats and offers a private dining room for up to 40 guests. For more casual dining, the Lobby Lounge will include a variety of light and healthy choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  

The JW Marriott Chicago was also named one of the "2012 Top 10 Best Hotels in Chicago" by U.S. News & World Report and was the host of the 12th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates in April, an honor in that this was the first year a North American city has ever held the summit.
