We’ve been keeping tabs on the latest luxury hotel to open in Chicago, and word is that The Langham will debut in mid 2013 at 330 North Wabash Avenue in the Mies van der Rohe-designed IBM building: the 52-story landmark that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Recently the Langham Hospitality Group made the announcement of the appointment of Kevin Robinson as General Manager of The Langham, Chicago.
Prior to helming The Langham, Robinson was the General Manager and Chief Operating Officer of Elysian Hotels and Resorts. Robinson has extensive experience in senior roles with luxury hotel brands in North Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States. When the hotel opens, it will have some of the largest guest rooms in the city starting at 520 square feet. For more information, visit http://chicago.langhamhotels.com
