It’s been years in the making, and now Viceroy Chicago is prepping to open in 2017 in the city’s Gold Coast neighborhood. Located at 1118 N State Street, the property is situated on the site of the former Cedar Hotel which dates to the 1920s. (In homage to its history, the new-build Viceroy will showcase the Cedar’s original brick and terracotta façade, originally designed by architects Rissman and Hirschfield. For this project, Viceroy teamed up with Chicago developer Convexity Properties to preserve and showcase this historic façade.)

The 18-story structure will house 180 guest rooms, including 42 suites, designed by TAL Studio. There will be a destination restaurant with cuisine highlighting “modern, Midwest flavors” plus a rooftop pool and lounge which is expected to quickly become a neighborhood hot spot. (Cocktails with Great Lake views, anyone?) In addition, Viceroy Chicago will have 3,600 square feet of meeting and event space.

It will be opening in September of this year.
