Conrad Hotels & Resorts recently reached an agreement with Geller Investment Co. and Wanxiang America Real Estate Group to open a new Conrad hotel in the Windy City. According to a news release, a brand new Conrad Chicago will open at the corner of Michigan Ave. and Erie St. in the spring of 2016.
The current Conrad Chicago at 521 N. Rush St. will be rebranded under Starwood Hotels & Resorts’ Luxury Collection.

The 20-story Conrad Chicago will feature 287 rooms, more than 10,500 square feet of meeting and event space, as well as a variety of dining and entertainment attractions.
“The signing of the new Conrad Chicago underscores our commitment to delivering best-in-class hotels in key gateway locations that meet the growing needs of global luxury travelers,” said John Vanderslice, global head at Conrad Hotels & Resorts. “This new property enhances the Conrad portfolio and supports our goal of connecting travelers to the most inspiring destinations around the world.”
The new Conrad Chicago will be the sixth property in North America under the Conrad brand name. The company is currently working on projects in Fort Lauderdale and Washington, D.C.
