Following a multimillion-dollar, eight-month renovation, DoubleTree by Hilton Chicago Midway Airport opens today as Hilton‘s closest full-service hotel to the nearby international airport. The 146-room hotel, located on the site of the former Cracker Jack factory, is part of the Midway Hotel Center-Weglarz Hotel Collection, owned by The Weglarz Company and managed by White Lodging.
Located in Bedford Park, the refreshed hotel has a unique interior design from Interior Image Group meant to welcome guests with new features, beginning with the lobby. Created with both business and leisure travelers in mind, the open lobby features a linear gas fireplace, communal tables with convenient power outlets, a shuffleboard table and a modernized Coaches Sports Bar & Grill.
Beyond the lobby, the multi-stage renovation included all guest rooms and public areas, including the restaurant, meetings and events spaces, and state-of-the-art fitness center. The spacious guest rooms include an in-room safe, chaise lounge and custom amenities designed for relaxation and productivity. The renovated meetings and events space includes a 2,100-square-foot ballroom, perfect for events such as family reunions or graduation parties.
The hotel also boasts a new patio, featuring string lights, a fire pit, soft seating and activities designed for fun, including foosball. Additionally, a complimentary shuttle service is available to and from Chicago Midway International Airport.
