Hyatt Regency McCormick Place unveiled its multi-million dollar expansion and renovation in June. The hotel’s owner, Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority (MPEA), has invested nearly $110 million in the total renovation of the hotel, which provides a new guestroom tower, expanding the hotel to 1,258 guestrooms, renovated outlets, meetings and public space.



The project began in December of 2011 with the construction of a new 460-guestroom tower, which includes 12 suites and two premium suites. The hotel’s lobby was expanded and fully renovated and the existing 800-guestroom tower received a complete renovation. Keeping consistent with the decor of the new 460-guestroom tower, all 800 current guestrooms received new soft and hard goods, designed in a modern yet residential style including the same furniture, fixtures, design and inclusions of the new tower.

Hyatt Regency McCormick Place’s outlets were also renovated, including Shor restaurant and M/X lounge, which underwent a seating and buffet expansion and added a second private dining room. The hotel’s coffee shop, Daily Grind has been expanded and now features a new “Fresh Market” concept, which offers homemade breakfast and lunch menus, using ingredients that are sourced locally. Daily Grind continues to serve a variety of coffee drinks, along with specialty snacks, both healthy and indulgent.



For meetings and events, Hyatt Regency McCormick Place offers 50,000 sq. ft. of in-house function space including the newly redesigned 4,000-sq.ft. Prairie Room offering natural light, fine wood finishes and designer lighting. Prairie Room is available now for groups and events. The 25,000-sq. ft. Hyatt Conference Center also underwent a complete renovation, with the addition of three new boardrooms and a new business center. Larger in-house groups are easily accommodated due to Hyatt’s convenient connection with McCormick Place Convention Center and access to over 2 million sq. ft. of state-of-the-art meeting space.
