Hilton Worldwide Opens New Dual-Brand Property in Downtown Chicago
Debut of Hampton Inn by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton Continues Brands’ Dual Brand Presence in Urban Markets
CHICAGO and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the opening of its newest hotel, the dual-branded Hampton Inn by Hilton Chicago Downtown West Loop and Homewood Suites by Hilton Chicago Downtown West Loop on North Jefferson, between Randolph and Washington, bringing a total of 336 new rooms to the heart of downtown Chicago. The opening furthers Hilton's successful strategy of expanding in urban markets with dual-branded properties, offering a diverse set of options for travelers. The properties were developed and are owned by a joint venture between Chicago's Jupiter Realty Co and Boston-based Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation. The hotels are managed by Hostmark Hospitality Group.
Hampton Inn by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton Chicago Downtown West Loop are situated in a prime location for visitors to enjoy everything that the booming city of Chicago has to offer.

The hotel is near River North Entertainment as well as State Street's Block 37 and one mile from shopping on Magnificent Mile. For business travelers, it is also near corporate offices for Google, Boeing, PepsiCo, the Illinois Medical District and the future headquarters for McDonald's.
"Chicago has presented a prime opportunity for expansion, coming on the heels of a record-breaking year for Chicago tourism in 2015*," said Phil Cordell, global head, Focused Service and Hampton Brand Management, Hilton. "This dual-branded Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites by Hilton located in downtown Chicago's West Loop diversifies our presence in the market while providing travelers comfortable and value-driven options."

Guests at each property have access to the Sky Fit fitness center, indoor pool and the property's outdoor Fulton Garden Terrace. The hotel has two distinct lobbies offering two separate check-in desks as well as dining areas - each catering to the needs of their respective guests.
