The historic, revival-style building once known as the bustling headquarters of the iconic Chicago and North Western Railway is soon to become one of the larger-scale hotel developments of late with the creation of the dual-branded Canopy by Hilton Chicago Central Loop (Canopy Chicago) and Hilton Garden Inn Chicago Central Loop (HGI Central Loop). The stunning new property is expected to open in late summer. The 117-year-old building, located at 226 W. Jackson, will feature 350 guestrooms and suites between both properties, along with a food and beverage outlets for each - Depot 226 and Garden Central, respectively – both featuring locally-inspired dishes and craft cocktails. In addition, guests of either property will find an on-site fitness center, two unique event spaces, outdoor terrace space shared between both. Developed by Chicago-based Phoenix Development Partners and operated by Aimbridge Hospitality, the project serves as a much-welcomed beacon of hope for the Chicago travel industry.

Canopy Chicago will offer 215 guestrooms, including 23 spacious king suites, and 675 square feet of meeting space which will comfortably serve up to 48 guests. The modern, boutique-style concept is designed as a natural extension of the neighborhood and will provide guests with a variety of local experiences. With its prime loop-centric location, guests at Canopy Chicago can hop on a complimentary Canopy Bike stationed on property and explore nearby attractions such as Millennium Park, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Shops on State Street or the Chicago Riverwalk for access to world-class entertainment and culture in minutes.

HGI Central Loop will have 135 guest rooms for travelers to retreat to, including six king suites, each complete with a separate living room area. Guests can start their day with a cooked-to-order breakfast or unwind with shareable small plates, handcrafted cocktails or craft beers at the end of the day. The on-site 624 square foot meeting space will welcome up to 40 guests.

The complex is also a prime destination for business travelers, located in close proximity to many major corporate offices, co-working spaces such as Convene, social hubs including the Metropolitan Club, fine dining and award-winning entertainment.
