Hotel Indigo Chicago-Vernon Hills Opens Following a $5
Renovation and Conversion from an AmeriSuites Hotel
VERNON HILLS, Ill., May 5, 2008 - As boutique hotels - with their intimate, luxurious environments, and personalized accommodations and services - gain increasing popularity across North America, Hotel Indigo will open its much-anticipated third property in the Chicago area on May 8th. Following a $5 million renovation and conversion from an AmeriSuites hotel, the Hotel Indigo Chicago-Vernon Hills will debut at 450 North Milwaukee Avenue in the scenic suburb of Vernon Hills, with easy access to downtown Chicago and O'Hare International Airport.
The 100% non-smoking, 127-room world-class property is owned by FCLC Vernon Hills LLC and managed by Lane Hospitality of Northbrook, IL, under a license agreement with a company in the InterContinental Hotels Group. With top-notch guest rooms and public areas, full service amenities and cutting edge cuisine, the hotel offers guests an upscale, trendy and relaxed atmosphere, and all at an attractive price.
"The area hasn't seen anything like this in years, and we are proud to present the Hotel Indigo Chicago-Vernon Hills to our guests and our community," said John Marko, Regional Vice President of Hotel Operations, Lane Hospitality.
"Chicagoland has embraced Hotel Indigo's branded boutique concept, and we're excited to be opening our third hotel in the area," commented Jim Anhut, Senior Vice President, Franchise Development, the Americas, IHG.
"The Interpret Indigo design program allows us to offer a unique experience at each property in Chicago, while still providing the service culture and consistency that our guests expect."
Hotel Indigo is known as the industry's first branded boutique hotel, artfully combining the conveniences and consistencies of a brand hotel with the design cache and service personality of a boutique at an attractive price. The soul of the brand's retail-inspired concept is renewal - thoughtful changes that are made throughout the year to keep the hotel fresh, similar to the way retailers change their window displays - that provides even the most frequent guest a unique experience with every stay. The hotel features renewable elements such as vivid nature inspired murals, area rugs, plush duvets and slipcovers that will change periodically. In addition, public spaces will be transformed seasonally through changing artwork, music, flora and murals.
Signature features of the six-story Hotel Indigo Chicago-Vernon Hills include:
