Chicago, Illinois, November 6, 2019 – Maverick Hotels & Restaurants, a full-service third-party hotel operator, developer and consultant, announced today the addition of the Hilton Chicago / Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center to its portfolio. Robert Habeeb, Founder and CEO of Maverick, made the announcement.
Located just west of downtown Chicago in the upscale area of Oak Brook, IL and nestled in a serene, 150-acre estate, this premier resort and conference center is the latest and highest profile property to join Maverick’s growing collection of properties operated for select owner groups.
“We are thrilled to be entrusted with this exceptional, recently rebuilt property, which features world-class amenities and cachet. Our operation of this property will draw on our rich experience with the Chicago hotel and conference marketplace, as well as with one-of-a-kind resort and event properties,“ Habeeb said.
“Working closely with ownership, we will explore the many ways we can enhance the already outstanding individual guest and group experience, including through our understanding of today’s consumer and innovative food and beverage operations,” added Maverick President and COO Robin Kirk.
The Hilton Chicago / Oak Brook Hills Resort and Conference Center’s expansive lobby overlooks a breathtaking view of 150 lush acres and the award-winning Willow Crest Golf Club, which is also a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. The transformed guestrooms are the crowning achievement of the resort’s comprehensive 3-year rebuild. Guestroom enhancements include new soft goods, as well as a new color scheme for the carpeting, furniture and window treatments. Ceramic tile in the entryways and bathroom, converted walk-in showers with stone surround in all suites, and custom wood barn bathroom doors add the final touches to the new design.
