Fifteen-year hospitality veteran Tony Marco has been appointed General Manager of Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market. In his new role, Marco will be responsible for overseeing all operations and functions of the 14-story, 200-room property and a 50-person staff.

Owned by Wheelock Street Capital, headquartered in Greenwich, Connecticut and managed by Tampa-based McKibbon Hospitality, Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market opened its doors in June 2019 in one of the Windy City’s most up-and-coming neighborhoods. Catering primarily to business travelers with a focus on extended stays, the hotel offers a wide array of amenities and conveniences including a modern lobby bar, flexible meeting space, top-floor pool with a sky deck overlooking downtown Chicago, and 24-hour fitness center.

Marco joins Hyatt House Chicago/West Loop-Fulton Market after a stint as General Manager for the 178-room Hilton Garden Inn Chicago North Shore/Evanston, where he oversaw 50 associates and all hotel operations. He began his hospitality career in 2006 as Executive Housekeeping Manager for the Marriott Midway Airport, moving up to Operations Manager within a year. He landed his first general manager position in 2012 at the Sleep Inn Midway Airport, followed by a general manager position at the Hampton Inn Midway Airport and the Residence Inn Oak Brook.

During his time at the Hilton Garden Inn Chicago North Shore, his involvement in sales helped generate a $300,000 increase in group revenue for 2019. At the Hampton Inn Midway Airport, his team produced guest service scores in the top 20 percent of the brand. Marco earned a BA in Business Management at the University of Sunderland, England, in 2004.
