CHICAGO (May 2, 2016) – The Bricton Group announced today that the brand-new Chinatown-based Jaslin Hotel ( will open on Wed., May 4, 2016. The 101-room property boasting excellent views of the Chicago skyline and a convenient location close to McCormick Place, as well as a five-minute “el” or taxi ride to downtown Chicago, is located at 259 W. Cermak Road. Currently completing construction, the property will be managed by The Bricton Group and Mark Lewis, an experienced hospitality executive, will join the Jaslin Hotel as general manager.

“The Jaslin Hotel is a stone’s throw from the best of Chicago,” said Edward Doherty, president of The Bricton Group. “Guests are within walking distance from the convention center, Lake Michigan, and the red line of the Chicago ‘el,’ which takes you straight to places like US Cellular Field, the Loop, the Magnificent Mile and Wrigley Field.”

The hotel’s unique location in Chinatown is a destination in itself. Built over a century ago by Chinese-Americans, Chinatown is one of Chicago’s most vibrant neighborhoods, featuring the best Chinese restaurants in the city, tea shops, bakeries, colorful gift shops, museums and art. Visitors can explore the neighborhood with experienced tour guides, or plan their visit around cultural festivals like the Chinese New Year, Lunar New Year, the annual Dragon Boat Race and the Summer Fair.

Mark Lewis, general manager, is looking forward to welcoming guests to both the Jaslin Hotel and the neighborhood. With more than 20 years of experience in hospitality management, Lewis has worked with IHG, Hyatt, Hilton, Starwood and Kimpton hotel properties.
