The luxurious JW Marriott Chicago was designed by renowned architect Daniel Burnham, an urban planner who created the modern city plan for Chicago. With exquisite architecture and elegant décor, this historical landmark’s $396 million restoration blends Burnham’s distinctive style with 21st century sensibility, providing a hotel of distinctive pedigree. Housed in Burnham’s Continental & Commercial National Bank Building, Marriott’s first JW Marriott hotel in Chicago will open this fall, after a $396 million restoration, with 44,000 feet of meeting space and state-of-the-art conference and recreation facilities.

- GoThere Virtual Meetings studio with AT&T & Cisco Telepresence

The guest rooms combine Burnham’s style with modern luxury, including high ceilings surrounded by beautiful molding, flat-screen high-definition television and five-fixture marble bathrooms. From the wall mounted glass lights by the bed to the sleek ergonomic desk chairs, no detail has been spared. Rooms on the concierge floor even feature televisions in the bathroom mirrors.
