Le Méridien Chicago, Oakbrook Center

Oak Brook, Illinois

This previously unoccupied hotel has been transformed into a contemporary, upscale property reflective of Le Méridien’s European flair. Outside, the two-dimensional surface of the building’s skin creates a three-dimensional volume that appears to be woven into an abstracted plaid, a nod to the area’s retail adjacencies. The new lobby is light and elegant, with Bauhaus-inspired design features, modernist furnishings and artwork by local artists. Exuding the quality for which Le Méridien is known, the hotel features 172 guestrooms, two spa suites, a ballroom, lounge and restaurant.
