• Nobu Hospitality Group Announces New Hotel and Restaurant Plans

    POSTED April 17, 2014

Lifestyle group Nobu Hospitality LLC announced plans for the development of a new luxury boutique, Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Chicago, which is planned to open in early 2016.

"Chicago’s tourism industry continues to see record growth because renowned venues like Nobu are investing in expanding options for Chicagoans and tourists," said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. "This hotel and restaurant builds on the city’s great hospitality and culinary offerings to further cement Chicago’s role as a world-class city."

The hotel and restaurant, which will be located in the West Loop, has hired Shawn Sullivan, a partner and studio leader at the Rockwell Group, as designer for the project. Sullivan’s design will encompass the needs for all stakeholders by using the "core DNA" of the Nobu brand.

The hotel and restaurant will feature 155 guestrooms, the Nobu Restaurant and an indoor/outdoor bar. The building plans also include a lounge, a rooftop venue and exclusive guestroom retreats.

Chicago Marriott Schaumburg is undergoing a multimillion-dollar renovation to elevate the overall guest experience. All guest rooms, public areas, new restaurant and bar, lobby, function areas, fitness room, indoor and outdoor pools as well as the exterior of the building and the parking lot will be renovated.


Chicago’s Steak 48 has been awarded a place on OpenTable’s 2019 list of the 100 Best Restaurants in America for a Big Night Out. Scanning more than 12 million reviews from verified diners, the list considered more than 30,000 restaurants across the country. 


Lakhani Hospitality celebrated its 15th anniversary with a $10 million renovation of Holiday Inn & Suites Chicago North Shore. The family-owned company, which started in 2002 with the Holiday Inn Skokie, is now comprised of five Chicagoland hotel companies, totaling close to 1,000 guest rooms.
