A new 223-room lifestyle hotel, Canopy by Hilton in Chicago, will open in fall 2018 on S. LaSalle Street and W. Adams Street, in the Chicago Loop area.

"We are delighted to bring the Canopy by Hilton brand to the thriving Loop neighborhood, in the heart of the Financial District,” says Michael W. Reschke, chairman and CEO, The Prime Group. “With convenient proximity to Chicago’s central business district, dining, shopping, the theater district and Canopy’s dedication to comfort and service, our Canopy by Hilton hotel will be a natural choice for both business and leisure travelers looking for a true Chicago experience.”

The design of the hotel was inspired by natural, local materials; and is supposed to be an extension of the downtown Chicago area. The hotel will feature work from local artists and artisans, local food and drink, and will offer welcome gifts specific to the area.

Guest rooms will have about 480 square feet of space, wood floors, a large flat screen TV and large bathrooms with walk-in showers. Other amenities will include a complimentary breakfast, complimentary wine and beer tasting, fitness center, a lounge, 4,000 square feet of meeting space, a rooftop terrace and a bar for their guests.

“We’re looking forward to extending a warm welcome to the Loop neighborhood,” says Gary Steffen, global head, Canopy by Hilton. “The Windy City is an exceptional destination with rich history, outstanding culinary offerings and so much for visitors to explore; we look forward to Canopy giving energetic and adventurous travelers an authentic neighborhood experience.”

Located on the River Walk, the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk has completed its $38 million renovation just in time for its 40thanniversary. The renovation broke ground in December 2021. The hotel’s 602 guestrooms and 28 suites were redesigned to reflect an upscale urban experience.
