Last week, Chicago Alderman Brendan Reilly, Hotelier Laurence Geller and Hilton executives gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to proudly announce the opening of the Conrad Chicago on the Magnificent Mile. Though the luxury hotel originally operated under the same name with a former location on Rush Street, the venue has been completely refreshed with new design elements and a new location in the former Draft FCB building.
Sometimes all you need is a change of scenery to feel your best. That is exactly what Conrad Chicago had in mind when planning its latest move. The former Rush Street hotel (which was rebranded into The Gwen almost two years ago) will reopen at a new location at 101 E. Erie Street in September.
