Nobu Hotel Chicago is set to debut in late 2017 in the popular West Loop neighborhood through a partnership of actor Robert DeNiro, Chef Nobu Matsushisa, Hollywood producer Meir Teper and Australian business tycoon James Packer. The luxury property will offer 103 guest rooms, a 10,000-square-foot restaurant, as well as a rooftop bar, indoor pool, private spa services and various unique event and private dining spaces. 

“The Nobu meeting experience will offer planners and attendees unique experiences in inspirational settings with a hint of the unexpected,” says Rachael Palumbo, VP of sales and marketing for Nobu Hotels. “Sensory-driven environments will be enhanced with distinct meeting amenities that promote health and wellness, as well as simplistic setups that provide the perfect backdrop to any event.” Guests will be able to partake in the “Nobu lifestyle,” by enjoying customized experiences that go handin-hand with treasured Nobu cuisine.
