The Gwen is housed within the landmark McGraw-Hill Building that’s adorned with sculptural panels created in 1929 by pioneering artist Gwen Lux, the hotel’s namesake. Embracing her artistic spirit, The Gwen celebrates the energy and glamour of Chicago in the Art Deco era and is themed around art and the 1930s, including new luxurious programs like our Prohibition Porter cocktail experience, in-room art studio set up and 1930s cocktail menu.
Surrounded by premier shopping, The Gwen is connected to The Shops at North Bridge, providing enclosed access to upscale retailers, such as Nordstrom Michigan Avenue, Stuart Weitzman, and Hugo Boss. Guests looking for a new level of luxury can experience the Dressing Room to Guest Room service where clothing picks will be waiting for you in your room upon arrival.
It is also minutes from The Loop, Chicago’s business district, as well as world-class dining, and exciting cultural and entertainment hotspots. The Gwen serves as a reminder of the golden era, yet brings luxury to the current generation of global explorers through accommodations with fine linens, deep-soaking tubs and open terraces that overlook the Chicago skyline – a rarity in the Windy City.
The hotel’s 300 spacious guest rooms and indulgent suites are distinguished by modern furnishings and amenities. High Speed Internet Access is complimentary, and a 42-inch flat screen TV with a surround-sound system provides entertainment options.
Savor exceptional cuisine in one of three upscale dining venues, or unwind with a glass of wine and an appetizer at the Terrace Bar. Truly memorable business meetings and social events are hosted in more than 14,500 square feet of function space.
