To the long list of reasons to visit Chicago, which include world-class art, architecture, music, and shopping, add one more: the opportunity to stay in the new Bottega Veneta suite at Park Hyatt Chicago. This is an exclusive collaboration between Bottega Veneta and Park Hyatt Chicago, two companies that value understated luxury, personalized service, and distinctive local character.
Park Hyatt Chicago is located on Michigan Avenue’s “Magnificent Mile,” occupying the first 18 stories of the Park Tower building, designed by Lucien Lagrange Architects and completed in 2000. The hotel offers striking views of Lake Michigan as well as proximity to many of the city’s finest cultural attractions and shopping. Park Hyatt Chicago is also home to an exceptional collection of contemporary art, including Dale Chihuly’s hand-blown glass sculpture “Lumière d’Ambre,” Gerhard Richter’s 1968 masterpiece “Piazza del Duomo,” works of art by Frank Stella and local Chicago artist Nancie Mertz, and an extensive collection of original black-and-white photography by local artists such as Scott Fortino, James Linehan, James Iska, and Ron Gordon.
The Bottega Veneta suite, which overlooks the lake and measures 1,400 square feet, is comprised of a bedroom, an open living room/dining room, a kitchenette, and two bathrooms. In designing the one-of-a-kind suite, Bottega Veneta Creative Director Tomas Maier considered the attributes of both the hotel and the city. “Our aim is to create an environment that respects the identity of the hotel and enhances the particular experience of being in Chicago,” he explains. The clean lines and modern furniture that characterize Park Hyatt are reflected in the sleek, elegantly minimalist design of the Bottega Veneta suite. The rooms are spacious and uncluttered, maximizing the light and unobstructed views of Chicago’s expansive lakefront framed by the enormous bay windows that outline the space.
