The hotel's name will become Loews Chicago O’Hare.
New York-based Loews, which is also building a new 400-room hotel in Streeterville scheduled to open in February, is expanding its portfolio of hotels and “continues to add properties in gateway cities and resort destinations,” the company said in a news release.
"The Midwest is an area where we were looking to increase our presence," Jonathan Tisch, Chairman of Loews Hotels & Resorts, said in the release.
The 556-room Intercontinental Chicago O’Hare, located less than two miles from O’Hare in Rosemont, has three restaurants and bars, more than 53,000 square feet of meeting and event space and a curated art gallery. The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center and the Fashion Outlets of Chicago are nearby.
