Ambassador Chicago is to become part of Hyatt’s lifestyle hotel brand, Joie de Vivre Hotels.
As part of the transition into the portfolio, the hotel will now undergo a refresh, with its 285 bedrooms and suites given an uplift plus the addition of the Joie de Vivre Hotels brand’s signature Jonathan Adler bath products and 55-inch LG smart TVs with streaming capabilities.
Also expected to get a facelift are the hotel’s public spaces such as The Library – a lounge serving La Colombe Coffee and pastries from the Coffee Bar by day, and light bites and libations alongside a fireplace come nightfall.
“We were immediately drawn to the spirit of the Joie de Vivre Hotels brand,” says Katharine Degoma, general manager of Ambassador Chicago. “The brand celebrates the individuality of each hotel, which is very important to preserve for a one-of-a-kind hotel like Ambassador Chicago. Joining Joie de Vivre Hotels gives us the opportunity to celebrate Ambassador Chicago’s legendary history while also curating authentic experiences for the modern traveler.”
Other hotel amenities at Ambassodor Chicago include a modern American restaurant, the Food Gallery, which is helmed by Executive Chef Pedro Avila.
There is also a variety of meeting and event space and both a business and fitness Center.
