Location: Chicago, Illinois
Size: 2.3 million sq ft,1,620 luxury hotel rooms, 250,000 sq ft of meeting and exhibition space
Notable: One of the largest hotel renovations ever undertaken. A joint venture between The Shaw Company, Hilton, and Prudential Insurance.
The renovation of Chicago’s landmark Conrad Hilton Hotel was directed, managed, and executed by The Shaw Company in phases during a four-year period. Carefully planned so that the luxury hotel was only fully closed for nine months, this $180 million project included the conversion of 3,000 guest rooms into 1,620 state-of-the-art luxury hotel rooms and 250,000 square feet of meeting and exhibition space. It also added newly constructed facilities such as an eight-story parking garage and a health club with swimming pool.
