The Holiday Inn portion of the property is the first in the Americas to feature its refreshed and modernized H5 guest room design concepts, while the adjoining Staybridge Suites section maintains its signature suites and weekly “The Social” happy hour gatherings.

Kevin Schramm, SVP, mainstream – U.S. and Canada, IHG Hotels & Resorts, said, “In recent years, we’ve seen greater interest in dual-branded properties among owners seeking more efficient and cost-conscious ways to streamline operations while introducing guests to a broader range of brands and offerings. Holiday Inn and Staybridge Suites O’Hare Airport exemplifies our ongoing efforts to develop new and flexible designs that bring the best and most in-demand elements of our complementary brands together, all while extending our reach in a fantastic market like Chicago.”
