Part of a $150 million renovation, the 1,544-room Hilton Chicago revealed several refreshed meeting spaces last fall. The concept from design firm Looney & Associates was inspired by Chicago's founding motto, Urbs in Horto, which translates to “city in a garden.” Shades of purple and blue in bold, geometric patterns, including vivid blue carpeting, are a nod to Lake Michigan; chandeliers and modern pendants mix with sleek grey and gold armchairs to provide both classic sophistication and a touch of modern flair. Part of the hotel’s 234,000 square feet of meeting space, the 119,000-square-foot Stevens Meeting Center also was part of the recent renovation. At nearly 29,000 square feet, the newly renovated Salon C features a bold floral carpet, suspended ceilings, and soundproof HufCor Movable Walls that can divide the room into as many as six separate spaces. The hotel’s third floor offers 12 small- and medium-size rooms, with the largest space, the 7,192-square-foot Williford Room, accommodating 850 guests for receptions.
