IHG opens new avid hotel in Chicago

by | 24 May 2022 | Projects

The brand new avid hotel Chicago O-Hare – Des Plaines places guests close to Chicago O’Hare International Airport in Illinois.

The fast-growing IHG brand, avid hotels, now has 53 properties in operation across the United States and Mexico.

Brand entry to Illinois

Designed according to the brand’s promise to provide the basics done exceptionally well at a fair price, avid hotel Chicago O-Hare – Des Plaines features brand hallmarks including rooms made for sound sleep with high-quality bedding and noise reduction.

The property is conveniently located less than three miles from what’s known as one of the world’s busiest airports.

Commenting on the opening, Karim Lakhani, head of Development for Lakhani Hospitality, avid hotel O’Hare – Des Plaines, said: “We’re thrilled to bring the first avid hotel to Illinois and open our doors to welcome travellers to Chicago.”

“This city is a hub for business and leisure travellers, and as they land in the Windy City, the avid hotel Chicago O’Hare – Des Plaines is sure to provide them with everything they need from a comfortable bed and a high-quality grab and go breakfast in the morning every time they stay with us.”

Continued growth

The new hotel is now introducing guests to the U.S.’s third-largest city and its Midwestern hospitality. Ideal for both business and leisure travellers, the property provides easy access to the country’s largest convention centre and a number of the city’s many museums.

Other recent openings from avid hotels have included the February-opened avid hotel Detroit-Warren and the April-opened avid Hotel Ocala close to downtown Ocala and the Ocala International Airport-Jim Taylor Field.

The first avid hotel opened in 2018. Since then the brand has grown to include 53 open properties with more than 150 in the pipeline. The brand will enter Canada later this year with an opening in Ontario.

Karen Gilbride, VP of avid hotels and Atwell Suites, said: “With each new hotel opening, we are able to welcome travellers to experience avid hotels for the first time, as well as welcome back our passionate fans who eagerly look for our hotels wherever they go.”

“We’re proud to add the avid hotel Chicago O’Hare – Des Plaines to our growing portfolio and this most recent opening demonstrates the brand’s continued momentum across North America.”
