USA, Chicago, Illinois. November 07, 2019

Maverick Hotels & Restaurants, a full-service third-party hotel operator, developer and consultant, announced today the addition of the Hilton Chicago / Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center to its portfolio. Robert Habeeb, Founder and CEO of Maverick, made the announcement.

Located just west of downtown Chicago in the upscale area of Oak Brook, IL and nestled in a serene, 150-acre estate, this premier resort and conference center is the latest and highest profile property to join Maverick's growing collection of properties operated for select owner groups.

"We are thrilled to be entrusted with this exceptional, recently rebuilt property, which features world-class amenities and cachet. Our operation of this property will draw on our rich experience with the Chicago hotel and conference marketplace, as well as with one-of-a-kind resort and event properties," Habeeb said.

"Working closely with ownership, we will explore the many ways we can enhance the already outstanding individual guest and group experience, including through our understanding of today's consumer and innovative food and beverage operations," added Maverick President and COO Robin Kirk.

The Hilton Chicago / Oak Brook Hills Resort and Conference Center's expansive lobby overlooks a breathtaking view of 150 lush acres and the award-winning Willow Crest Golf Club, which is also a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. The transformed guestrooms are the crowning achievement of the resort's comprehensive 3-year rebuild. Guestroom enhancements include new soft goods, as well as a new color scheme for the carpeting, furniture and window treatments. Ceramic tile in the entryways and bathroom, converted walk-in showers with stone surround in all suites, and custom wood barn bathroom doors add the final touches to the new design.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
