Ever since I spotted the first images in August I’ve been very interested in seeing more of The Robey Hotel, a Chicago based boutique hotel that opens in the fall and was designed by fellow Belgians Nicolas Schuybroek and Marc Merckx. The Robey is situated in a 1929 Art Deco triangular shaped building called the Northwest Tower, and has been undergoing the transformation from office space to hotel for the past few years.
At first glance their efforts resulted in a modern all american atmosphere, a perfect fit for this iconic building as well as the city. The hotel will open somewhere in November and has 69 rooms on 12 stories, a ground floor restaurant and a rooftop bar. The hotel offers amenities from Le Labo and Egyptian cotton sheets, the bedrooms have beautiful hardwood floors and are separated from bathrooms by pristine glass.
In the communal spaces the Robey says there will be “terrazzo, natural woods, and hues of red, pink, white, and gray. Furniture ranges from sleek and streamlined to inviting and contemporary, with minimalism reigning throughout.” I’m so very curious to see more when it opens in November!
