Chicago Athletic Association - Unbound Collection

The Chicago Athletic Association was part of the Two Roads acquisition. And per the Hyatt Development page, it now looks like the property is officially being rolled into the Unbound Collection. Which that matches what the sales manager had told me and makes the most sense. She also stated it would be joining World of Hyatt by the first part of May.

Definitely another solid option for Hyatt in the Chicago area.

Their restaurant and bar look gorgeous, so I'm very pleased that this iconic historic property is affiliating with Hyatt.

Iíve eaten here and toured the hotel and it is lovely. The location canít be beat, but the rooms vary in size, so it could be quite precious, yet not spacious for longer than a few nights stays with more than one body in the room.

Nice. Hard to beat this location if you are visiting for the Art Institute/Millennium Park area.

Wonder what the suite situation is.

Cherry Circle Room is one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago and the Rooftop Bar, Cindy's is tough to beat. Great addition.

Are you thinking "guest of honor" for them? That would be such a nice thing to do.

I can do one...in November sure somebody can beat me to it.

Location is *fine* though I usually prefer staying in River North/Gold Coast all things being equal. Good park access though.

Either that or reserve for myself and hand them the keys.

Stayed this week as a globalist. Amazing and charming property.

Great globalist recognition at check in.

Proactively upgraded by the property for being a globalist to one of 3 founders suites overlooking millennium Park. Beautifullly "Belle epoch"? Furnished. Huge natural gas fireplace with beautiful wood carving around the perimeter of it.

Breakfast was awesome.

The on site restauranta and bars were awesome.

I was so impressed!
