The Park Tower

Designed by Lucien Lagrange Architects, the Park Tower features Minnesota limestone with granite accents; detailed relief work; and a distinctive copper crown, giving the tower instant recognition on the Chicago skyline while reinforcing the building’s residential character. Developed by Hyatt Development Corporation and LR Development, the structure integrates a four-star hotel with 117 luxury condominiums and exclusive shops such as Giorgio Armani, Marlowe, and Bottega Veneta.

Art Collection

Providing well-traveled clientele with an additional aesthetic component to their stay, Park Hyatt Chicago’s impressive art collection is a truly cultural experience. From Dale Chihuly’s hand-blown glass sculpture, Lumière d’Ambre to Gerhard Richter’s 1968 masterpiece Piazza del Duomo, currently valued at over $8 million, also including works of art by Frank Stella and local Chicago artist Nancie Mertz, the extraordinary compilation of world-renowned works of art were thoughtfully selected to express the vitality, personality and culture of the property.

With a majority of the pieces selected by top curators at Chicago’s finest art institutions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Art Institute of Chicago, the hotel’s artwork includes an extensive collection of original black-and-white photography by local artists such as Scott Fortino, James Linehan, James Iska, and Ron Gordon, commissioned by Art Institute of Chicago Curator of Photography, David Travis. In addition, Staci Boris, Associate Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art commissioned several pieces in which artists worked in a site-specific mode taking into consideration the dimensions, function, materials and architecture of the space, resulting in art masterpieces that fit perfectly within the framework of the hotel.

NoMI Kitchen

Impeccable service from sincere and approachable staff. A commitment to the culture of great food. Flavours inspired by the seasons. Regionally-sourced ingredients. That’s what you’ll find when you dine at Park Hyatt Chicago’s NoMI Kitchen. Long considered one of downtown Chicago’s best restaurants, NoMI has undergone a full renovation to be reborn as a casually elegant dining destination for locals and hotel guests alike. NoMI Kitchen is based on the idea that the center of the home is the kitchen, where family and friends gather; an everyday occasion place. The unique design presents the kitchen as the focal point, showcasing the culinary team led by Executive Chef Ryan LaRoche.

The dining room at Park Hyatt Chicago offers a comfortable, warm and inviting atmosphere. Contemporary tones with dark browns, creams and pop of colors infuse the space with warmth and complement the restored details of the original mosaic tile floors. The renowned Dale Chihuly hand-blown glass sculptures are repositioned in the private dining rooms. The artistic “Winter Branches” adorn the space located above the dining room’s coveted window tables and specially commissioned photographs by Robert Bengston enhance the interior and overall experience.
