Swissôtel Chicago is a AAA Four Diamond hotel offering 661 guestrooms and suites, a newly renovated lobby and event space, as well as a state-of-the-art, 38,000 square foot Event Centre. The all-glass triangular hotel is wedged into the confluence of the Chicago River and Lake Michigan and features wrap-around views from Navy Pier to Millennium Park and The Magnificent Mile.

“We are thrilled to celebrate our silver anniversary with our loyal colleagues and valued guests,” says Jack Breisacher, General Manager of the Swissôtel Chicago. “This hotel continues to grow and evolve over the years in many positive ways, and I can’t wait to see what the next 25 years bring.”

A special anniversary cocktail as well as a $25 food-and-beverage pairing will also debut that night in Amuse and be available through December 31st. Starting on August 1st, the hotel will be randomly giving away 25 complimentary room upgrades at check-in through the rest of the year. One lucky winner from social media will be picked to win a weekend stay at the rate Swissôtel Chicago offered 25 years ago, which was approximately $37.00 per night.

The Swissôtel Chicago was designed by famous American architect Harry Weese (1915 – 1998) who had an important role in 20th century modernism and historic preservation. He studied under the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and was also influenced by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen, whom he met at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan.
