Chicago’s newest Hyatt House extended-stay hotel is now under development by Sterling Bay and Skender. The new 14-story, 200-room hotel is located in the heart of Chicago’s Fulton Market neighborhood at 105 N. May Street.

The 167,000-square-foot property will be the first hotel in the Fulton Market district to cater to extended-stay corporate travelers, and includes amenities ranging from an indoor pool and multiple green roof features, to upgraded common areas such as a bar and lounge with city views.

Scheduled to open in summer 2019, the hotel building will offer a first-floor lobby and future retail space. The pool, workout center and lounge are situated on the 14th floor.
