SpringHill Suites Coming to Chinatown via New Build

Summit Design + Build, LLC recently completed the new construction of a four-story, 80,000 square foot SpringHill Suites hotel at 2353 S. Wentworth Ave. in the South Side’s Chinatown neighborhood. The hotel, which was constructed on top of an existing two-story parking garage and retail center, is only the third hotel in the immediate area.
SpringHill Suites, the all-suite hotel brand under parent company Marriott International, brings 148 rooms to Chinatown, a short distance from the Cermak/Chinatown Red Line station and 1 mile from McCormick Place. The hotel also offers traditional amenities of the branded hotel variety including a first floor lobby, reception, gym, breakfast room and meeting room. Custom millwork and finishes are featured throughout the hotel.
Summit Design + Build served as construction manager, and T2 Mechanical served as the general contractor. Vari Architects provided design services for the SpringHill Suites project.
