The property offers amenities including grab and go breakfast, complementary Wi-Fi, all-day gym, heated indoor pool, business centre and others.
Lakhani Hospitality, avid hotel O’Hare – Des Plaines, development head Karim Lakhani said: “We’re thrilled to bring the first avid hotel to Illinois and open our doors to welcome travellers to Chicago.
