The brand features guest-centric hallmarks such as rooms designed for sound sleep, with high-quality mattresses and linens, choice of firm and soft pillows, and a purposeful design that reduces noise. All avid hotels stays are backed by the IHG Clean Promise, which guarantees that the room will be 'just right' upon arrival and is cleaned against a 50-point checklist.

This city is a hub for business and leisure travelers, and as they land in the Windy City, the avid hotel Chicago O’Hare – Des Plaines is sure to provide them with everything they need from a comfortable bed and a high-quality grab and go breakfast in the morning every time they stay with us.”

With this new location, avid hotels welcomes guests to America’s third-largest city, giving travelers the opportunity to discover its unique combination of big-city culture and Midwestern hospitality. Whether it’s a trip for meetings at the country’s largest convention center, or a day exploring a handful of the city’s 60 museums, guests who book a stay at the avid hotel Chicago O’Hare – Des Plaines are set to experience the signature features that propelled the brand’s growth and quickly gained a faithful following of avid hotels fans.

Karen Gilbride, VP of avid hotels and Atwell Suites, added: “With each new hotel opening, we are able to welcome travelers to experience avid hotels for the first time, as well as welcome back our passionate fans who eagerly look for our hotels wherever they go.
