Interior Design, the leading global design publication, has honoured Four Seasons Hotel Chicago as a Best of Year winner in the hotel design category. Interior Design's Best of Year is the design industry's premier awards program and has become the ultimate measure of excellence honouring the most significant work of the year. The recent redesign of the Hotel was completed by women-owned design firm Rottet Studio.

“We’re honoured to be recognized along with awe-inspiring design projects around the globe,” says Stephen Wancha, Four Seasons Hotel Chicago General Manager. “Our reimagined property is a stunning backdrop for locals and global travellers to revel in the essence of Chicago. We are thrilled to continue our evolution and offer a new era of luxury hospitality.”

The multi-million-dollar renovation fully transformed the iconic Hotel, which celebrates 34 years of best-in-class service next month. Rottet’s redesign sets the tone for an oasis of luxury nestled above the bustling Magnificent Mile, featuring the perfect blend of relaxation and a spirited vibrancy unique to Chicago.

Rottet was charged with updating 23,000 square feet (2,100 square metres) of public areas on the 7th and 8th floor and suites on the 46th floor. In the lobby, walls were moved to create a more open space. There is an emphasis on contemporary bright colours and reflective surfaces with a shimmering installation of 5,000 gold-tinted leaves by Unit Five Studio hung from the ceiling.

“It was a great privilege working in one of the world’s greatest cities for architecture, food and culture then taking that as inspiration to reflect what is so incredible about the Four Seasons brand to create a design experience that is completely new and totally unique to Chicago,” says Richard Riveire, Founding Principal of Rottet Studio.

In addition to the Hotel redesign, Rottet’s exceptional design team is leading the renovation of the Hotel’s wellness offerings on the eighth floor. A revitalized Spa, Pool and Fitness Center will open June 1, 2023.
