Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center opened its new executive lounge. The construction of the private retreat, located near the lobby, is part of the propertywide renovation occurring at the resort.
Intended to give the feel of a private residence, the executive lounge at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center was designed by architectural firm of O'Kelly + Kasprak. The design was inspired by the golden age of mid-20th century leisure, with statement pieces mixed with modern clean lines.
The lounge has historic artwork and details in the materials that embrace the property's past when the 150-acre sanctuary the hotel is located on was a polo field. There are also stones and brass highlights, as well as teak sculptural furniture.
The executive lounge also has complimentary Wi-Fi connectivity.
