Autograph Collection’s Hotel EMC2 Brings 2K Meeting Space to Chicago




hotel emc2 opening

The new Hotel EMC2 has opened in downtown Chicago, bringing with it nearly 2,000 square feet of flexible space for meeting planners. 

Led by General Manager Christine Wechter, the 21-story, 195-room hotel has two multi-function meeting and event spaces designed to honor Emmy Noether, one of the greatest mathematical minds of all time. The spaces have blackboard-style artwork and installations, as well as installations by British mathematician, musician, author, artist and Scientist in Residence at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago Dr. Eugenia Cheng

The hotel’s interiors were designed by the Rockwell Group, with architecture by KOO, to celebrate art and science. A typographic design greets guests upon arrival featuring the words of legendary Renaissance man Leonardo da Vinci: “Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses – learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.” Elsewhere in the hotel, design elements range from pieces of artwork by nearly a dozen artists that were directly commissioned by the developer, to guestrooms subtly influenced by 1920s laboratories with freestanding bathrooms at the center resembling a “wet lab.” Each room is adorned with rose gold fixtures gramophones that project music from any mobile device.

The hotel’s 120-seat contemporary American restaurant, the Albert (a nod to the scientist), presents seasonal, globally-inspired dishes from Executive Chef Brandon Brumback. Each dish on the opening menu spotlights a specific ingredient not found in any other preparation on the menu. Rebecca Royster, the hotel’s director of food and beverage, created the beverage menu, which celebrates both original and classic cocktails. At the center of the Albert, a custom glass chandelier-like structure known as the “infusary” pours house-made infused liquors. The space also has a 20-seat chef’s table.

Hotel EMC2 is a member of Marriott’s Autograph Collection of boutique hotels.
