Hampton Inn Chicago Midway Airport Completes Lobby Renovation

Hotel implements Perfect Mix Lobby design to fit guests’ needs

BEDFORD PARK, Ill., March 29, 2013 – The Hampton Inn Chicago Midway Airport today announced the completion of its newly renovated lobby space. The layout follows the hotelier's Perfect Mix Lobby design, featuring unique amenities to enhance the Hampton guest experience.

"The new lobby offers just the right balance of different seating options to meet a variety of needs," said Anthony Marco, General Manager of the Hampton Inn Chicago Midway Airport. "Friends and family can hang out at the large community table, while business travelers can find a quiet corner to check emails and return calls."

Designed by Zimmerman Weintraub Associates, each zone of the lobby - the welcome desk, breakfast serving and dining areas - is intended to create an inviting space that ultimately becomes an extension of the guest room and promotes socialization.

A mix of comfort and utility seating styles are available to accommodate both business and leisure travelers. The community table with bar-height stools, for instance, offers space for groups to gather or for individuals to go to feel connected while traveling solo. Cozy lighting and contemporary original artwork complete the look, speaking to the spirit of the Hampton brand and the Bedford Park-area.

There are eight core design areas of the Hampton Inn Chicago Midway Airport's Perfect Mix Lobby, including: the front desk, coffee serving table, community table and pendant lighting, dining seating, soft seating, focal wall, breakfast serving area.
