Luxury hotels are part of:

Trump
Waterview
Elysian
Aqua
Mandarian Oriental
Intercontinental

and now 560 N Fairbanks.


Are there really that many additional visitors to Chicago looking to spend $500+/night on a hotel room?
Don't forget Canyon Ranch Living - that hotel will no doubt be 5-star as well. And actually, Intercontinental, if it happens will probably be many years off - but at any rate, the current plan calls for a net reduction in number of hotel rooms...
