Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 24, 2014
Kimpton’s Hotel Allegro in Chicago is revealing the renovation of two new event spaces – Crescendo and The Green Room. The redesign was an opportunity to take existing space in the hotel that was not being utilized to its fullest capacity and provide guests with more unique and fresh options for meetings and events. This is the first of two phases of renovations for Hotel Allegro, a contemporary 483-room boutique-style hotel in the heart of Chicago’s loop area and theater district. The second phase is planned for early 2015 and will consist of renovations to the hotel’s living room.
The new design, lead by the award-winning Simeone Deary Design Group, was inspired by the feeling of splendor and grandeur of the theatre experience and celebrates the movement and whimsical rhythms associated with music and art. This design concept is also a nod to the hotel’s namesake tying in the true meaning of the term “allegro” which refers to the tempo of music.
“The redesign has infused a breath of fresh air into the hotel giving our guests a more inviting and warm ambiance to take advantage of for business meetings and social events,” said Mary Perino-Fleming, hotel manager of Hotel Allegro.
Crescendo, positioned at the top of a dramatic entryway, was aptly named and designed to reflect the height of excitement and energy of a musical score. As guests ascend the grand staircase, they experience a majestic ambience from the glittering chandeliers to the story-telling artwork ascending the focal wall and traversing the ceiling with large-scale feathers. With its sleek seating and polished décor, Crescendo feels energetic yet glamorous. While this space is considered a branch of the living room, this charming vignette can also be closed off for a completely private event for up to 18 guests, perfect for private dining or cocktail receptions.
The Green Room
Continuing up the grand staircase to the level directly above Crescendo, the newly designed Green Room is characterized by a slower tempo of music. Capturing a quiet elegance, the 2,884 square feet of meeting and event space is treated as an extension of the hotel’s premier event venue, the Walnut Room, accentuating the harmony of architectural detail reminiscent of the original time period of the building. Design details include a coffered ceiling, a grid-like custom carpet design and anthropomorphic artwork all of which evoke drama, sophistication and humor in the space.
Upon entry, the pre-function area is warm, elegant and inviting complete with a fireplace, hardwood floors and French doors. Just beyond the French doors you’ll find ample space for a meeting of up to 170 seated or reception style event for up to 250 that is fully equipped with a state-of-the-art sound system, carpeting and windows. To the left of the large space is another area housing a handcrafted rectangular wood table and modern light fixture overhead as the focal point of the room. This space can be closed off for a smaller meeting of up to eight or used as an extension of the larger event space for various functions including food and beverage stations or a gift bag retrieval area.
Hotel Allegro is currently running several meeting promotions including the “Slumber in the City Group Promotion” offering seven percent off the master bill when a meeting or group is booked between now and September 1, 2014 and October 1 – November 20, 2014. Not only that, but a special perk is included in this package when you book. Additionally, groups that want to get a jump start on 2015 meeting plans can enjoy special group rates at the Allegro from only $99/night for meetings taking place between January 1 – March 31, 2015.
