There’s a new kid on the block in Chicago’s bustling hotel scene, one that embraces innovative design and style with the 21st-century traveler in mind. Hyatt Centric The Loop Chicago is ideally situated in one of the Windy City’s most coveted areas and is poised to deliver a new kind of Hyatt experience.
Those looking to take in all that Chicago has to offer are lucky to find Hyatt Centric The Loop Chicago’s Director of Sales Daniel Lewellin on staff to steer them in the right direction. Whether it’s planning a visit to coincide with one of the city’s many festivals, or discovering an off-the-beaten-path neighborhood gay bar, Lewellin’s seven years in Chicago afford him an insider’s perspective that further elevates the hotel experience.
Lewellin’s industry career began at a small hotel in his hometown of Hinkley, Minnesota. Through the years he’s worked in virtually every aspect of the hospitality industry. His interest was piqued when the Hyatt Centric Chicago’s arrival was announced in February 2015.
“The brand encourages us to be ourselves, unscripted and genuine. There are so many [hotels] out there where everything you say or do is rehearsed. This isn’t the case with Hyatt Centric,” says Lewellin. “They encourage individuality and want us to interact with guests on a genuine and human level. We get to be creative and work outside the box, creating experiences for our guests that showcase Chicago from a local’s perspective.”
