Construction starts on Best Western hotel at Chicago Midway International

A groundbreaking ceremony was held yesterday (November 3) to mark the beginning of construction work for the new US$8m Best Western Hotel at Chicago Midway International Airport in Illinois, USA.

The three-story Chicago Vīb hotel will contain approximately 74 rooms and create more than 70 jobs during construction. When completed, the hotel will employ approximately 22 permanent members of staff.

Speaking at the ceremony, Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago, said, “Midway Airport is a vital economic engine for Chicago and this new hotel will enable it to meet its growing passenger traffic so it can continue to drive job creation and economic growth for our entire city. I want to thank Best Western and developer Balkrishna Patel for making this investment, which represents a tremendous vote of confidence in the future of Midway and the economic future of the entire city of Chicago.”

David Kong, president and CEO, Best Western Hotels & Resorts, said, “I am thrilled to be in Chicago breaking ground on Best Western’s exciting new boutique concept - Vīb. The Chicago hotel market is a perfect setting for this high energy, chic, urban hotel and will provide a contemporary hotel offering for today’s traveler.”
