Quinn says McCormick Place is already an asset to Illinois and the hotel will help bring in more business and fuel the state's economic recovery by putting more people to work.

Emanuel says the new hotel will further establish Chicago as the best destination for conventions and trade shows.

McCormick Place is the largest exhibition and meeting facility in North America with 2.6 million square feet of convention space.
