Newly renovated, rebranded Willowbrook hotel reopens
WILLOWBROOK -- The strategic location made a former Holiday Inn in Willowbrook the perfect site for the first Delta Hotels by Marriott hotel in Illinois, the company said.
After more than $10 million and three years of extensive renovations, the Delta Hotels by Marriott Chicago Willowbrook and Willby's Restaurant & Bar opened in 2020 during the pandemic. Now that the pandemic is nearing its end and business is picking up, hotel management is thrilled to announce the official grand reopening to travelers, groups, diners and the public alike.
"We are thrilled to relaunch the Delta Hotels brand to Willowbrook. With our location close to Midway and major employers like Argonne National Laboratory, CNH Industries and the College of DuPage, we expect the hotel to resonate with those traveling on business or pleasure," said Mary Garcia, general manager, Delta Hotels by Marriott Chicago Willowbrook.
Nearly 6,500 businesses -- ranging from small firms to large industrial and financial organizations -- reside within Willowbrook and the surrounding villages of Darien and Burr Ridge. Within the last month the hotel has experienced an uptick in guest stays and food and beverage sales due to the increase in business and leisure activities, such as local business meetings, amateur sports tournaments and travel via Midway Airport.
"This location also used to host events like weekly and holiday brunches for the community," Garcia said. "We plan to continue traditions like these and make new ones in our completely renovated hotel and the new Willby's Restaurant & Bar."
One of the newest brands by Marriot, the Delta Hotel features 165 guest rooms, an outdoor swimming pool (opening 2022), more than 11,000 square feet of function space, a 24-hour fitness center, and the latest in-room entertainment technology, allowing guests to access their Hulu and Netflix accounts, as well as YouTube, Amazon Prime and HBO Go, through the Smart TV.
