Two Customers Named to Top Hotels List

Congratulations to our chilled-water customers Virgin Hotel Chicago and LondonHouse Chicago for landing in the top 25 hotels in Chicago list in Condé Nast Traveler's 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards! We're proud to help you provide quality comfort for your guests from around the world.

LondonHouse Chicago opened in 2016, melding the city’s past with its future as a 452-room hotel. It combines a 1920s-era historic landmark with a modernist 22-story, all-glass tower that features unrivaled views of the city, the Chicago River and Lake Michigan.

LondonHouse has equipped all guest rooms and suites with INNCOM, a smart in-room HVAC and lighting system that adjusts room temperature and lighting as guests enter or leave their rooms. It not only saves energy and reduces the property’s carbon footprint, but also increases guest comfort.

The 250-room Virgin Hotel Chicago debuted in 2015, the company’s first venture into the U.S. market. The 27-story Art Deco building at 203 N. Wabash Ave. is known to many as the historic Old Dearborn Bank Building.

Virgin Hotel Chicago guests use an app called Lucy to control the room’s thermostat, order room service, check in, check out and even book future stays. Lucy also helps guests communicate with staff and figure out where to go to dinner and what to see around town.
