 CHICAGO, IL — Real estate developer and investment firm Janko Group, LLC, has announced the completion and grand opening of the Hyatt House Chicago/Evanston, a new extended-stay hotel located at 1515 Chicago Ave. in downtown Evanston, Ill.

Developed by Deerfield, Ill.-based Janko Group and managed by Janko Hospitality, LLC, the 114-key hotel is the first new hotel in Evanston in 15 years and will provide guests the service and convenience of hotel living with the upscale/casual comforts of home. 

Janko Group closed the purchase of the centrally located infill-parcel in 2014, recognizing the potential of the under-improved site to fill demand for additional hospitality options in Evanston’s vibrant downtown district.

“Our approach to hospitality development has always been to analyze the unique aspects of the site and fill an unmet need in the market,” said Gary Janko, founder and CEO of Janko Group.

“In this case, we have a terrific central downtown location that will draw on this area’s strong business base and the Northwestern University community, not to mention Evanston’s appeal as a destination for leisure travelers.

" It’s a great fit for an extended stay concept like Hyatt House, and we’re proud to introduce the brand to Evanston and celebrate the grand opening of this vibrant new hotel.” 

The eight-story Hyatt House Evanston  is located just blocks from Northwestern University and Lake Michigan.
