Tribute Portfolio, part of Marriott International, together with Hickory Street Capital, a real estate development company owned by the Ricketts family, announced the opening of Hotel Zachary (3630 N Clark Street) in the heart of Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood on April 4. With 173 guestrooms, the hotel is located directly across the street from the iconic Wrigley Field and delivers a genuine Chicago neighborhood experience, whether you are a baseball fan, curious traveler or local-in-the know.
“We are proud to bring Hotel Zachary to the Lakeview neighborhood,” said Tom Ricketts, chairman of Hickory Street Capital. “We started this project more than two years ago as part of our commitment to enhance the community and look forward to welcoming guests from distances both near and far to explore all that this neighborhood has to offer year-round.”
Hotel Zachary, inspired by world-renowned Wrigley Field architect and Chicagoan, Zachary Taylor Davis, pays homage to its namesake through an effortlessly stylish blend of classic and modern design that creates a timeless aesthetic. To bring this vision to life, Hickory Street Capital tapped Studio K Creative to design the public spaces, including the formal entryway and expansive second floor lobby that features reception, The Bar at Hotel Zachary and Alma Room. Throughout these spaces, visitors will find furnishings, finishes, artwork, and amenities born right from Chicago’s architectural DNA, making each area feel like a curated home. A main focal wall features Davis’ original sketch of Wrigley Field, while the rest of the space is completed with found pieces, custom artwork, family photos, and Davis’ original blueprints and sketches.
“From inception, we set out to honor the hotel’s namesake, Zachary Taylor Davis, who defined this neighborhood more than a century ago,” said Eric Nordness, senior vice president of Hickory Street Capital. “We worked closely with Davis’ family throughout the entire development process to ensure his legacy was celebrated. Visitors will find curated and memorable experiences in the hotel’s innovative design, unique amenities and abundant culinary offerings when they visit this spring.”
Hotel Zachary offers guests an inviting and authentic “home base” with 173 guestrooms, including 20 suites, designed by Stantec Architecture. A warm color palette of rich blue accents provide a backdrop for an eclectic mix of furnishings. From an ivy-green headboard, pinstripe carpet, and a custom paneled armoire to a traditional leather wing chair and a carefully curated art program, the room design captures Davis’ progressive spirit with clever nods to baseball and the surrounding neighborhood.
The hotel is managed by Pivot Hotels & Resorts, and a member of the Tribute Portfolio, part of Marriott International.
