Colorado Springs, CO, September 22, 2015 – Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. The courts are polished. The trophy cases dusted off. But it’s more than a simple restoration—it’s a revelation. Inspired by the nineteenth century train sheds that were neighbors, Commune Hotels & Resorts has built a terrace in the sky overlooking Millennium Park and the greatest of the Great Lakes and a Game Room designed to amaze and amuse. 

 

The two-year Chicago Athletic Association restoration project is the result of a partnership between AJ Capital Partners, Geolo Capital, Agman Partners, Commune Hotels & Resorts, Chicago-based Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, and design firm Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors.

 

Commune Hotels & Resorts and CCI Systems specified Teledex E Series VoIP hotel phones as part of its restoration of the iconic Chicago Athletic Association, and conversion into a 241-room luxury lifestyle hotel.

 

“E Series phones communicate the look, and deliver the feature sets that our guests will appreciate,” states Jaime Gonzalez, Area IT Manager, Commune Hotels + Resorts. “Teledex OneTouch voice mail retrieval, and E Series guest service keys will help seamlessly connect guests to voice mail, and the many services and amenities that the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel has to offer, he concludes."

 

"CCI is pleased to participate in Commune Hotels and Resorts restoration of the historic Chicago Athletic Association," said CCI Chief Operating Officer, Rick Hurzeler. "The networks deployed by CCI support the Guest WiFi, Cetis and CCI’s voice solution at the property and the IPTV solution, as well as enhancing the cellular networks signals at the property to provide the guests at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel a premier communications experience," he adds.

 

Originally designed to meet the limited space and energy requirements of cruise ship cabins, Teledex E Series hotel phones are 40% smaller than standard guest room phones, which saves space on the desk and nightstand. The sophisticated, extra thin E Series pedestal chassis also complements the look of flat screen TVs in the guest room.

About the Chicago Athletic Hotel

Founded in 1890 during a period when athletic associations were created as places to foster business and social networking, the Chicago Athletic Association was started by a collection of prominent families whose names have become synonymous with American sport and athletic commerce, such as Wrigley, Comiskey and Spalding. The courts are polished. The trophy cases dusted off. But it’s more than a simple restoration—it’s a revelation. Inspired by the nineteenth century train sheds that were our neighbors, we’ve built a terrace in the sky overlooking Millennium Park and the greatest of the Great Lakes and a Game Room designed to amaze and amuse. All thanks in no small part to the Herculean efforts of the builders and craftsmen who have helped us realize our vision, in every painstaking detail. Today, Chicago Athletic’s past lives on amid Chicago Athletic Hotel restaurants, lounges and ballrooms where a high-spirited, club-like atmosphere prevails, seamlessly melding into shared histories, past and future.
