Six stylish accommodations and a stellar whiskey collection share space within this restaurant-driven hotel.
Chicago visitors who book one of six trendy rooms at Longman & Eagle will enjoy the hotel’s urban atmosphere, as well as the many amenities this hip establishment provides. Each of the rooms features modern décor enhanced by extras such as Fisher Price or Sony cassette tape consoles with mix tapes and HD LCD televisions equipped with Apple TV, Netflix, rentals in the iTunes store and more. Furniture was designed by Robert McAdams and Jon Martin of Mode Carpentry. The rooms showcase site-specific artwork, such as a large wall installation by Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi, a speaker sculpture by Juan Angel Chavez and mixed-media pieces by Margaret Durow and Stephen Eichhorn. Foodies will enjoy the house restaurant, where chef Matthew Kerney’s constantly changing menu focuses on regional American fare crafted from local ingredients. The hotel’s self-proclaimed enthusiasm for drinking is evident at the Longman & Eagle bar, where the philosophy “whiskey for your mouth, not for our shelves” is evidenced with more than 300 whiskey selections available. Additional offerings in this casual and friendly atmosphere include bottled and draft beers, seasonal craft cocktails and eclectic spirits.
