Nearing the completion of a multiyear renovation, the Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare Hotel & Conference Center has added three new food and drink options, a new business center, two 16-seat boardrooms and a rent-by-the-hour concept meeting space. These improvements come on the heels of a two-year refurbishment of the hotel's 503 rooms and the remodeling of its 23,500-square-foot O'Hare International Ballroom. The redesigned property is 1.5 miles from O'Hare International Airport and across from the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill.
