Chicago's first JW Marriott Hotel, 151 W. Adams, celebrated its grand opening hosted by Chairman and CEO, J.W. Marriott, Jr. The event featured exclusive live performances by Emmy Rossum, singer/songwriter and star of Showtime's new Chicago-based series "Shameless", as well as some of our city's greatest talent including performances by The Joffrey Ballet and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. DJ Kiss performed throughout the evening for 400 guests. Attendees also included Emmy's "Shameless" co-star Ethan Cutkosky, renowned architect Lucien Lagrange plus everyone's favorite, Bill Kurtis.
I was fortunate to spend some time in the hotel's world class spa, VALEO, recently taping a segment for Catie Keogh's NBC's 24/7 and I will tell you it's one of the best and most beautiful I've seen!!! Shea Vaugh, Vince's beautiful mom, is the fitness trainer there too!
Congrats to all concerned for bringing this beautiful hotel to Chicago!!!
