"They shared family photos, articles, birth certificates, letters and stories from Davis
and his immediate family," recalls Studio K senior designer Alicia Kelly. "There was so
much to choose from. We had all of the images scanned and cataloged as we determined
what we could use and where."
Those findings included portraits provided by one of the architect's great granddaughters that Herold says serve as the launching pad for much of the lobby artwork. A
consultant scanned the various visuals in high resolution, then had a local artist paint
over them, adding character to the main portrait at the lobby staircase, the custom wallcovering in the fireplace room and some of the other family photos throughout the
public spaces. "We wanted to transform the historic items into contemporary artworks
while keeping the integrity of the original pieces," says Herold.
That approach is prominent in the Alma Room restaurant. Based on a love letter from
Davis' wife, that venue's main art piece combines her personal letters, love poems from
the early 1900s and bright neon signage displaying the "Love Alma" signature with a
Cubs-blue overlay.
Yesteryear's artifacts make their way from the lobby into the hotel's 173 accommodations. A blueprint of Wrigley Field bearing Davis' signature serves as the centerpiece of
each guestroom, while the suites offer more insight into the architect's personal life with
family photos modernized by graffiti-like overlays. Built-in bookshelves, chess tables and
oak wardrobes evoke the feeling of a stately residence as a tribute to Davis' educated,
high-profile social status. Strategically placed plaid patterns recall his love of golf.
Lisa Chervinsky, senior hospitality designer at Stantec, points out that the park's
famed architect and the property's sports-centric location weren't the hotel's only
sources of inspiration. Channeling the Lakeview neighborhood's decidedly inviting vibe
into the rooms and suites was top priority.
"I'd tag the materials palette as 'Chicago residential.' In almost every vintage apartment
in the city, you find some combination of white hex floor tile, subway wall tile and oak

original sketch of Wrigley
Field, then enlarged and
printed it onto tiles to create
