Two hours west of Chicago, Oak Brook, IL was once home to Hamburger University, an expansive, high-end training facility for McDonalds.  This majestic 80-acre campus was recently converted into Hyatt Lodge, a hotel and conference center surrounded by verdant forest preserve alongside private, scenic Lake Fred.

Hyatt Lodge boasts nearly 50,000 square feet of event space, including a 299-seat auditorium, as well as gorgeous outdoor venue areas.  It’s the perfect destination for corporate gatherings, lavish weddings or other social events both large and intimate.  With exceptional service and stunning floor-to-ceiling views, Hyatt Lodge provides a memorable backdrop for your next special occasion. 

Hyatt Lodge now also features the hypoallergenic environment of Pure Rooms, the very best guest room experience for wellness-minded travelers.  Pure Rooms use purified air to eliminate contaminants and help promote self-improvement for both mind and body.  Other amenities like allergy-friendly bedding provide peace of mind and healthy living when you travel.

The wellness experience at Hyatt Lodge also extends to a spectacular spa and fitness complex to help you rejuvenate and be your best during your stay.  Partnering with Midtown Spa & Fitness, Hyatt Lodge offers state-of-the-art gym equipment along with fitness classes and a complete menu of spa treatments.  The unique indoor pool area includes three whirlpool tubs with a glass ceiling and wrap-around outdoor views.

When it’s time to eat, Water’s Edge serves upscale casual dining all day with patio seating and take-out options available.  For drinks and a late night menu, Hearth Lounge has housemade cocktails and an extensive beer and wine list, along with snacks, sandwiches and thin-crust pizzas.  Dine al fresco during the summer months or enjoy stunning views of the lake and surrounding forest in all four seasons.

Hyatt Lodge provides exceptional service with free WiFi, complimentary shuttle and concierge staff to make your stay welcoming and relaxing. Whether you’re planning your next event or just want a secluded destination for a family vacation or weekend getaway, choose Hyatt Lodge and stay in a Pure Room in Oak Brook.
