It was a distinguished time in Chicago’s history. The Gwen has a glorious past and an even more glorious future. Rooted in the history and heritage of downtown Chicago in the 1930’s, the Gwen serves as a city emblem of this golden era and yet is poised to bring luxury to a future generation of worldly travelers. This unmistakable inspiration comes to life with our historic fa ade, famously created by sculptress Gwen Lux in 1928. A female artisan making a mark in a predominantly 1930’s, male design city depicts and exciting atmosphere of change.
