Imagine yourself in 1930's Chicago. Chicago celebrated its
centennial by hosting the world's fair in 1933. The speakeasies and
gangsters were thriving. 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 faade, 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. The building has
been home to many stories in an illustrious past.
