Harper Court Partners released some details this morning about the hotel operator for Hyde Park's Harper Court. Olympia Chicago LLC and Smart Hotels, a company that specializes in campus hotels, have been selected to build and operate Hyatt Place Chicago @ Hyde Park. The six-story, 130-room hotel will be located on Harper, just north of 52nd Place, according to Christopher Dillion from Vermilion Development. The hotel, which is set to open in 2013, will feature underground parking, a restaurant, wine bar, pool, and fitness facilities, according to the press release. Hartshorne Plunkard is the master designer of Harper Court, but Smart/Olympia will be bringing Legat Architects in to design the hotel. We don't have any renderings to share just yet, but Dillion says that more details about the hotel will be discussed at a TIF meeting on Monday at 6:30PM at the Hyde Park Art Center.
