Residence Inn Chicago Downtown Updates Rooms With Murphy Beds

Chicago hotel unveils new Murphy beds with USB ports and lighting

CHICAGO, Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Residence Inn Chicago Hotel Downtown announces new updates to 50 of its rooms, with Murphy beds that offer extra room for small groups, friends and families sharing a room and getting away to Chicago for the weekend. During the day, each room features a cozy couch that easily transitions into a bed. The specially tailored beds come complete with an upgraded queen mattress, with built-in USB ports and lighting.

“Our new custom-built Murphy beds are amazing,” said Tommie Van, General Manager of the hotel in downtown Chicago. “During the day, it features a cozy couch and easily transitions to a bed boasting our upgraded queen mattress with built-in USB ports and lighting.”

Perfect for weekend travelers and tourists looking to explore Chicago, these hotel rooms for families and small groups create a space ideal to unwind during the day, with enough room for everyone to rest at night. Murphy beds are built for space-saving, creating extra floor space and expanding upon the livable space of each hotel room, like trundle beds.

Named for William Lawrence Murphy, the style of bed was invented while Murphy was wooing an opera singer but living in a one-room apartment. At the time it was frowned upon for a woman to enter a man's bedroom and the invention converted his bedroom into a parlor. Today its space-saving is used in homes, dormitories, apartments and hotels.

The Residence Inn’s hotel rooms and suites near Mag Mile offer impressive views, with work desks for connecting to the hotel’s Wi-Fi, custom furnishings and modern lighting. As one of the few Marriott properties that offer Murphy bed rooms, Residence Inn Chicago Downtown maximizes its space for guests to create rooms that feel like a home-away in the city.
