As Published Previously – Alderman Reilly Reports 4/16/2021
A number of residents have contacted Alderman Reilly’s office with concerns regarding the Eurostar Magnificent Mile Hotel, located at 660 North State Street.  
Alderman Reilly began discussing these concerns about downtown hotels with the Illinois Hotel Lodging Association (IHLA), the Department of Business Affairs (BACP), and the Chicago Police Department (CPD) in July, 2020. As some residents may know, several downtown hotels have reduced their rates to an all-time low because of the COVID-19 pandemic. These low rates, coupled with the limited hours and capacity of downtown entertainment venues, have transformed hotels into convenient alternatives to bars and restaurants.  
Eurostar Hotel was identified as a “hotspot” location based on numerous reports Alderman Reilly’s office received of large gatherings, guests throwing bottles from balconies, lighting fires on balconies, and not enforcing proper safety protocols or other COVID-19 restrictions. Most alarming was a recent media report that a CPD traffic stop in River North led to the arrests of 6 individuals for handgun possession; these individuals were all guests of the Eurostar Hotel.  
Because of the deleterious impact the business has had on the River North community, Alderman Reilly formally requested that the BACP and CPD conduct task force investigations of the Eurostar Hotel. 
Between March, 2020 and March, 2021, the BACP conducted 11 task force inspections at the hotel, and issued numerous citations for violations of Chicago Municipal Code and COVID-19 guidance.  
Based on BACP’s inspection results, and the Hotel’s continued disregard for public safety, the Law Department filed a public nuisance case against the Eurostar Hotel. Please CLICK HERE to review the list of charges, which relate to specific incidents of public nuisance and noncompliance with COVID guidelines. These charges will be resolved via the Mayor’s License Discipline Commission (MLDC) at a “virtual” hearing.
