ABOUT VOL. 39
When Kimpton began renovating the historic turn-of-the-century building that now houses The Kimpton Gray, we unearthed a trove of vintage encyclopedias. That's where the concept for Vol. 39 was born. Using the antique tomes as a decorative motif, Vol. 39's ambience evokes that of a dimly lit law library or a 1940s era smoking lounge, all tufted leather couches in cognac and charcoal hues. And our food and beverage service follows suit. Paying homage to the past seems only fitting in Chicago, a city with a history that commands respect--a history that speaks volumes.
Our mission is to be the best loved Hotel & Restaurant Company so regardless of position, we look for individuals who are passionate about providing genuine heartfelt care to our guest and employees.
