Joe Perillo wins a battle over ‘Hotel Chicago,’ but war continues

February 13th, 2017

Score one for Joe Perillo.

An Illinois federal judge has ruled the Chicago businessman can keep the “Hotel Chicago” name on his little West Side hotel while a suit filed by a competitor under the Marriott Hotel brand moves forward.

Perillo’s “Hotel Chicago” in the city’s Medical District caters to families visiting nearby hospitals. A few miles away in River North, is the Mariott-branded “Hotel Chicago.” It’s a boutique hotel catering more toward tourists and formerly known as Hotel Sax.
