HAMPTON INN CHICAGO MICHIGAN AVENUE Displays Classic 1928 FORD MODEL “A” To Pay Tribute To Historic Chicago Motor Club Building


Hampton Inn Chicago Michigan Avenue, located in the Chicago Motor Club building at 68 E. Wacker Place,  installed an original 1928 Ford Model A on the second floor of the 33-foot high lobby on April 2nd. The car’s arrival is a key milestone in preparation for the hotel’s Grand Opening in May.

In addition to the 1928 Ford Model A, the lobby will showcase the original 29-foot mural of popular road destinations, painted by John Warner Norton, which was carefully preserved throughout the renovation to pay homage to the building’s rich historical significance and contribution to U.S. car culture.

The installation event will also kick off the official social media naming contest for the car. Enthusiasts are encouraged to submit their name entry through the hotel’s Facebook (www.facebook.com/ChicagoHampton) or Twitter (www.twitter.com/ChicagoHampton) accounts using the hashtag #1928HamptonInnspiration. The winner will receive 200,000 Hilton HHonors™ Points and a custom engraved plaque with their name to be placed near the car.
