The Olympia Companies and SMART Hotels are bringing a luxury boutique hotel to the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago.
The 98-room Sophy, to be managed by The Olympia Companies, will be located at the corner of 53rd Street and Dorchester Avenue in Chicago's South Side and will feature a bar, restaurant with al fresco dining and fitness center. Sophy is designed as a four-diamond luxury property to be engineered to achieve LEED Silver certification and will be a preferred hotel of the University of Chicago.
The name "Sophy" is rooted in the Greek word "sophia", meaning wisdom and dedication to excellence through the pursuit of knowledge. The name was inspired by the rich legacy of intellectual, artistic, and cultural innovation that is part of the fabric of the University of Chicago and Hyde Park.
