2018 Community Partner
Viceroy Chicago, located in the exclusive Gold Coast neighborhood, marks Viceroy’s first destination in the Windy City. Located at the site of the 1920s-era Cedar Hotel, among historic mansions and just steps to the Magnificent Mile and Lake Michigan, Viceroy Chicago offers a locally-inspired luxury experience with 180 guestrooms and suites. The hotel also offers 3,600 square feet of meeting and event space. Viceroy partnered with Chicago developer Convexity Properties, known for their work in re-imagining the region’s historic buildings, to keep the Cedar Hotel’s original brick and terra cotta façade for guests to experience the city’s storied architectural past.
The Human Resources team at Viceroy Chicago was familiar with CMAA’s Workforce Program prior to the hotel’s opening. As early as June of 2017, the team reached out to agency contacts and Chinese Mutual Aid Association’s James Smith Grattan immediately assisted in the hotel’s hiring needs.
Viceroy Chicago appreciates the care and passion of the candidates and the eff ort put forth by CMAA’s Workforce Program to meet the hospitality industry’s needs. 'We Are Hosts First and Always” is one of the hotel’s ideology statements and in partnership with CMAA, Viceroy seeks out those candidates that exemplify this statement. Viceroy Chicago looks forward to many more years of working together and is proud to assist CMAA’s mission.
