McCormick Place Hotels to Serve as Headquarters for Staff and Media at 2024 Democratic National Convention

CHICAGO – The Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) announced that the Marriott Marquis Chicago and Hyatt Regency at McCormick Place, both connected to McCormick convention center, will serve as the official headquarter hotels for the 2024 Democratic National Convention in Chicago held August 19-22. The headquarter hotels are a designated base of operations for staff from the DNCC, Democratic National Committee, and Biden for President campaign, as well as media organizations and key leaders from coalition groups. 

“We are proud to partner with these key hotels and the union labor that powers them to make the McCormick Place our home base for convention week,” said DNCC Executive Director Alex Hornbrook. “We are confident each of these hotels will offer the best service, professionalism, and home to our guests during such an important week where Democrats across the country come together, tell our story to the American people, and renominate President Biden and Vice President Harris.”

“We are honored and excited for our campus hotels to serve as the headquarters for the 2024 Democratic National Convention,” said Larita Clark, CEO of the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority, owner of the Marriott Marquis Chicago, Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, and McCormick Place Convention Center. “With our 23 union partners and nearly 3,000 campus employees, we welcome the DNC to McCormick Place. We look forward to creating a spectacular event.”

The West Building at McCormick Place is where Democrats will conduct official party business, meetings, and briefings during convention week. McCormick Place uses union labor and is ADA accessible. 

The 2024 Democratic National Convention will offer more convenience than ever before for delegates, media, and guests. Official convention activities on the ground are consolidated to three main areas within a five-mile radius: the United Center for official proceedings and primetime programming, McCormick Place for daytime party business, and downtown hotels for delegates. In addition to Chicago’s robust public transit connecting all three areas, the DNCC will provide credentialed attendees transportation between contracted hotels and the United Center. 

Today’s announcement is the first of the DNCC housing assignments in the coming months, allocating thousands of rooms across our contracted hotels reserved for delegates, alternates, media, and members of the Democratic family. State delegations will be consolidated to eight hotels downtown, making it easier to share resources and provide convenient transportation.
