CHICAGO – EMBASSY SUITES

CHICAGO – EMBASSY SUITES

The Embassy Suites Chicago Downtown is an urban retreat steps from Magnificent Mile shopping. The VERSA WALL® was installed in the center of the hotels dramatic 11-story atrium. It replaced a waterfall that had been a staple at the hotel for years, but required some upgrading, so the property decided to do it even better and install a VERSA WALL®! The 720 sq.ft. VERSA WALL® has an elegant flowing design to the nearly 4,000 plants on the wall. This direct quotation from the manager of the hotel immediately after it was installed says it all, “The wall looks fantastic. When you stand close to the wall, you can feel the fresh oxygen coming out. Is this just my imagination or is this really happening? I know that plants absorb CO2 and give-out O2 but it is very pronounced….at least it is to me.” Actually it does! The Versa Wall produces oxygen equivalent to that of 16 fourteen foot tall trees! GSky’s VERSA WALL® are truly Green!
