Exterior of the Kaskaskia Hotel
Kaskaskia HotelEdit profile
The Hotel was originally constructed in 1915 and offered premium accommodations to visitors that flocked to the Illinois Valley for almost a century, and it is designated a historic building by the National Register of Historic Places. The Kaskaskia Hotel was closed in June 2001 due to its functionally obsolete mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. Structurally, the Kaskaskia is in excellent condition, so the renovation will use as much of the existing structure as possible. The exterior elevations and interior public spaces will be restored in accordance with the requirements of the Department of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. The obsolete mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems will be overhauled or replaced.
The renovated Hotel will include 94 guest rooms, a restaurant and bar, bistro, spa and fitness center, meeting spaces, library, boutique, and grand ballroom.
