Project Team

After the successful completion of the Hyatt Place in Hyde Park several years prior we continued our relationship with Smart Hotels / Olympia Companies on their newest Chicago project the Sophy, also in Hyde Park. We are extremely proud to have been a part of the team to help deliver this custom boutique hotel. We worked closely with the development team, as an extension of their staff, throughout the construction phase including the FF&E and startup of all systems

The SOPHY made Travel + Leisure's It List of the World's Best New Hotels in 2019!

Cotter Consulting was a vital part of the success of the Sophy Hotel. They did a great job of holding contractors and consultants accountable for their deliverables through the construction phase and provided day to day supervision of FF&E installation. They provided us with invaluable “eyes and ears” on site which enabled us to respond to field issues in a timely manner.
