Venue Spotlight: La Banque Hotel
By Kim Kislowski published January 10, 2018
If you’re in need of a smaller venue to host executives, look no further than La Banque Hotel in the heart of Homewood’s business district. Once the home of the old Homewood State Bank, it was converted to La Banque Hotel in 2013 and is now known for its luxurious accommodations in a unique setting.
With 18 luxury rooms, the boutique hotel has kept many of the original touches as a nod to its former banking days. Guests will notice safety deposit boxes used as a backdrop for the hotel bar, and the oldest original section of the building, from 1925, is now La Voute Bistro and Bar, the property’s French-inspired bistro. La Banque’s daily breakfast buffet is served in the main vault and is also a popular setting for private lunch and dinner events.
Perfect for Small Groups Looking for Luxury
La Banque’s private conference room accommodates 30 people with flexible table and seating arrangements. Equipped with the latest audio/visual equipment, the property can assist with arranging the perfect board meeting or corporate retreat setting for your group.
Work with the on-site catering team to provide your group with an intimate dining experience in either La Voute Bistro and Bar or in one of the hotel’s original vaults.
Luxury Accommodations With VIP Service
The property’s 18 rooms each have pillowtop mattresses, fine linens, robes and large workstations. Guest rooms also include refrigerators, safes, individual climate control and Keurig coffee makers with specialty coffees and teas; these amenities make your stay feel like home.
If you’re looking to play golf during your stay, you’ll receive complimentary shuttle service and discounted green fees at nearby Ravisloe Country Club, a highly-rated course open to the public for golf and events. It is the only golf course in Illinois designed by famed golf architect Donald Ross.
La Banque offers free parking and is within walking distance to numerous restaurants and attractions. Plus, the property is also easily accessible to Interstates 80, 57 and I-294. Only 20 miles from Midway Airport and 40 miles from Chicago O’Hare International Airport, the hotel is also one block from both the Amtrak and Metra Electric Line.
