Game Room Attendant - FieldHouse Jones

Bedderman Lodging is the Chicago-based pioneer of alternative lodging and hyper-local hospitality. We operate three distinct properties in Chicago including Urban Holiday Lofts, Holiday Jones, FieldHouse Jones, and our first luxury boutique property, The Wheelhouse Hotel, is set to open this spring in Chicago's Wrigleyville neighborhood. While our company is small yet growing rapidly, our flexible room types and accommodations, innovative bed arrangements, first-of-their-kind vacation lofts, bespoke communal spaces, local food and drink, and stimulating art, provide a competitive edge among others in the industry and prove to disrupt the travel space.

In Spring 2017, FieldHouse Jones opened its doors to visiting tourists and locals alike at 312 W. Chestnut in the River North neighborhood of Chicago. The third neighborhood lodging concept from the Bedderman Lodging team, FieldHouse Jones is inspired by Chicago’s many field houses throughout the city’s diverse neighborhoods which provide a place for the local community to come together. Housed within the 11-story long, historic Borden Dairy Depot, and overlooking a lush private park in a once secret, but now bustling, warehouse district, FieldHouse Jones sits smack dab in the middle of Chicago’s premier Gold Coast, River North and Old Town neighborhoods. FieldHouse Jones provides an urban oasis for guests looking for a hyper-local way to stay in the Windy City. With a nod to sports nostalgia felt throughout the property, accented with artistic elements and vintage finds, FieldHouse Jones lends a local lodge ideal for large groups, international individuals, transient travelers, and families both big and small.
