Richard Branson’s Virgin Hotels brand, has finally opened its first hotel in Chicago, after a string of delays over the past three years.

There are 250 guest rooms, including 40 one-bedroom suites and two Penthouse Suites. Also, there is a restaurant helmed by Chicago chef Rick Gresh and will add four more restaurants and bars by April.

According to Branson, the hotel will be four-star and rates in Chicago will start from a relatively cheap $209.

The operator plans to open a second location in Nashville in 2016 and a third in New York City in 2017. Another two locations are set to be announced by the end of next year 2016, with Virgin hoping to have 20 hotels by 2025.
