The Hyatt Lodge at McDonald’s Campus is part of the McDonald’s world headquarters that also includes a training center and a corporate office building. The lodge was designed as a resort to reinforce the relaxed atmosphere of the training center. It provides accommodations for those attending training sessions and for corporate visitors. The lodge has 225 guest rooms and suites, two restaurants, a lounge with a rustic stone fireplace, two ballrooms, 44 meeting rooms, a swimming pool, and a fitness center.

The building’s U shaped plan wraps around a rare, 200 year old Ohio buckeye tree that stands in the forecourt. The arm of the building containing the function spaces abuts the south edge of a lake with a covered bridge connecting it to the training center.

The building is designed in a contemporary Prairie style with extensive areas of glass complemented by the use of brick and local field stone inside and out.
