Plans are in the works to bring the Hilton brand to the Oak Brook Hills Resort later this year.

Portfolio Hotels & Resorts Inc., based in neighboring Westmont, took over management of the resort hotel in April. The hotel is accompanied by Willow Crest Golf Club, an 18-hole golf course.

Portfolio Hotels is planning renovations in two phases, starting with the public areas beginning this November through April 2015. Work on the guestrooms is planned for November 2014 through April 2016.

“Oak Brook Hills Resort is a Midwestern gem boasting 150 acres, stunning views, expansive wedding and event space, and an extraordinary staff,” Portfolio Hotels chief operating officer Graham Hershman said. “We’re delighted to add this property to our collection and look forward to creating a vibrant destination for social traditions in the local community.”

Portfolio Hotels manages properties in six states, including the Kinzie Hotel in Chicago.
