The Godfrey Hotel Chicago (127 W. Huron at LaSalle) developed by Oxford Capital Group LLC in a joint venture with Quadrum Group, and managed by Oxford Hotels & Resorts, LLC quietly opened on February 1 to debut the highly-anticipated 16-story, 221 key hotel in Chicago’s energetic River North neighborhood. This property launches the luxury lifestyle brand in Chicago. The Godfrey Hotel Boston is under development and scheduled to open in 2015. Oxford is actively pursuing additional Godfrey Hotel opportunities in key major metro markets around the country. The hotel features a cubist-influenced, staggered truss design and a marble-clad, elliptical hotel lobby that mirrors the eclectic, chic surroundings of the River North Gallery Art scene.
“Our first guests and Chicagoans alike gave us a warm welcome over the opening weekend,” Oxford’s Senior Vice President of Operations and Area Manager George Jordan says. “We hope to provide a destination that allows guests to bring our tagline of ‘Discover Your Element’ to life.”
In addition to being walking distance from a number of top restaurants, shopping destinations, art galleries, and more, The Godfrey Hotel Chicago’s 15,000 square foot indoor|outdoor lounge and meeting space, I|O Urban Roofscape offers the largest 12-month outdoor lounge and bar space in Chicago. I|O Urban Roofscape also offers dramatic, south-facing skyline views which are unobstructed due to the unique design of the hotel’s retractable roof.
