“Our entire development and operational team has worked hard over the last several years to transform this elegant and historic building into a beautiful luxury lifestyle hotel,” said John W. Rutledge, founder, president and CEO of Oxford Capital Group, LLC and its wholly owned management affiliate Oxford Hotels & Resorts.  “We are thrilled to finally be opening our doors to the public.”

Design

Inspired by the London Guarantee & Accident Building, the nearly 100-year old structure in which the hotel is located, LondonHouse Chicago uses its design tomemorialize the era in which the 23-floor tower was originally built. Oxford also worked closely with architecture firm Goettsch Partners to develop a new 22-story modernist glass tower designed to synchronize seamlessly with the 360 North Michigan Avenues building’s timeless Art Deco architecture. Simeone Deary Design Group, the hotel’s interior design firm, also incorporated its jazz themes subtly with stylish interior architectural materials blending classic and modern designs. Some materials and furniture were secured by the Getty’s Group procurement division.

“We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work closely with Oxford’s development team to concept and design the interiors for LondonHouse Chicago,” said Lisa Simeone, owner of Simeone Deary Design Group. “The Landmark nature of this gorgeous and iconic building, its 1920s original inception and its location at the historic site of Fort Dearborn provided a wealth of inspiration for our narrative and design. From flappers’ beaded dresses to industrial automobile interiors to generals’ uniforms and beyond, our modern-take on these design elements allowed us to be inspired by the past but ground ourselves in the present.”

London House’s elegant design aesthetic is further elevated through a custom art collection and unique prints curated by Indiewalls to visualize the property’s glamour while telling a story of opulence, intrigue, and history.

The stylish but casual Bridges Lobby Bar on the 2nd floor boasts broad views of the Chicago River and its bridges, as well as areas outfitted with plush, jewel-toned furniture and an antique mirror behind the bar to reflect the subtle curves of the river.

From ballrooms exuding sophistication and style to meeting spaces ideal for small corporate gatherings or private dinners, LondonHouse Chicago houses 25,000 square feet of modern and flexible function venues to meet all needs. The Juliette and Whistler ballrooms feature high ceilings, a column free open layout and design details inspired by the heavily beaded couture dresses worn in the 1920s. The hotel also offers traditional executive options, with a total of 10 meeting spaces and breakout rooms, as well as one boardroom, situated throughout the property. Located on the 22nd floor, atop the hotel, are four stylish private dining spaces of all sizes, including Etoile, which boasts a patio that can accommodate 80 for an outdoor reception.  Each private dining room offers an airy atmosphere and majestic river views. No matter the occasion, Executive Chef Riley Huddleston and his team personally cater to each host’s preferences to create a memorable menu.
