Oxford Capital Group officially opens the doors on its 13th hotel project in Chicago. Hotel Essex is the latest luxury hotel installment for Oxford Capital Group, LLC, located on Michigan Ave across from Grant Park. The Multi-Million Dollar project breathes new life into the iconic Michigan Avenue building.

Oxford worked closely with its joint venture partners at Quadrum Global to implement the strategic repositioning of the hotel, which closed in summer 2018 for renovations. Hotel Essex’s comprehensive redevelopment included the preservation and restoration of the building’s glass and steel structure and iconic rooftop “Essex Inn” sign, the replacement of all the major building systems, and the transformation of all guestrooms, public spaces, and interiors, bringing the property’s original midcentury modern aesthetic into the 21st century. Working closely with the development team, The Gettys Group led the hotel’s interior design, drawing on the building’s roots in the 1960s during the midst of the midcentury modern design movement.
