A historic Chicago hotel is getting new life—and its old name back. Oxford Hotels & Resorts, the Chicago-based hotel management and branding affiliate of Oxford Capital Group, is redeveloping, repositioning and rebranding the former Hotel Indigo Chicago Downtown as part of a $9-million renovation. When the project is completed later this spring, the Gold Coast hotel will celebrate more than 90 years of history as the renamed Claridge House.
“Claridge House has been an integral part of the Gold Coast community for almost a century,” John W. Rutledge, founder, president and CEO of Oxford Hotels & Resorts and Oxford Capital Group, said in a statement. “We’re excited to reimagine and expand upon the hotel’s role in the city and neighborhood.”
