Less than two years after being bought out of foreclosure, the Gold Coast’s Hotel Indigo is getting a new name and restaurant as part of a $9 million renovation.
The hotel at 1244 N. Dearborn Parkway in May will change its name to the Claridge House, according to Oxford Hotels & Resorts, which will manage it.
The rebranding brings the 165-room hotel back to its origins.
Designed by Walter Ahlschlager, the building opened in 1923 as the Claridge Hotel. The initials “CH” and the Claridge name remain inscribed on the exterior of the 12-story structure.
