French influenced-luxury in a great central location.
This hotel opened in the former Oxford House in November 1998. The French-deco décor smacks of good taste and has that polished not-lived-in-yet look. Centrally located, the property overlooks the Chicago River and is a short stroll from Michigan Avenue. The Art Institute of Chicago, the Loop and Lake Michigan are within walking distance. The 192 luxuriously sized rooms and 22 suites sport a pistachio-and-cream color scheme that is incredibly soothing. All the expected amenities are here, along with morning coffee and an evening wine reception. If you're attached to your pet, you're welcome to bring it along; and if you're pining for companionship, the hotel will be happy to provide a goldfish to keep you company during your stay. South Water Kitchen, an American home-style restaurant, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
