Landmark Hotel Essex Will Rebrand with Le Méridien Flag

Oxford Hotels & Resorts, the Chicago-based hotel management affiliate of Oxford Capital Group, is rebranding Hotel Essex, the luxury lifestyle hotel located on Michigan Avenue adjacent to Grant Park, as Le Méridien Essex Chicago.

The landmark property, owned by an Oxford joint venture with Quadrum Global and managed by Oxford Hotels, will continue to operate as an independent hotel until it officially joins the Marriott Bonvoy family this summer.

“We’re always looking for ways to optimize the performance and value of our hotels and as leisure and business travel regains momentum this year, and in the years ahead, we felt combining forces with Le Méridien was a prudent, strategic move,” said Oxford Hotels CEO John Rutledge. “We look forward to our property becoming a top choice for Marriott Bonvoy members looking to explore Downtown Chicago and everything our beautiful city has to offer.”
