Arlo Hotels Opening First Midwest Location in Downtown Chicago

Arlo Hotels, a New York-based boutique hotel chain, is set to open its first Midwest location this week in the Atlantic Bank Building in downtown Chicago, the Chicago Business Journal reported. 

Located at 168 N. Michigan Ave., the 218-key hotel is a joint venture between real estate investment firms Oxford Capital Group and Quadrum Global. It will be the sixth hotel for Arlo, which currently operates three in New York and two in Miami. 

Oxford Capital Group and Oxford Hotels and Resorts founder, chairman and CEO John Rutledge said: “We are excited to be working, once again, with Quadrum Global to open Arlo Chicago. 

“With our combined expertise of owning and operating luxury lifestyle hotels that provide travelers a high-level of service with a local flair, we are confident that Arlo Chicago will be a sought-after hotel for those travelling to Chicago.” The Arlo will be Oxford’s 16th Chicago hotel.
