Apartment Host

The Hoxton, Chicago, Illinois

Our story

Just like our doors, our minds are open too. Since we opened our first hotel in Shoreditch, London in 2006, we’ve never just been about offering a bed for the night. We want to be more than that, providing a place where guests can hang out alongside the locals and submerse themselves in the neighborhood with vibrant, welcoming public spaces. Then there's our eclectic program of monthly events where we bring the outside in, working with local creatives to curate events unique to each location.


We proved that style didn’t need to be sacrificed for value and honest pricing is still very much at the heart of everything we do. We opened our second London hotel in 2014, followed by Amsterdam in 2015, Paris in 2017, Williamsburg and Portland in 2018 with Los Angeles, and Chicago coming soon. Each hotel has its own character; however, you’ll find the familiar Hoxton Hustle, incorporating the uniqueness of their neighborhoods using local designers, artists, and illustrators for everything from interiors to wallpaper, art and neighborhood guides.


The Hoxton, Chicago will be our third hotel in North America, located in the Fulton Market district, an area that is fast evolving and buzzing with a whole host of new stores, inspiring start-ups, swishy global HQs and an exciting bar and restaurants scene to match. It’s where you want to be in Chi-Town.


The hotel will have 182 bedrooms spread over seven floors, along with a lively open-door lobby, three restaurants and bars, a rooftop swimming pool with views across the city, a retail pop-up, and The Apartment, our unique meetings and events space. Add to all that our two floors of office space for those who are more work than play.

The details

You’ll be based primarily in the Apartment, our meeting space at The Hoxton, Chicago, as well as spending some time at Reception supporting the team when needed.  You’ll be reporting to our Front Office Manager, and you will be the point person for all events, activations, and meetings within the Apartment from start to finish.


We’re not really a strict job description kind of place – we all roll our sleeves up and get stuck in wherever needed – but here's an idea of how we see the role...


  • Be the first smile our visitors see when they rock up at the Apartment. You’ll help meet and greet all visitors and show them around.
  • You’ll work with the Meeting & Events Sales team to make sure that guests have everything they need for their events
  • You’ll be the main contact for all guests of the Apartment, and help with all their requests
  • You’ll make sure the Pantry is stocked, events are set up as booked, and rooms are always kept tidy
  • You’ll help with event billing and check in and out for events
  • We’re in it together – you’ll work closely with the Reception, Rooms, and Restaurants teams to make sure the overall operation is running smoothly.

What’s in it for you…

  • To play a role in opening the first chapter in the Hoxton’s North American story
  • A chance to work with a creative team
  • You’ll be engaging the space in imaginative ways
  • The opportunity to challenge the norm and work in an environment that is both creative and rewarding
  • The chance to join a growing company at an exciting time in the business, with a significant opportunity for development

About you

  • You have some events coordination and hospitality experience
  • You execute. You get things done
  • You’re a natural host and can make guests and team members feel at home in our hotel
  • Service is at the heart of what your do; you're imaginative when it comes to creating experiences
  • Highly organized and detail orientated, someone you can rely on to know the answers, or where to find them
  • Keen to take ownership of and pride in your work, a roll-up-your-sleeves attitude to seeing work through and delivering results
  • Ability to learn quickly and adapt to The Hoxton’s unique culture
  • You are creatively ambitious and culturally curious; able to see ideas through from their inception to reality
  • You jump out of bed every morning, fizzing with energy and jazzed about what you’re doing today
  • If we get stuck in a lift with you, we’ll get along nicely and have a laugh along the way
