Group & Events Coordinator

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.
