The Vibe: Lobby life.
The Area: Fulton Market, a gentrified area on the Near West Side of Chicago with a vibrant offering of bars, restaurants, shops and cultural venues.
The DNA: Situated on a site once occupied by a meatpacker, the hotel features mid-century furniture features alongside bespoke wallpaper, panelled leather headboards, locally-sourced artwork and a selection of books curated by the ‘Hox Friends’. The rooftop pool allows guests the opportunity to grab a respite from the city’s hot and humid summer months, whilst those who are feeling peckish can chow down on fare by chef Stephanie Izard, her Peruvian-inspired restaurant Cabra Cevicheria also located on the rooftop, and serving a selection of fresh and uplifting Peruvian-inspired dishes. In addition Cira showcases a selection of Mediterranean flavours, whilst Lazy Bird – tucked away in the basement – is the spot to sip cocktails until late.
Suite-Me-Up: The Chicago outpost offers the usual Hoxton guestroom categories, ranging from Snug and Cosy to the larger Roomy, each reflecting the building’s industrial past with floor-to-ceiling windows and warehouse-style windows.
