The transformation of the London Guarantee Building into the LondonHouse Hotel is one of the most ambitious projects of Chicago's recent hotel boom. In 2013, Oxford Capital Group acquired and began to restore the Neo-Classical and Art Deco high-rise situated on the former site of Fort Dearborn. A 22-story glass tower designed by Goettsch Partners was added on a previously unoccupied property on the Wacker Drive side of the building. The resulting 452-room LondonHouse hotel opened in May 2016. It includes 25,000 square feet of event space and a rooftop bar with river views that are out of this world.
