• Oxford Capital Group, LLC and Quadrum Global Announced Acquisition of Chicago’s Essex Inn

    POSTED November 21, 2014
Chicago’s historic Essex Hotel was recently acquired by Oxford Capital Group, LLC and Quadrum Global. This marks the 11th hotel investment in the Chicago area by Oxford and the second by Quadrum. Within the next year they plan to re-position Essex Hotel as an upscale lifestyle hotel.
"We are strong believers in Chicago and the continued attractiveness of Michigan Avenue real estate. We are also excited about the renewed and growing momentum of the burgeoning South Loop. We look forward to transforming this already distinctive asset," says John W. Rutledge, founder, president and CEO of Oxford Capital Group, LLC, the Chicago-based owner, developer, sponsor and manager. Essex Hotel Manager, LLC, owned by Oxford Capital, has taken over management.
"This is yet another joint project with Oxford Capital. Capitalizing on our partners' impressive track record in urban hospitality, we look forward to breathing a new life into Essex Inn and making it one of the new destinations in the city," said Quadrum's founder and CEO Oleg Pavlov.​
Currently, the hotel features 254 guest rooms, an all-season rooftop pool, a fitness center, sauna, garden deck, restaurant with bar, and multiple meeting rooms and boardrooms. 

SCS Global Services (SCS), a third-party environmental and sustainability certification, auditing, testing, and standards development, has launched its Zero Waste Standard, “Zero Waste for Events.”


The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 


Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.
