Hotel operator plans to grow local portfolio
By: Alby Gallun November 23, 2010


...Construction of the downtown Staybridge Suites began a few years ago, but the 216-room project at 127 W. Huron St. has been stalled since 2008, when it was hit with a foreclosure suit. Mr. Anhut expects a resolution soon.

“We're optimistic it will move forward under new ownership,” he says.

Corporex seeks control of stalled Staybridge hotel project in River North
By: Alby Gallun December 06, 2010


...Corporex Cos. LLC, a suburban Cincinnati investment firm, has acquired a roughly $8-million claim from the general contractor on the development at 127 W. Huron St., slated to be a 216-room Staybridge Suites extended-stay hotel. The sale represents a key step out of the grave for the project, one of two big unfinished hotels that ran out of money during the bust and now blot the downtown landscape.

“It is their hope that, in fairly short order, the case can be resolved and construction can resume,” says David Neff, Corporex's attorney in the Chicago office of Perkins Coie LLP.

New investor moves in on failed River North hotel
By: Alby Gallun June 08, 2011

(Crain's) — A Chicago hotel investor has entered the legal fracas over a failed River North hotel development, a key step that could bring the 16-story project closer to completion — or escalate the battle for control of it.

A venture led by Oxford Capital Group LLC has acquired the construction loan on the unfinished building at 127 W. Huron St., which was supposed to be a 216-room Staybridge Suites hotel but has been tied up in litigation since October 2008, when it was hit with a $19.8-million foreclosure suit from the construction lender

According to Dan at SSP, construction is likely to start in a few weeks.

The Godfrey Hotel Chicago: New For 2013



As if we would be surprised by another new hotel popping up in Chicago, we learned last week that Oxford Capital Group and Cube Capital will open the new Godfrey Hotel Chicago in 2013. Located in River North at LaSalle and Huron, the 221-room Godfrey is the latest new concept and lifestyle hotel scheduled to open in Chicago.

The would-be hotel is already well connected, too. Not only is it adjacent to Hotel Felix (also led by Oxford), Godfrey is taking over the incomplete, cubist-inspired shell of a building originally carved out for a Staybridge Suites (which never came to be). Now after four years in limbo, that 16-story structure designed by Valerio Dewalt Train will finally have its day in 2013.

According to Oxford, Godfrey will be defined as an independent, upscale, lifestyle hotel with with 194 generously-sized studio suites and 27 one-bedroom suites, a chef-driven restaurant and bar, and -- wait for it -- a 12,000 square-foot indoor/outdoor rooftop lounge. Guests will also have great city views from their rooms at Godfrey, but even cooler is the fact that this distinctly modern building will add its own flair to Chicago's stunning skyline.

Godfrey Hotel Chicago joins a slew of other big Chicago hotel openings slated for 2013, including Richard Branson's debut Virgin Hotel, Aloft, and Langham.
