Located in the upscale Gold Coast neighborhood, the owners of the revived Claridge House hired The Gettys Group Companies to provide a fresh and local feel to the hotel’s renovation. The Gettys Interiors team was excited to bring its design expertise to the public areas and guestrooms of the 165 key space. The design for the hotel showcases an environment that is intimate and uniquely Gold Coast, while also invoking a great Chicago residence. The implementation of old and new concepts within the hotel provides guests with a home away from home.
Ideally situated within walking distance from some of the city’s best shopping and dining, Claridge House delivers a sophistication that is as inviting as it is refined. The lobby features a custom chandelier comprised of silk-wrapped rings. Custom millwork anchors the lobby with an elevated linear fireplace wrapped in marble and flanked in blonde oak with exquisite definition. Reinforcing the hotel’s residential atmosphere, the Gettys Interiors team added accents and personal touches including collected art and artifacts to emulate a residential living room. An art installation features travel photos from around the world that were gathered from hotel and project team members.
Juniper Spirits & Oysters, the property’s new restaurant and lobby bar, offers guests delectably prepared seafood fare in a chic atmosphere designed to invite locals and travelers alike to sip, nibble and unwind.
Guestrooms, each uniquely inspired by a pied-á-terre theme, were curated to offer a sophisticated city apartment feel. Images of London were hung proudly in each room, reminding guests of the origins of the name Claridge.
