Rebranding the “Rock & Roll Days Inn”

Oxford Hotels & Resorts announced that The Days Inn Chicago has commenced renovations to transform and reposition the landmark 1920s Lincoln Park-Lakeview building into Hotel Versey.

Originally named The Diversey Arms, the building was the home to former jazz musician Bix Beiderbecke in 1925. In later years, the property was nicknamed the “Rock and Roll Days Inn” due to its popularity with rock star guests like Nirvana, the Goo Goo Dolls, Radiohead, Sheryl Crow, and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

In late spring 2017, the hotel will be rebranded as Hotel Versey, a 135-room hotel serving as a destination for families, the sports oriented, the business-minded, multicultural guests from around the world, and the LGBTQ community. The hotel will also feature a street-front restaurant and a series of retail businesses.
