Check Out the View From the Top of the New LondonHouse Hotel

The old London Guarantee Building has a new rooftop deck

Harry Carmichael

The old London Guarantee Building, a 22-story high-rise built during the gilded age of Chicago, has been reborn as the LondonHouse hotel—a new 452-key hotel that features one of the greatest rooftop deck spaces in the city. The 23-story building stands over the corner of Michigan Avenue and Upper Wacker Drive and offers a direct view down the Chicago River towards the West Loop. Originally completed in 1923, the old building designed by Alfred S. Alschuler has been reworked by Chicago's Goettsch Partners and a new glassy addition that will serve as the hotel's main entrance and contain dozens of hotel rooms. Guests got a first look at the hotel's rooftop deck last night during the LondonHouse's soft opening and shared some stunning images across social media networks.
