The 1920s-era hotel at the corner of Clark Street and Diversey Parkway, long a run-of-the-mill Days Inn, was sold in 2016 to Oxford Hotels & Resorts (the company behind Loop and River North boutique hotels like LondonHouse, the Godfrey and the Langham) and reopened in 2017 as Hotel Versey, with an updated design featuring bold artwork and Chicago iconography. The Days Inn had a reputation as a favorite of rising touring musicians in the 1980s and ’90s, and Versey’s decor includes acknowledgments of that history, along with nods to nearby draws like the World Series champion Chicago Cubs, Boystown, DePaul University and Halsted Street’s blues clubs.
