Oxford Capital Group, LLC and Oxford Hotels & Resorts, LLC announce the opening of the The Godfrey Hotel Hollywood, located at 1400 Cahuenga Boulevard (one block south of Sunset Boulevard), a 220-room luxury lifestyle hotel with food & beverage outlets including SoCal-centric restaurant and bar ALK, a courtyard event space with seven adjacent hospitality suites and the 12,000 square foot I|O rooftop, featuring a 70-foot projection mapping video wall, two bars, swimming pool, fire pits and water feature.
Now open to the public, this is Oxford’s 10th hotel in California and 12th in the western region. “We are excited about the growth of the Godfrey brand and our continued national expansion,” says John W. Rutledge, founder, chairman, and CEO of Oxford Capital Group, LLC and Oxford Hotels & Resorts, LLC. “Our confidence in the dynamism of the emerging Hollywood submarket makes us particularly enthusiastic about this project”.
“We are delighted to be opening our doors in what many view as the new center of gravity in Hollywood, coinciding with other newly built neighboring properties, including the state-of-the-art Netflix on Vine campus and luxury apartment towers Jardine and The Rise Hollywood,” says Sarang Peruri, Chief Operating Officer of Oxford Capital Group, LLC and Partner of Oxford Hotels & Resorts, LLC. “The Godfrey Hotel’s positioning is synergistic with nearby entertainment driven offices/studios, luxury apartments and extensive retail, restaurants, and nightlife in and around Cahuenga Blvd.”
The property combines The Godfrey Hotel brand ethos—known for its vibrant nightlife, dynamic restaurants, sophisticated architecture, cutting-edge technology, high touch service culture, and prime location—with a captivating yet authentic interior design and art harkening back to Old Hollywood. “The hotel is truly central to Hollywood – surrounded by numerous dining options beloved by locals and world-famous attractions and entertainment venues ideal for visitors looking for a quintessential LA experience,” says George Jordan, president of Oxford Hotels & Resorts, LLC.
The hotel’s curated art program and immersive interior design set the stage for ultimate Hollywood moments.
