In a recent article from Architectural Digest by author Kristine Hansen, 6 Boutique Hotels Owned by Famous Musicians and Infused With Their Style, it comes as no surprise that The Oxbow makes the list.
“The cute city of Eau Claire is home to a downtown splashed in murals and calls itself the Indie Capital of the Midwest. Along with the publisher of a local magazine and director of a local arts center, Vernon opened the Oxbow Hotel in 2016, reviving a midcentury motor lodge as a hip stay with 30 rooms. “
The Oxbow Hotel recently won a few design awards from the Minnesota Chapter of American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) – a HUGE honor. The property took first place in the Hospitality/Retail category, and a Judge’s Merit Award for Sustainable Design. We also received a Judge’s Merit Award for Collaborative Effort, which was awarded by the judges based on our entry and not actually an official category; they decided that it deserved the commendation. Cool stuff.
We’re very grateful for the accolades, and have so many people to thank: @shelterdesigns and hometown heroes @sds_architects, and further, this place wouldn’t be what it is without the help of Eaux Claires creative director Michael Brown, Tim Brudnicki of Eau Claire Woodworks, Keith Wyman of @concretepig, Kurt Gaber – @signguychippewafallswi, and Hal from @sds_architects to name a few.
