The St. Regis Chicago is now open

i By May 26, 2023 No Comments

The St. Regis Chicago debuted this month in the Midwest city’s Lakeshore East neighborhood.

The 182-key property is located across 11 floors of the 101-storey building that is also home to the Residences at The St. Regis Chicago (393 luxury condominiums). Developed by Magellan Development Group and designed by Studio Gang, the world-renowned architecture and urban design practice led by Jeanne Gang, the building is the tallest in the world designed by a female architect.

Making its own mark on the city’s architectural landscape, The St. Regis Chicago features a unique design composed of an interconnected series of stacked, frustum-shapes that move rhythmically in and out of plane and extend to various heights. The tower’s crystalline form was inspired by nature with its facets of a shimmering gem and its gradient of green-blue glass that reflects the colors of Lake Michigan and the Chicago River.

KTGY Simeone Deary Design Group led the interiors for multiple public-facing areas of the hotel, along with the Presidential Suite and The St. Regis Spa, drawing inspiration from Chicago’s rich architectural history. Throughout the hotel’s public areas, spa, and Presidential Suite, metallic materials and colors, such as copper and rust, are interwoven with geometric, angular lines, offering a nod to The Great Chicago Fire and the city’s geographic interconnectivity of waterways, buildings, and green spaces.

The St. Regis Chicago’s 159 luxurious guestrooms and 33 exquisite suites were conceived by Gensler, and feature a thoughtfully curated palette of natural stone and wood finishes. All guests of the hotel will also enjoy the signature St. Regis Butler Service, a hallmark of the brand for more than a century.

The property also offers:

  • Eight event rooms over 13,414 square feet, including the 4,721-square-foot Astor Ballroom and the third floor, 3,000+ square-foot Executive Function Spaces, comprised of four executive meeting rooms plus pre-function space.
  • A selection of food and beverage spaces, including two dining experiences – Miru (an all-day dining venue on the 11th floor with a menu from Chef Hisanobu Osaka) and Tre Dita (a Tuscan steakhouse) from Chicago-based restaurant group, Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants; the Coffee Bar on Eleven; and The Drawing Room and Library lounges.
  • A dedicated Wellness Floor, which is home to the 12,000-square-foot The St. Regis Spa, a fully attended fitness center with state-of-the-art fitness equipment, outdoor sundeck, a heated indoor pool, yoga studio and two private fitness rooms.

“The debut of The St. Regis Chicago signals a significant milestone for the St. Regis brand as we grow our footprint in the United States and celebrate our first property in the American Midwest,” said George Fleck, vice-president and global brand leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts. “We are proud to open our doors in Chicago, an energetic and dynamic city that, like the St. Regis brand, is known for its rich history and pioneering design. Through The St. Regis Chicago we will debut a new icon within the city, sharing with our guests and local luminaries an architectural masterpiece that also represents the pinnacle of luxury hospitality today.”

The St. Regis Chicago offers easy access to the Chicago River and is a short walk from Millennium Park, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the city’s famed Magnificent Mile.
