St. Regis Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of The St. Regis Chicago. Designed by Studio Gang, the architecture and urban design practice led by Jeanne Gang, the 101-story tower is the tallest building in the world designed by a female architect.
Located in the Lakeshore East neighborhood, The St. Regis Chicago offers easy access to the Chicago River and is a short walk from the city’s shopping, dining destinations and cultural landmarks, such as Millennium Park, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Magnificent Mile. The hotel features a design composed of an interconnected series of stacked, frustum shapes, while its gradient of green-blue glass reflects the colors of Lake Michigan and the Chicago River.
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. The St. Regis Chicago houses 159 guestrooms and 33 suites across 11 floors. All guests will enjoy the signature St. Regis Butler Service, which presents personalized offerings such as garment pressing and packing services.
Chicago-based restaurant group Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants will debut two dining experiences at The St. Regis Chicago. At Miru, an all-day dining venue on the 11th floor, the menu by Chef Hisanobu Osaka is paired with wine and sake, while the desserts and pastries are led by Pastry Chef Juan Gutierrez, winner of Netflix’s “School of Chocolate.” The venue offers a private and semi-private dining spaces, as well as two terraces offering views of Lake Michigan, Navy Pier and the Chicago River. The Coffee Bar on Eleven is also open daily serving a selection of grab-and-go breakfast items and pastries. Tre Dita by Chef Evan Funke is slated to debut in fall 2023. The restaurant, Chef Funke’s first outside of Los Angeles, will be designed by David Collins Studio.
Throughout the food and beverage spaces—including The Drawing Room and Library lounge areas—guests will experience three signature St. Regis brand rituals, including Afternoon Tea, evening Champagne Sabrage, and the hotel’s Chicago-inspired twist on the brand’s signature libation, the Bloody Mary.
The St. Regis Spa spans 12,000 square feet of the Wellness Floor. Guests can sip champagne at the Celebration Bar, then connect in the Iridium Lounge before indulging in a spa treatment. The fitness center offers lifting and cardio equipment, an outdoor sundeck, yoga studio and two private fitness rooms. A heated indoor pool offers views of the city and Lake Michigan.
The hotel offers more than 1,000 square feet of event spaces. The 4,721-square-foot Astor Ballroom can host receptions for up to 500 guests and the third floor Executive Function Spaces will house four executive meeting rooms plus pre-function space over 3,000 square feet.
The St. Regis Chicago hotel is adjacent to the Residences at The St. Regis Chicago, which consists of 393 condominiums, offering residents access to all of the hotel amenities in addition to its own resident-only amenity floor.
