The Ritz-Carlton Chicago is no longer managed by Four Seasons. Despite its name, the celebrated landmark hotel was known for many years as the The Ritz-Carlton Chicago (A Four Seasons Hotel) -- because of a license agreement. Dating from 1975, the Ritz-Carlton Chicago is now “a full participant in the Ritz-Carlton system”—as stated on the old website. As of August 1, Sage Hospitality has managed the four-star hotel.
The Ritz-Carlton Chicago occupies floors 15-30 of Water Tower Place (160 E. Pearson Street) on Chicago's Magnificent Mile. Over the next two years, the hotel is expected to undergo a renovation of its 435 guest rooms and suites. Facilities include a spa, restaurant, rooftop lounge, and 21,000 square feet of meeting facilities and event space.
Ritz-Carlton President Herve Humler was quoted as describing The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago as one of the “truly iconic luxury hotels in the United States.”
