CHICAGO – St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 30 brands, today announced the opening of The St. Regis Chicago. Developed by Magellan Development Group and designed by Studio Gang, the world-renowned 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.
“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 for 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.”
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 leading luxury retailers, dining destinations, and notable cultural landmarks such as Millennium Park, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the famed Magnificent Mile. 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 features 159 guestrooms and 33 suites across 11 floors.
