The first St. Regis property has now opened in the American Midwest, serving as a welcome addition to the accommodation options available in the Windy City.

At The St. Regis Chicago, you can find decadent restaurants, a spa, and ample event space, ideally located near some of Chicago’s most notable landmarks.

Here are more details on what you can look forward to.

The St. Regis Chicago Design

Interestingly, the design of the hotel serves to commemorate The Great Chicago Fire. The devastating event caused one-third of the city’s population to become homeless in 1871. As a result of the fire, rumored to start in a barn just outside of the city, Chicago then experienced a surge of new, safer buildings.

The St. Regis Chicago aims to be another progressive building to add to the city’s legacy.

At 101 stories high, St. Regis Chicago is the tallest building designed by a female architect in the world.

The hotel’s interior designers point to The Great Fire through their use of metallic colors like rust and copper. Meanwhile, the exterior is a nod to the natural spaces in Chicago, with green-blue glass to remind visitors of Lake Michigan.

There are 159 guest rooms and 33 suites, each with a view of the Chicago skyline and featuring natural wooden finishes for maximum relaxation.

The hotel has 2 restaurants. Miru, located on the top floor, will serve Japanese small plates from Chef Hisanobu Osaka. Desserts and pastries are designed by Pastry Chef Juan Gutierrez, the winner of Netflix’s School of Chocolate.

Tre Dita is the hotel’s Italian steakhouse led by award-winning Chef Evan Funke. Here, guests can look forward to homemade pasta and Italian-style steaks.

There is also a 12,000-square foot spa, fitness center, indoor heated pool, and more amenities to enjoy.

The St. Regis Tradition Continues

St. Regis loyalists and newcomers alike can look forward to signature traditions at the new St. Regis Chicago.

Each guest will be served by the St. Regis butler, a staple of the brand and available for personalized service.

At The Drawing Room and Library, the hotel’s two lounge spaces, guests can experience afternoon tea and the evening champagne sabrage.

Lastly, the hotel’s signature Bloody Mary has been reimagined as The 1871. The drink is served in a smoking glass with local rye whiskey and a smoked salt rim — a final nod to The Great Chicago Fire.

How to Book

The St. Regis Chicago is available to book now. As a Marriott hotel, guests can redeem Marriott Bonvoy points at this hotel. As expected, rates are cheapest in the winter months, with rates as low as 50,000 points per night.

You can earn Marriott Bonvoy points for this redemption through various co-branded credit cards. Alternatively, you can earn and transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points or Amex Membership Rewards points to Marriott at a 1:1 ratio.
