Chicago just became even more stunning than usual! A sleek, 101-story building is now overpowering the skyline of the Windy City.
In fact, it is the largest structure on the planet designed by a female architect. New owners have taken over the property and opened the highly anticipated St. Regis hotel on its premises.
This is the latest opening under Marriott’s impressive portfolio of 30 recognizable brands across the globe.
St. Regis and JW Marriott are the cream of the crop under Marriott’s umbrella. This is the most recent St. Regis opening, and it does not disappoint in any way!
Not much time has passed since its Grand Opening, so there are not many reviews available online. However, the few that have come through are consistent 5 stars across the board.
One recent guest noted it was “outstanding”, adding they provide “authentic butler service for every room,” and they were impressed with its “fantastic location” near Lake Michigan.
Perfect Placement For A Chicago Getaway
Nestled in between some of Chicago’s other magnificent marvels is The St. Regis Chicago.
Beaming a bright blueish hue as a tribute to Lake Michigan and the Chicago River, this architectural masterpiece can’t be missed!
The Lakeshore East neighborhood is a hotspot for some of Chicago’s main attractions. Visitors can access the scenic Chicago River with ease.
Guests will always be within walking distance of premiere shopping and dining. It is Chicago after all!
The city’s top landmarks are nearby, so guests will not have to venture very far. Most notably, the always-popular Millennium Park.

If you haven’t taken a selfie at the famous Chicago Bean yet, this would be your chance!
Other than an always-crowded shiny metal bean, this park offers stunning lake views any time of year and is the best place to enjoy being outside.
Those who packed their walking shoes may want to head to the Magnificent Mile. From Chicago’s famous deep-dish pizza to the most luxury retailers, this 13-block region has it all!
Forget The Pizza And Hot Dogs, Don’t Leave The Hotel!
Many know Philadelphia has heated debates about who has the best cheesesteak. Chicago has the same debate for the best deep-dish pizza. Many look forward to Chicago’s famous hot dogs as well.
Although, true locals swear that deep dish isn’t the way to go. Tourists will often go to Portillo’s for the hot dogs or have the ultra-tough choice between Giordano’s or Gino’s East.
St. Regis will soon have such an amazing selection of restaurants on site that travelers may not want to leave the hotel grounds!
Miru will be located on the 11th floor with incredible views of Chicago’s waterfront and Navy Pier.
The restaurant will offer carefully selected small plates with Japanese flair, sushi and sashimi, as well as savory steak and seafood for the main course.
Designed to be paired with high-end wine and hand-selected sake, diners will know the high price of staying at a St. Regis is well worth the check.
That is if the check ever arrives! The dessert menu is created by the winner of School of Chocolate on Netflix.
Tre Dita is scheduled to open this Fall. It will be themed as a Tuscan steakhouse with an award-winning chef at the helm.
The menu will have delicious handmade pasta and juicy Italian steaks made the old-school way over a wood-fired grill.
Lastly, at The Drawing Room and Library, guests can sit back and enjoy many varieties of adult beverages, including 3 St. Regis’ take on a Bloody Mary.
Guests will want to check out the one-of-a-kind 1871 cocktail inspired by the historical Great Chicago Fire.
This libation is served in a smoking glass to represent one of Chicago’s biggest past events.
Time To Relax
It wouldn’t be a St. Regis hotel without an immaculate spa. Covering a whopping 12,000 square feet of space, guests will find everything under the sun for a relaxing day.
The St. Regis Spa is a blissful paradise in a concrete jungle. The spa offers top-notch champagne at the Celebration Bar before finding the right treatment for your needs.
Those looking for a runner’s high or just simply wanting to burn off some steam will love the state-of-the-art gym with amazing views of the city, especially on the sundeck.
Visitors will also have access to a yoga studio for some quiet time to burn away the day’s stresses.
