Is it Spring yet? The St. Jane Chicago is coming to the Windy City, and it’s poised to be one of the most buzzed-about hotels yet. While currently the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago, the Art Deco Carbide & Carbon building at 230 N. Michigan Ave., originally built in 1929, will transform into the 363-room St. Jane. As any Chicagoan knows, the building’s iconic green champagne bottle shape has brought a unique charm and character to the bustling River North neighborhood, and the St. Jane is set to carry on this beloved tradition.
The St. Jane is named after Jane Addams, one of the most pioneering Chicagoans, activist and the first American woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize. The new property is the brainchild of Aparium Hotel Group and Becker Ventures, and it’s being designed with Simeone Deary Design Group and Booth Hansen architects and pays homage to the Gilded Age of Chicagoan while staying modern and fresh. Guestrooms are set to feature sweeping views of the Chicago downtown skyline and feature luxurious amenities, as well as beautiful artwork from local Chicago artists.
Floors 25 and above will compose the Tower at St. Jane and include 33 lavish suites, and guests in The Tower will have access to a private and exclusive indoor and outdoor lounge on the 24th floor. A full service restaurant, cocktail bar, market cafe and extensive event space are all set to round out the luxury hotel, which will open its doors to the public in Spring 2018.
