I’ve been following this project for years and am excited to have a St. Regis opening in my home city of Chicago. The hotel was announced in 2020 and saw several delays through the pandemic. It’s now opening today. I have a stay booked for later this week and will provide a full review then.

St Regis Building

In November 2020, Magellan Development Group LLC entered into an agreement with Marriott to build a St. Regis as part of the Vista Tower project. The entire development was changed to a St. Regis hotel and residences after this agreement was inked.

The building spans 101 floors and is the third tallest in Chicago. The hotel makes up the first 11 floors while the residences occupy floors 13 to 93. These condos range in price from $1 to $18.5 million. The St. Regis Chicago includes 191 guest rooms, an indoor pool with an outdoor terrace, a spa, a fitness center, a ballroom, and meeting rooms. There are also two restaurants: Miru and Tre Dita (this will open later in 2023). Lettuce Entertain You will manage both of the restaurants. (All photo credits: Marriott.)

Anthony’s Take: I’m excited for this one. I’ll report back after my stay with all of the details around the room (maybe a suite upgrade), breakfast, facilities, and more. Rates at the hotel are steep with the night I’m staying starting at $975 (I’m using a free night certificate from my Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant® American Express® Card).

Anthony’s Credit Card Pick: The Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant® American Express® Card is a must for frequent Marriott guests. Its annual fee is $650, but I have found that the dining credits, free night, and other benefits easily make this up. An excellent welcome bonus makes it even better. It will always have a place in my wallet. Learn more about the card. Rates & Fees.
