Michigan Avenue’s newest hotel, the soon-to-open St. Jane Chicago, is now taking reservations for stays starting July 1.
Rooms are listed in the online reservation system for as low as $159 for certain days in July — not a bad price for a prime location in the historic Carbide and Carbon Building. For more than a decade, the art deco skyscraper at 230 N. Michigan Ave. had been home to the music-themed Hard Rock Hotel, which closed late last year to make way for St. Jane.
“The brand, in the past, very much catered to a transient feel — it had the familiarity of a brand that you could find anywhere in the world,” Robinson said. “This will be unique to the history of Chicago. Tasteful, refined. When you walk in, we’ve lowered the ceilings, opened up some of the walls. It feels like a 100-room boutique hotel.”Newly released photographs of model rooms show a sophisticated, contemporary design peppered with some eclectic accents, like funky lamps and modern art.
