Booth Hansen was selected to execute the vision for the St. Jane hotel located in Chicago’s landmarked Carbide and Carbon Building. Originally completed in 1929 by the Burnham Brothers, the Carbide and Carbon’s gold-leaf tower is an Art Deco icon in the city.

St. Jane has 364 guest rooms which includes the 32 exclusive suites in the Tower. As with any landmarked buildings, the challenge was working to keep the historic details while creating one of Chicago’s new award winning hotels.

The welcoming entry includes all new finishes as well as an alcove of seating which was created with the addition of an enclosed vestibule. A complete renovation of the bar and restaurant with an open plan allows for natural light coming through from the street, which is not only an attraction for hotel guests, but a destination for the local community. Located directly along the front of the building is a double height window café styled with a European feel for the hotel patrons and local passersby. St. Jane has a beautiful new ballroom and meeting room making it a new focus for various events.

In keeping with the Art Deco theme with colors and patterns, the hotel rooms create a residential feel with elevated interiors. The Tower is a hotel within a hotel with a more sophisticated and high-end offering. The guests at the Tower have private access to The Nobel, a rooftop lounge, which includes a beautifully designed outdoor space with a rooftop bar and lounge seating overlooking Michigan Avenue and the river. As one of Chicago’s top hotels, St. Jane is a new focal point in Chicago.
