The Hard Rock–turned–St. Jane is yet another new hotel, but this time the transformation inside Michigan Avenue’s landmark Carbide & Carbon Building is not just rebranding. See: cool California vibes in the cypress-scented white lobby, 364 elegantly simple rooms, and views knee-deep in a spectacular skyrise situation. French fare by Michelin-starred Donald Young and a top-notch Champagne selection add a twist at street-level Venteux. But it comes together best at Château Carbide, Pendry’s 24th-floor apex and the building’s first-ever rooftop bar, where rosé options galore, more skyline views, and summer breezes remind you this is Chicago 100 percent. From $234 a night. 230 N. Michigan Ave., Loop
