People who visit the Navy Pier in Chicago will soon be able to stay overnight as well, with the a new hotel rising seven stories above the eastern end of the landmark pier. Developers announced plans for a luxury 222 room Curio Collection by Hilton hotel right next to the Festival Hall. The hotel will offer amazing views of the skyline of Chicago as well as views of the lake. The Hotel will also offer a 30,000 square foot rooftop bar and restaurant with easy access to one of the city’s best attraction.
This development was first announced in 2016 and is set to begin construction next month and is expected to be completed by the summer of 2019. The hotel will be built on top of a two story vacant building which is currently a fun house. The Navy Pier has drawn up a construction plan so as not to interfere with visitors that currently come to visit the Navy Pier.
Once this beautiful hotel opens its doors, it will team up with the Navy Pier and to offer special events for guests of the hotel as well as visitors of the pier.
