One of Chicago’s most iconic landmarks, Navy Pier, is opening its first-ever hotel this Thursday, March 18. 

Hilton will introduce the Sable hotel to the city, making it the 100th property in the Curio Collection by Hilton. The hotel gets its name “Sable” from a vessel, the USS Sable, that served as the pier's homeport during WWII. 

The opening of this one-of-a-kind destination hotel comes as the city prepares to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and guests from the region prepare to resume travel, according to officials. 

"We have long envisioned a hotel transforming this iconic cultural destination into a place where overnight guests can experience the most spectacular views of our lakefront and city," Marilynn Gardner, president and CEO of Navy Pier, shared in a statement. “The opening of this one-of-a-kind destination hotel and accompanying restaurant comes at a time when our city is ready to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and guests from the region look to resume travel.” 

The Sable hotel has 223 guest rooms and suites, each with a nautical theme to honor the pier's naval history, featuring elements like weathered brass, shipbuilding materials and floor-to-ceiling windows in each room that overlook the lakefront and city. 

With room pricing starting at $155, guests can book their hotel reservations beginning on Thursday, March 18. Visit Sable at Navy Pier on Hilton’s website for room options and further details.
