The Hilton, one of the hottest new hotel chains in the world, is building a new hotel in the heart of Chicago.
It’s called the LBI, and it’s a high-end luxury hotel that will be a major hit for the company and the city of Chicago, the Chicago Tribune reports.
The new hotel will be called the Marriott Marquis and will be built in the historic Merchandise Mart building.
“We’re delighted to announce this project to create the world’s largest hotel at the Merchandise River,” Hilton CEO Doug Parker said in a statement.
“We are committed to bringing this innovative, innovative project to Chicago, and we’re excited to bring it to our customers in the city that we love.”
The hotel will include a 7,200-square-foot lobby, a rooftop pool, a spa, a cinema, and more.
It’s the largest hotel building in the US and is expected to be the first hotel to include a large glass window that can open to reveal a spectacular view of the river.
There are no details yet on what the hotel will look like, but it will be very much an upscale hotel.
The hotel will have a $50,000-a-night rate and it will also include an indoor tennis court, a basketball court, and an indoor bowling alley.
