Hotels Near Navy Pier in Chicago

Navy Pier and the Chicago Skyline

Stay where you play, we like to say! Here are our recommended hotels near Navy Pier in Chicago. They’re all within about a mile and the best route to the pier is included for each place.

For routes that recommend the free trolley, please note that while it runs daily during the summer, it only runs on the weekends the rest of the year. If that’s when you’re planning your Navy Pier visit, then your best option would be to take a taxi or a ride share service. If you're new to ride-sharing services use one of our codes and you'll get a credit with Uber or Lyft. Need to drive? Check out our guide to Navy Pier parking.

Hotel room rates are not included. They fluctuate dramatically in downtown Chicago based on demand, the weather, how the Cubs/Sox/Bulls/Bears/Blackhawks are doing, which celebrities have been sighted recently, how many roads are closed due to construction, the phase of the moon, etc. etc.

ACME Hotel Company Chicago

ACME Hotel Company is a hotel by Navy Pier in Chicago

This hotel is cool. It's got a vibe that'll make you feel like you're cool just by staying there. Glow-in-the-dark red lip-prints on the bathroom mirror, beach balls in the hot tub, chalkboards on the door so you can leave your own Do Not Disturb - or any other - message. Coffee is free and brought to your room in a thermos from one of the best bakeries in Chicago, which just happens to be downstairs. Wifi is also free, and fast. Their hotel bar has more locals than tourists sipping its craft cocktails. Plus, it’s ACME – Wile E. Coyote, anyone?

Hyatt Regency Chicago

With two towers and over 2,000 guest rooms, Hyatt Regency Chicago is the largest hotel in Chicago, and they know it: their second-floor bar is named BIG. It’s not just referencing the size of the hotel, though. The bar itself is the longest free-standing bar on the continent. Downstairs, American Craft Kitchen & Bar features locally sourced cuisine and an impressive collection of craft beer. Looking for fine dining? Stetsons Modern Steak + Sushi is a destination in its own right. The rooms themselves offer modern décor with enough room to stretch and tech-savvy accoutrements.

  • Location: 151 E Wacker Dr
  • Distance from Navy Pier: 1.2 mile
  • Best route: For a scenic route take the stairs down to the Chicago Riverwalk. Turn right (towards the lake) and you’ll run into the Lakefront Path. Turn north to get to Navy Pier. That is a bit of a hike, so you can also pick up a taxi, Uber or Lyft. Be sure to get picked up on Lower Wacker Drive. It’s faster and more direct, which also means it’s cheaper.

Intercontinental Hotel Chicago

Intercontinental Hotel Chicago Magnificent Mile

If you want a piece of history with your hotel, you’ll be swimming in it at the InterContinental - literally. The luxurious hotel was built in 1929 as a men’s luxury club, and its 14th floor pool was considered an engineering feat at the time. Olympic athlete and Tarzan actor Johnny Weismuller trained in the Junior Olympic sized lanes, and now hotel guests can swim in the same space.

As you approach the hotel the first thing you’ll notice is its impressive entrance, which is fitting since it’s the only hotel with an entrance directly on the Magnificent Mile. Inside the four-story lobby and grand staircase lead you to Michael Jordan’s Steak House, and beyond that, luxurious rooms and suites. Surprisingly you won’t pay a premium. As far as downtown Chicago hotels go, the InterContinental’s rates are about mid-range.

  • Location: 505 N Michigan Ave
  • Distance from Navy Pier: 1 mile
  • Best route: Take the stairs down to Lower Michigan Avenue and catch the free trolley.
