The Chicago skyline is ever changing, and since November has added a dazzling new addition to the gorgeous architecture. This is an amazing building. The new four-star Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel in downtown Chicago is 81 stories high, and looks very unconventional.
One of the more unique design innovations is the balcony. No matter which balcony you stand on, you’ll get a 180-degree view of the Windy City. I’ve not been inside yet, but after seeing these photographs I want to check it out.
This curving building is the Radisson Blu’s first in North America. It contains 334 hotel rooms all within the first 18 floors, with the rest of the levels used for residents to live in and work from. If you wanted to stay for a night, it will cost you about $200, which isn’t too steep considering what other Chicago hotels charge.
Amenities include an 8,000 square foot gym and basketball court, an outdoor fire pit, running track and a pool with cabanas.
The hotel has a gym that spans 8,000 square feet and even has a basketball court. Outside, there is 80,000-square-feet of space with a fire pit, running track and a pool with cabanas.
