Best Hotel for Fourth of July Events in Chicago

Join us at Hotel Chicago to celebrate America’s big bash! Our River North luxury hotel offers premier accommodations for the Fourth of July in the Windy City, which—in our humble opinion—makes one of the best places in the country for marking Independence Day.

Combine our Marriott Bonvoy Autograph Collection hospitality with a wonderfully auspicious location to take in Chicago’s Fourth of July festivities.

Fourth of July Happenings in Chicago

With a room or suite at Hotel Chicago, you’ll find yourself within easy reach of one of the city’s classic lakefront destinations: Navy Pier. This beloved entertainment center will be hosting not one but two stellar fireworks displays for the Fourth of July weekend: one on Saturday, July 2nd and another on the Fourth itself (Monday). These shows will feature 15 spectacular minutes of pyrotechnics, with multiple vantages in and around Navy Pier—including out on Lake Michigan via a fireworks cruise!

The Grant Park Music Festival, meanwhile, which runs through much of summer from June 15th through August 20th, will be celebrating the holiday with its hugely popular Independence Day Salute. The Grant Park Orchestra & Chorus, presided over by Chorus Director Christopher Bell, will be presenting a stacked program of patriotic tunes, from John Williams’ Liberty Fanfare to John Philip Sousa’s Stars & Stripes Forever.

Other Activities for the Holiday Weekend

There’s much else to see and do over the Independence Day weekend in Chicago. Hit up the Lake Michigan beachfronts—not least the well-loved North Avenue Beach, where you can also rent kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and other equipment. Relax in world-class city parks, dine out on rooftops and patios, and take in a show or two in the Theater District—or maybe at the House of Blues, right next door to Hotel Chicago. Tour the city’s outstanding museums, or hit up the Shedd Aquarium or Lincoln Park Zoo.
