Monday marks the opening of the Aqua Radisson Blu Hotel downtown.

The hotel makes up the first 18 floors of the award-winning 81-story Aqua tower, which sits along Columbus Drive just north of Millennium Park.

The hotel's first guests were expected to begin checking in Monday afternoon. There is a soft-opening celebration scheduled for later this evening inside the hotel.
