Nicky Hilton to Open Hotel "Nicky O"

Pretty soon (this November in fact), if you visit Miami’s famed Ocean Drive, you might be able to stay in Nicky Hilton’s newest business venture, Nicky O, a boutique chain of luxury hotels to open in Miami and Chicago. Apparently, Nicky Hilton’s got so much money that she feels it’d be great to compete with her own family line of Hilton Hotels. Seriously though, what’s up with the name? Nicky O? That’s the most unoriginal name that must have been conceived in any meeting (just in case you don’t know, her middle name is Olivia, hence the ‘O’ – duh).

Each 94-room structure will have independently designed rooms by Nicky’s friends. Expect room prices to be intergalactic. As for hotel management help from her family? Well, she says she’ll go to them for advice, but financially, she’s supposedly heading this up on her own. Yeah, right.

From People magazine:

Nicky Hilton is getting into the hotel business, she told PEOPLE on Thursday.

"I’ve always wanted to do it," says the lodging heiress, who plans to renovate two existing buildings to open the "Nicky O" on Miami’s famed Ocean Drive in November. "I’ve been around hotels my whole life, and I know a good hotel when I see one."

Shortly after, her second Nicky O will open on Chicago’s historic Printer’s Row. "Miami will definitely be a party destination, and Chicago will be a little more calm," she says.

The 94-room boutique/condo accommodation will include entertainment news tickers in the elevators, a signature scent and rooms designed by friends – including a $5,000-a-night penthouse by clothing designer Roberto Cavalli.

Although Hilton, 22, comes from a family with an expertise in hotels, she isn’t partnering with the clan to fund her new project. "I’ll go to my family for advice, but they’re not involved at all," she says of her parents, brothers, and sister Paris.

Still, she is a Hilton: Borrowing a phrase from sister Paris, Nicky says of the Miami hotel’s lobby, which will include a giant chandelier at its center and lots of marble: "It’s just so beautiful – and hot."

As for her private life, she says everything with her boyfriend, Entourage star Kevin Connolly, is "good" – but she’s focusing on her career right now, including shooting ads for her bag line and feverishly working to get the hotels ready to open. "This is my summer," she says of her latest endeavor.

    i can’t stand either hilton sister! I wish they would just disappear! With that being said, I think Nicky O??? has a few more brain cells than her skanky sister.

  • Stephanie

    I’ll bet her family is thrilled. What a novel idea – the Hilton’s going into a hotel business…hummmm

  • Ule

    Oh, come on. I definitely believe she’s financed this without her parents money. But the irony of that is she probably got it in part due to her family name.

  • dera

    BUT ……….. So pretty girl :-)

  • Beth

    She looks prettier than her sister. She doesn’t constantly try to pose. Maybe she is a little smarter and realistic than Paris.

  • joliepittme

    At least she’s doing actual work. Unless shes planning on using her V***** to sell the hotels, than its ok.
