Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.

We stayed for one night and were so pleased. The room is a nice size. We had a lake view on the 21 floor and it was great. Room 2121. The bathroom was also large with Tv in the mirror. Bathtub was a bit old fashioned but with very nicely updated fixtures. The bed and linens

The Blackstone is the place to stay if you’re looking for great service, comfortable and clean hotel amenities all at a valuable rate. The hotel is perfectly located if you plan on watching a Bears victory at Soldier Field and enjoying great Chicago blues at Buddy Guys.

We spent the weekend in Chicago to visit friends. We chose The Blackstone as it is part of the Marriott family of hotels. The hotel offered a competitive rate and was well located in the city. We greatly enjoyed our time in the hotel. It has a classic old hotel feel yet has been

The Blackstone wasn’t my original choice. I had booked into the Langham but I was offered a very very good rate to stay here and as a PPE member of Marriott it made sense to stay within the Marriott/SPG family. Also the huge saving meant I could enjoy more of what Chicago had to

Thank you for your review, mikeijay! We appreciate all the details and happy you enjoyed the hotel's aesthetics, accommodations, and location. Thank you for explaining your overall experience at the restaurant and at The Blackstone. I will be sure to share this with the rest of the team.

The Blackstone Hotel is wonderful historic property located on Michigan Avenue. It is on the north end near Grant Park and Millenium Park. Also just south of Soldier Field, The Field Museum, and the aquarium. It is right across the street from the Chicago Hilton where the Fugiti

davidtaylor5200, we also had a couple popular movies filmed at The Blackstone! The Untouchables was a big scene in our ballroom. A lot of fun movie history in our neighborhood! Thank you for reviewing your stay. I am so glad you enjoyed our location on the Cultural Mile!

Hello, I have a reservation coming up in July and will be in town early. Is early check in available with a fee? Thank you!
We actually received early check-in with no fee but I sense that was based partially on availability. We stayed in what might be considered “off-season.”

is there a bar in the hotel, and is the ballroom open for me to have a look around during my stay.
They have a bar in the lobby and I believe there is one in the restaurant. I actually didn’t check out the ballroom but the employees are all very friendly and would probably make sure you saw it if you wanted to! Hope my answers help. Have a great trip & stay!!

"I suggest getting a room overlooking Grant Park."
"Several other hotel options are much better."
"Upper floor with views of Grant Park and the lake"
"My group (6) stayed in an Executive Two Queen Bedroom that opened into a King Bedroom. We had more than enough space to sleep and get ready."
"Splurge for the lake facing rooms, they are totally worth it."
