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 scoped out this property to evaluate it for a future visit. The lobby was beautiful! The Art Hall (an entire floor) is open to the public and has it’s own “button” in the elevator so you don’t have to ask anyone where it is. Same goes for the amazing ballroom. Also check out

We had a group of over 25 staying and every aspect of our visit was top shelf. We used the food service facilities for a large lunch event and the food and service exceeded our expectations. The motel staff was extremely accommodating to all our requests and needs.

Very nicely updated historic hotel. Twenty three floors and great elevator service. Great staff and service. Good central location within walking distance to most of the downtown sites. Can't go wrong staying here.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
Ideally located close to almost everything you want to see, the Blackstone is a gorgeous choice for a home away from home. We went to Chicago for a weekend trip with friends. The contemporary art. The history. The decor. The room. The bed. The soaps. The restaurant. The staff.

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.”

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!!

"lake view rooms are nice"
"we asked for quiet room (there was a wedding party in-house) and thankfully, our room was very quiet despite a busy Friday night at hotel."
"Plenty of outlets for your devices. Rooms with a view of the park and the lake are delightful. "
"higher floor on park side view."
"I would consider this property a downtown luxury that I scored for a mid-level price."
