This hotel is a sleeper pick. It’s a little of the path on south Michigan Avenue but this place is truly a gem! The lobby is incredibly detailed, and there’s a lot of historical and architectural significance to the hotel. Many US presidents have stayed here in the presidential suite which is super cool. The rooms were incredibly unique, updated, and detailed; very romantic in my opinion.

Our stay at the Blackstone was perfect from beginning to end. Even before we arrived the manager upgraded our room which upon arrival exceeded our expectations in comfort, view and quiet. Everyone was friendly yet professional. Highly recommended!

Some of my favorite experiences when traveling are the people I meet - and this trip is no exception. From the front desk ladies Lilly and Diana - to Ms. Carolyn in the Bonvoy lounge, and the doormen who told me where the best diner was. The Blackstone staff made sure I had a lovely time. The decor is exactly as it looks online except it’s much better in person. The location is superb and so was the weather. The only down side to my experience was not having more time to enjoy the city. I would absolutely recommend this amazing place for any type of travel you have.

I was happy to stay here right before Christmas and all the virus crazy hit. The staff was excellent and I was happily upgraded to one of their suites as a titanium elite. The location is great to get from MDW or ORD on the CTA or walk around the loop or waterfront The executive lounge is alright but grossly undersized for this type of hotel especially in the AM during breakfast.
