Was a great location for our weekend plans but needs some work

Would recommend Mon, Sep 29, 2014
My husband and I stayed for one night at Blackstone this past weekend. It was an easy cab ride from the train station. Check in went smooth. The hotel was in the perfect location for us because we were going to walk to soldier field for the bears game and it was a good walking distance. Some good things is the hotel was recently renovated so it is classically beautiful, it has a Starbucks in the hotel, the gym looked nice, they offered head phones and it looked clean. The not so good things.. I thought were the hotel was very dark, the art hall is very small and not very impressive and the worst was the bed. It was not neatly made when we arrived and it was very old. When you sat on it creaked, which made sleeping on it very noisy at night whenever you turned. If I'm going to stay at a hotel, I would like to have a quiet comfy bed to get a good night rest in.
