Lovely hotel right where you want to be.

Would recommend Thu, Aug 13, 2009
Lovely hotel across the street from Grant Park. Short walk to most Chicago sites. Friendly staff, clean large rooms, and nice bar/restaurant. I have stayed at 7-8 hotels downtown Chicago and this was the best one by far.

Up-scale Friendliness

Would recommend Fri, Jul 24, 2009
Our stay at the Blackstone Hotel was one of the nicest hotel experiences we have ever had. My daughter and I were in Chicago for Orientation at Columbia College Chicago, so obviously the location could not have been better. But what made the trip so wonderful was the attitude of every staff member at the hotel combined with the lovely and extremely comfortable accomodations. The Front Desk staff were the most welcoming and efficient of any hotel I've stayed at. Requests for restaurant suggestions were thoughtfully considered, and the places recommended didn't seem to be be memorized "for tourists" responses but rather places that from personal experience they thought we would really enjoy...and we did! Requests from our room...one night my daughter had blisters on her heels from walking, and we called down for band-aids...were responded too incredibly quickly, we had those band-aids in less than 5 minutes. I can not say enough good things about this hotel. And don't even get me started on Mercat ala Plaxa, the hotel's restaurant. The brioche french toast is wonderful, and the Tasting Dinner with wine pairing is not to be missed....well worth the cost and the time needed to appreciate this leisurely dining experience. Make a reservation, the restaurant is extremely popular in the broader Chicago community. The rooms are beautifully decorated, and have wonderful comfy beds and linens. We also loved the roman shades at the windows...they blocked not just light but noise from the city outside.

Dining

The Custom House -- a very up-scale and $$$ restaurant-- was recommended, fabulous, and worth the money. The Chicago Curry House -- more moderately priced --we found on our own and thoroughly enjoyed.

Great Service, Nicely Decorated Room

Would recommend Thu, Jul 16, 2009
Hotel was great, but Orbitz apparently flubbed the reservation and we had to wait 40 minutes to get that straightened out when we checked in. Then reservation issue resurfaced on second day so no maid service. The hotel staff were helpful in resolving this but Orbitz needs to get it right!

Attractions

The hotel is directly across from Grant Park and a short walk from Art Institute. Well located for long or short walks to other museums and locations. Red and blue line subways are short walks away. Taxis always available too.

Great location in Chicago, traditional building but very modern interior. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was a little pricey for what is was - but there is also a Starbucks in the basement!

Great Room - Great Location

Would recommend Wed, Jun 3, 2009
Classic hotel right on S. Michigan Ave. Near to Chicago Institute of Art. We walked to the Magnificant mile on N. Michigan because the weather was so good, but it was a pretty long walk.

Attractions

Take one of the architectual boat rides. Very interesting history.

The best hotel in Chicago!

Even though the location seemed to be off the main drag, the availability of transportation made it very easy to get around.
