Blackstone Chicago


Located in the heart of the city’s Cultural Mile and adjacent to the world class Millennium Park, The Blackstone Hotel, features 335 stylish downtown Chicago hotel rooms and suites, including the famed Suite of Presidents and Smoke-Filled Suite;

The hotel also features an innovative collection of over 1,600 original artworks, primarily by Chicago artists. The 1600 CLUB, The Blackstone’s concierge lounge, is just steps down from the first floor lobby featuring artwork and décor which gives a nod to the property’s former name, The Hotel of Presidents. Lakeview guest rooms offer guests sweeping, unobstructed views of Lake Michigan from Navy Pier to Soldier Field. While you’re out, and about, step out of the windy city’s blustery winter weather, if even for a spell. Pop into  Mercat a la Planxa, the independent restaurant attached to the hotel. Look through the menu and spend an afternoon or evening imbibing some crafty cocktails and satiate the appetite with some of their fabulous small plates. We loved the casual ambiance and sophisticated fare.
