Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Highly professional Staff"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Front desk persons knowledgeable and courteous upgrade to bathtub in room given upon request with no additional charge. Eric. on front desk was noteworthy in his care and attention. Blackstone is an historic hotel and despite two on going weddings scheduled on New Year's Eve, the front desk was fully staffed and available to all with questions. Highly recommend hotel for future stays.

"A Hotel Snob's Dream"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My husband and I spent the weekend in Chicago and stayed at The Blackstone. Our room was perfect. The bed was so cozy I ripped the sheets off to find out the mattress manufacturer. Best sleep ever! Its centrally locate. Walked to the Art Institute of Chicago. Lots of dining nearby. The staff was very courteous and accommodating. No issues at all. Would recommend the Blackstone to all my fellow hotel snobs!
