Discover Our Hotel


The fabled Blackstone Chicago hotel enjoys a rich history as one of Chicago’s most renowned locales. The downtown Chicago hotel opened with much fanfare on April 16, 1910 and was a favorite retreat for movie stars, sports legends, and international royalty, and 12 U.S. Presidents (the Blackstone is actually famous for the political cliché “Smoke-filled Room”). Shuttered in 1999 (it was briefly held by the Maharishi Yogi, the Beatles’ guru), the property was acquired by Sage Hospitality, and the Denver, CO –based hospitality company transformed the shuttered landmark into a world-class downtown Chicago hotel with a benchmark $128 million renovation.

Located on the famed Magnificent Mile, in the heart of the city’s arts and theatre district and just across the street from Grant Park, the Blackstone is one of the premier downtown Chicago hotels and represents yet another significant development milestone in the renaissance of the South Loop downtown neighborhood.
