An Iconic Downtown Chicago Hotel Experience

Discover The Blackstone

The Blackstone in downtown Chicago is a storied architectural icon rooted in the city's legendary past, but newly updated to deliver a distinguished hospitality experience for today's discerning traveler. Previously known as the Renaissance Blackstone, this recently revitalized destination is blooming as a point of cultural and creative discovery on the Cultural Mile.

The history of The Blackstone begins with Timothy Blackstone, who was a 19th century railroad executive, businessman, philanthropist, and politician. Where the hotel stands today was the site of his grand mansion. Built by the Drake brothers in 1909 and designed by architects Marshall & Fox, the hotel opened in 1910 as the tallest building in Chicago at the time. Noteworthy guests have included 12 consecutive presidents from Taft to Carter, Al Capone, and others. The Blackstone has also been home to Hollywood and several notable films have shot here, including The Color of Money and The Untouchables. The hotel has hosted notorious events like the 1920 Republican Convention in our 9th floor “Smoke-Filled Room,” where Warren G. Harding was controversially made the Presidential candidate as well as the first organized Crime Convention by Charles “Lucky” Luciano in 1932.

Today The Blackstone offers modern accommodations boasting views of Lake Michigan and Grant Park, acclaimed dining, iconic meeting spaces, and thoughtful details like live music in the lobby, complimentary turndown service and more. The hotel also features a specially commissioned collection of more than 1,600 contemporary artworks, primarily by emerging Chicago artists, on view in our public spaces and Historic Art Hall. Artists include visual satirist Michael Hernandez De Luna, Mark Debernadi, David Soukup, Joyce Owens, Chad Wys, Michelle Litvin and more.  

With stories to tell, The Blackstone is set to surprise, entertain, and inspire with a clever contemporary attitude.
