Love Letters to The Blackstone

Read what others have said about their downtown Chicago wedding experience at The Blackstone. We are so privileged to have shared in their special day.

A+ Downtown Chicago Wedding Reception Venue

If you are looking for old time glam with modern updates this is the venue for you. We had 90% of our guests come in from out of state for our wedding. This property exceeded all our expectations. The staff is friendly and great. The event planners and staff were excellent! They truly made my husband and I feel so appreciated as a client and made sure every last detail was executed for our special day. On top of all this, this place by far was the best bang for your buck in downtown Chicago. Not one complaint from any of our guests. They still are talking about it!

Beautiful Historic Hotel

The Blackstone immediately took my breath away when I first visited. It is so unique and the Crystal Ballroom is an amazingly elegant backdrop for a wedding. Our bridal suite was incredible, and the hotel handled every detail perfectly.

The Perfect Wedding Venue

The Renaissance Blackstone was the perfect wedding venue! Our coordinator at the hotel, Samantha, was absolutely amazing. I can not sing her praises enough! She was incredibly professional and answered my many, many emails in such a timely manner (usually same day!). She provided great advice and suggestions and was there on the day to make sure everything went smoothly - which it did! The venue itself is classic and gorgeous. Our guests raved about the food and the stunning ballroom details. I would 100% recommend this venue if you're looking for an elegant venue with old Chicago glam vibe in the heart of the city.

My Dream Wedding

The Blackstone was absolutely wonderful to work with - they really made my dream wedding come true! Samantha went above and beyond as the event manager, taking away as much stress as she could and helping me to produce a truly seamless day. From the food to the decor to the little details she made sure happened, I could not be happier with my wedding at the Blackstone. The word that circulated around the whole wedding was "perfection" and I am not sure I could have accomplished that without the staff of the Blackstone. Plus - the ballroom is absolutely beyond spectacular!
