Our take on The Blackstone Renaissance Chicago Hotel

Built in the early 20th century, the Renaissance Blackstone Chicago Hotel earned the nickname -- "The Hotel of Presidents" -- for being host to numerous political figures, as well as celebrities and dignitaries throughout the years. After a massive renovation effort and a grand re-opening in the 21st century, the Blackstone is once again a treasured Chicago Loop hotel, offering contemporary accommodations in a prime location. Nearby you'll find Grant Park, Millennium Park, Shed Aquarium and the Field Museums -- all of which are must-see attractions. The hotel has 332 guest rooms, including Club Level and executive options that offer upgraded style, service and amenities for guests. In a city known for its acclaimed culinary scene, it takes something special to stand-out amongst the array of dining options, and the hotel's restaurant -- Mercat a la Planxa -- certainly stands out: it's run by Iron Chef and James Beard Award-winner, Jose Garces, who seduces guests with his contemporary Catalan cuisine.

Insider Tips on the Best Rooms at this Hotel

Quiet Rooms

Guests rarely complain about street noise, but if you want to play it safe, request a room above the 15th floor, and away from the elevators.

Rooms with a View

If you're looking for some visual stimuli, reserve a Lake Michigan View room so you can look out over the lake as well as Grant Park.

Oversized Rooms

Executive rooms are located at the corners of the hotel and offer more space, but they don't offer any views; you'll have decide whether a view or extra square footage is more important.
