Overall ok, but felt nickel and dimed.

Pros: Room was generally what I expected.
Cons: Here's the point that got under my skin. They charge $14.95 + $2.09 tax for internet service. At best I could download at 2.5 Mb/s and mostly less.
Location: Great location
Great location for the south loop area and the universities in the area. The additional internet charges for very slow, almost non-usable service really got under my skin. I did complain to the manage and she reluctantly removed two days of charges. Internet in this type of hotel should be free. Plain and simple. The manager did say they had a "higher speed" service for an additional $3/day.

Hotel Close to the Field Museum

Posted Aug 21, 2016 on Expedia
Great service with extremely nice employees with great food advice for the city. Very close to the Field Museum, which was great to walk there for research. In a interesting and vibrant part of the city with a lot to see and do. Food in the hotel is very expensive, may be better to eat other places; there is a Starbucks in the basement, which may help.

exceptional staff, location

Posted Aug 9, 2016 on Hotels
two night business stay. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, volunteering to do extra things, help find a lost item, offering bottled water on return to hotel. They have clearly done a great job of hiring. This attitude in staff seemed so natural and built in. Loop location is perfect. Always something going on in the summer. This trip it was Chicago Summer Dance right across the street from the hotel.

Quality Disappointing

Posted Aug 7, 2016 on Expedia
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary this year in Chicago. We are Mariott rewards members and stay at the Blackstone anytime we visit Chicago. We were Very disappointed this time with our stay and will be considering other options in the future when visiting Chicago. The first room they put us in wasn't clean. There was some type of hair product or jell on the built in desk and coffee stains. The bed look like it hasn't been made and definitely the sheets were not cleaned. We requested a room change but the second room wasn't much better. The sheets were cleaned but the furniture was in total disarray. The leather chair was cracked and peeling, the furniture was scratched up, the safe didn't work. For the prices the Blackstone charges are expectations were definitely not meet and we will in the future find another place to enjoy our visits to Chicago.
