Our Take: Travelers have a favorite word for the Renaissance Blackstone: comfortable. With its far-reaching ancestry (it dates back to 1910), this South Loop hotel could easily garner a stuffy atmosphere, but recent guests attest the Blackstone maintains its landmark status while embracing a luxuriously modern ambience. With the help of a $128 million revamp, the hotel offers well-appointed guestrooms and suites, each boasting modern décor, plush Renaissance bedding, and on the upper floors, Lake Michigan and Magnificent Mile vistas. Recent visitors also rave about its convenient setting across the street from Grant Park. Guest reviews are more mixed about the on-site tapas restaurant, Mercat a la Planxa, but if you want more culinary variety, Michigan Avenue's acclaimed eateries are close by. Members of the Marriott Rewards program can earn or cash in points here.
