    The Blackstone, Autograph Collection
    Chicago, IL
    0.5 miles to city center
    4.0-star Hotel Class

    Travelers have a favorite word for The Blackstone, Autograph Collection: comfortable. With its long history (the hotel dates back to 1910), this South Loop property could easily garner a stuffy atmosphere, but recent guests attest that The Blackstone, Autograph Collection maintains its landmark status while embracing a luxuriously modern ambiance. The hotel offers 335 well-appointed guest rooms and suites, each boasting modern decor, minifridges, coffee makers and, on the upper floors, Lake Michigan and Magnificent Mile vistas. Recent visitors also rave about the hotel's convenient setting across the street from Chicago's Grant Park. On the other hand, travelers were disappointed they had to pay for in-room internet access, and some noted room walls were thin, making it was easy to hear hallway conversations and the passing L train. When it comes to dining, the on-site restaurant, Mercat a la Planxa, serves tapas and Catalan-inspired cocktails. If you want more culinary variety, Michigan Avenue's acclaimed eateries are close by. And keep in mind, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn or cash in points at this Autograph Collection property.

    Hilton Chicago
    Chicago, IL

    The Hilton Chicago has an interesting history: The 1968 Democratic Convention riots took place at its front door, and the presidential suite has hosted a plethora of U.S. presidents. Yet despite its relevance in American history, the Hilton Chicago fails to impress some of its visitors. Recent guests say this property is a bit of a letdown compared to other Hilton outposts, citing subpar service and tired guest room decor. Still, the spacious accommodations — many of which have two bathrooms and all of which house flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi access (for a fee) and touch-panel concierge services – are popular with recent guests. The Hilton Chicago also features an indoor pool and easy access to the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium and Grant Park, not to mention a business center and ample meeting space. And whether you're here on business or for pleasure, many visitors recommend the 720 South Bar & Grill as a good spot to grab a meal and drinks after a long day. Members of the Hilton Honors program can accrue or redeem points here.

    This Chi-town Hyatt is convenient to the convention center, making it a great spot for business travelers – especially since you can access the convention center via sky bridge. But leisure travelers say that it's a bit far removed from some of the city's top to-dos. Still, this South Loop outpost offers most of the usual amenities of a Hyatt brand hotel, including a fitness center, a business center and an indoor pool. And according to many previous visitors, you'll find room rates here to be a bargain compared to more central hotels. If you'd like to feel a little bit closer to the downtown action, recent guests recommend booking a room on one of the upper floors for a better view of the Chicago skyline. No matter which room you stay in, you'll find it dressed in relatively simple decor and boasting an iHome stereo system, a 37-inch flat-panel TV, plenty of work space and high-speed Internet access. Though you'll be a bit removed from Chicago's dining scene, you'll find plenty to eat at the hotel, such as steak at Shor and pasta at Forno. What's more, members of the Hyatt Gold Passport program can accrue or redeem points by choosing to stay here.

    Despite its name, this mansion-turned-hotel only has 11 rooms, each comfortably fitted with plush velvet drapes, antiques, and goose-down feather beds. Still, travelers seem to either love or hate this Near South Side hotel. Some guests express displeasure with the small service staff, while others are dissatisfied with the hotel's distant location from Chicago's top attractions. But still others say they were charmed by the bed and breakfast atmosphere, and enjoyed its seclusion from the downtown noise.
