Heads of state, legendary mob bosses and treasured artwork
Aptly named “The Hotel of Presidents,” this historic Chicago hotel has hosted several heads of state, including Presidents Teddy Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and Jimmy Carter.
The hotel also had a notorious streak, as it was favored by legendary mob bosses “Lucky” Luciano and Al Capone. It’s been said that Al Capone held meetings while getting his haircut in the windowless barbershop at The Blackstone.
Rivaling the most prestigious Chicago art museums, The Blackstone’s art collection is one of the city’s treasures. With over 1,600 works, primarily created by local artists, the collection includes pieces that not only conjure up Chicago past and present, but also evoke this legendary hotel’s regal architecture.
When you browse the selection of works, you can almost hear the sounds of Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne and Nat King Cole through the halls. On permanent display throughout guest rooms, meeting rooms, and public spaces, our art collection is an extension of The Blackstone’s role as a Chicago cultural icon.
Enjoy one of the city’s most intriguing art collections during your stay, and come away with an enriched perspective of Chicago.
