I have to say that when I walked by the hotel a couple months ago, the outside of the building looked so fresh and clean that it looked as though it were new construction--not a nick or discoloration anywhere in the terracotta or the bricks. What a wonderful restoration job.

I miss the Jazz Showcase at the Blackstone. The best room around. Time to dig up my Joe Williams discs.

The Blackstone has come a long way... Back in 1948, my parents spent their honeymoon there. After going to bed the first night they were attacked by bedbugs and were quickly moved to another room. My Grandmother worked there as a food checker back in 1910. I am glad to see the tradition of a great hotel lives on in Chicago....
