About the Blackstone:
The Renaissance Blackstone Chicago, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has played an integral role in American history, having hosted 12 U.S. Presidents, Hollywood celebrities, including Katharine Hepburn and Betty Davis, countless dignitaries and even served as the frequent hangout for Chicago’s most well-known gangster, Al Capone (in the hotel’s historic Barbershop). The iconic hotel, which is situated in the heart of downtown on Michigan Avenue, is home to the history-making “Smoke Filled Suite,” the politically significant site where cigar-smoking Republican leaders brokered the presidential nomination of Warren G. Harding during the 1920 Republican Convention. Consequently, it was here that an AP reporter covering the convention coined the widely known phrase “a smoke-filled room.”
