In this hotel, a man took a razor to Al Capone's neck... on a regular basis. The notorious crime boss routinely arrived at the Blackstone for a shave and a haircut. The basement level barber shop (with its hidden escape hatch) is no longer operational, but the Capone legend adds to the cachet of the century-old Blackstone.
Capone wasn't the hotel's only famous guest. Presidents, actors, and captains of industry have tucked in at this 23-story beaux-Arts Chicago landmark, which opened in 1910. Renovated in 2008 to the tune of $130 million, it now welcomes significantly less notorious guests.
