Come for the run but take advantage of all that Chicago has to offer. Many of the city’s attractions are conveniently located within walking distance of one another including the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, and the Museum of Science and Industry located at Chicago’s lakefront Museum Campus. Visit Navy Pier, stroll (or run) along the pedestrian pathway that stretches for miles along Lake Michigan and shop the Magnificent Mile along Michigan Avenue.
The Blackstone is a LOVELY hotel, and with its extremely easy access to the start and finish lines, it is by far the best venue I have ever had for a marathon.
Such a beautiful hotel - perfect for the start of the race as well as finishing right there as well!!
I enjoyed this hotel and I felt that it was close enough to everything that I wanted to see including the start line of the race.
