New Years in Chicago

The high ceilings and comfortable king bed made us feel like we were in a mini palace. Great view of downtown. The shower was a bit odd, there was no door or handle in the shower and I was afraid I was going to slip. The staff was really kind and helpful. Loved that we could walk to all the Chicago attraction in 15 minutes or less.

A great hotel in the heart of chicago!

Clean, comfortable and very reasonably sized rooms, in a great location, and at a very reasonable price. Overall, a great deal. The only complaint is that wireless internet connectivity in the rooms was a little slow.

Perfect Weekend Stay!

We traveled from Detroit Michigan and with the snow made for a long drive there. When we arrived at Hotel Blake we were greeted right away by a gentleman whose personality was outstanding! We felt welcomed right from the start until we left! The hotel was beyond nice and everything was near by! I would recommend staying at this hotel to anyone and I will for sure be telling my friends about it when they need recommendations on where to go!

Perfect Visit

We were quite impressed with our stay at Hotel Blake. The perfect weather was just an added bonus. We were walking distance to many of the shops and just one train (blue line) from O'Hare. The staff were exceptional and most accommodating from the Matri'D to the front desk to the maids. Our 1st room was very small so we asked for a larger room which we were given promptly. It was clean and the bath and body gels, crème and shampoo were a nice treat. We have stayed at several hotels in Chicago and would have to say that this one was by far the best.

Good location near Buckingham Fountain

I had a business meeting near this affordable boutique hotel. The room was very large and comfortable. I had a great view of Congress Parkway boulevard which has a lovely night view. The area is fairly quiet (which is my preference) but easily within walking distance from many area attractions like Grant Park and Willis (Sears) Tower. The Blue Line station (to/from O'Hare) is only a block and a half away. The hotel has friendly, down-to-earth (and not stuffy) staff. My one complaint is the lack of plentiful and easily accessible outlets for charging multiple devices.
