My experience with Hotel Blake was excellent. I was here with a group of friends for a girl weekend. Our interactions with the concierge "Showtime" was a highlight of our trip. He was kind, friendly and went to extreme measures to make us feel welcome and assure our trip was smooth. He and the front desk staff helped us with...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 January 2017

From the outside the hotel looks like it is older and presumably not well maintained. Don't judge a book by its cover! The hotel is very nicely decorated and maintained. The rooms vary in size but mine was a nice size (my friend had a smaller room that was still well kept and clean). The bathroom was huge with a...

Small hotel with comfortable rooms and excellent service. The guys at the front desk were always helpful as was our concierge, Showtime. Great places to eat on the same block at Meli and Geno's East and we were able to walk to nearly everywhere we wanted to go or make a short walk to the train. I would definitely stay...

Stayed at Hotel Blake for a recent seminar. Hotel was clean, comfortable, and located conveniently close to Grant Park and the subway. Hotel Staff was very polite and accommodating. The rooms were a little small, but adequate and well kept. Would stay here again and recommend to others.

The Hotel Blake was clean, comfortable, and its location is great. We walked to the theater and local attractions such as Millenium Park, Navy Pier, and Shedd Aquarium. Although we didn't use public transportation, there are stops nearby. The staff was very welcoming, and they were enthusiastic about helping us with restaurant selection, directions, etc. The onsite restaurant is excellent....

We have stayed at the Blake a few times. We really like the hotel. It's a generous sized room in the city. The room is clean and furnishings are nice. The location is on the south side of downtown. It's near Michigan avenue and a short walk to the Lake and park. The redline and L are right there. Staff...

We were in town for the Wanderlust event (5K/yoga/meditation) that was in Grant Park, so we wanted to be close to there. We really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and well kept.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
