I stayed in one of the king rooms for 4 nights while attending a conference at the nearby Hilton and then stayed another night in a shared double queen room with a colleague when our flight was cancelled. Overall, I thought the Blake was a decent place to stay and a good price, but I think it could be a...

Bigfork, Montana
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Staff are friendly and responsive. High ceilings, and windows that open. Old hotel that has been renovated tastefully. Within 2 blocks of CTA. Great views of Chicago Public Library building and Willis Tower if you're lucky. Clean. Large bathrooms but no tub. Ice only available by going to 12th floor.

Stayed one night and enjoyed my stay. The hotel is not directly next to a lot, however, it's within a few blocks of the magnificent mile & state street. We were able to walk to many different locations. For the people who are visiting from out of town, Gino's East Deep Pizza is directly across the street. I recommend the...

The location is not the best. We had a brick wall for a view. Only rooms facing the street have a view. A piece of wall molding fell and hit friend in head. Bar was closed even though sign said open Sunday. Only good thing is the restaurant is fabulous. When I go back to Chicago will stay elsewhere but...

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Blake when in town for a show at the Chicago theatre. We have been to Chicago multiple times and wanted to stay in the theatre district.

The staff is good here-actually really good, but the hotel misrepresents their offerings. Although they have a restaurant, the latest it stays open is 10pm-not 12:30am as is listed on their website. I found this out the hard way. I came back to my room from a day long conference, took a brief break, and 20 minutes later hopped onto...

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.
