The rooms vary but ours was a nice sized room with 2 queen beds. ( we only needed one). It has a fridge and microwave. Has a desk, free wifi, a good size bathroom with a walk in shower. You are in walking distance to numerous restaurants, millineum park. They charge $55 per day for valet parking. We went to spot hero website and paid $126 total for 7 nights with in and out privileges. It was about 4-5 blocks from the hotel. I never had used it but it worked just like the website said. The hotel was nice and the restaurant attached to it had a very good breakfast. We spent $40 on a breakfast for 2. I thought that was high for breakfast. By the way, when we arrived we were greeted by "Showtime". He was great. He was very funny and did his job very well. He answered all my questions and was very informative about the area.

Room Tip: We were in room 503. It had a alley view. I know some had city views.

I stayed here for 5 nights and had a great stay. The room was large, clean and had all the amenities you need (sitting area and table, desk, fridge, inroom safe, iron, coffee maker etc.)

Front desk staff were great and the room was cleaned well everyday. Also the price we paid was really good for a major city downtown, so the value was excellent.

The location was fantastic for access to public transit. All the CTA lines that come downtown where less than a 5 minute walk away.

Man, the very best hotel I've ever stayed at. First it's on the historic registry...located on printing press row...and still has some of its charm but with the modern accommodations. Second, the valets/greeters (Mike and Showtime) made sure we were taken care of...gave us a ton of recommendations...and none failed. I made this trip with my 17 and 16 year old daughters. We were celebrating my 16 yr old's birthday. Mike sang Happy Birthday to here in the lobby. We had tickets to Aladdin at 730, but didn't get to our room until 6. Showtime told us to try Italian Village after the show and to ask for Roberto (in an Italian accent). That's another review, but Roberto took care of Showtime's friends! It was awesome. Showtime helped us to the subway one night and suggested where to get some deep dish pizza. NONE of his recommendations failed! The evening crew, James and Tim, we're so helpful with transportation info...routes, which train lines to take, closest stations, etc. And the day crew, Zakkiyyah and Dominick, were so sweet. They heard we were celebrating my daughter's sweet 16, and when we got back from our day of exploring there was a birthday basket with a note waiting on us in our room.

Third, it was close to a majority of downtown/Navy Pier stuff. If what you're doing isn't close by, I guarantee there's a city bus or train station within 1-3 blocks that will get you there. Where we live, public transportation isn't common. Most people own their own vehicles and drive where they need to. So navigating pickups/dropoffs, train stations, which train going which way could have been daunting, but it wasn't...especially with the help of the Hotel Blake staff.

The hotel beds could have been a bit more comfortable, but the hotel did seem to go out of their way for your comfort. They even provided ear plugs on the night stand to block out the city noise. It didn't bother me or either of my daughters.

And I want to say...Chicagoans are some of the friendliest people. SWEAR! We never felt unsafe. I feel more unsafe in downtown Little Rock than downtown Chicago.
