Went to the Hotel Blake with some friends to go to the baseball game. We had an excellent experience overall. From the moment we entered, everyone was helpful. The hotel has a city bicycle route in front of it so when you arrive you should pull up to the cones but not directly to the curb or you will be... More

We stayed for 3 nights, Thursday through Sunday. We loved the location of this hotel. We are walkers and being outside the loop was no problem. The hotel size is what we prefer and the room was nice. It is very good value, $575.00 plus tax for the 3 nights.If you are expecting 5 star you will be disappointed, but... More

The personnel were helpful and congenial. Rooms were spacious and clean. I have stayed here before and was pleasantly surprised with the addition of the restaurant. This was a major plus and a much needed service for your guests. Will be back!!!

My wife, grandson & I were stranded in Chicago about 9:00 P.M. as a result of missing our Amtrak connection. We called the Blake and were given two options for the night even though Amtrak swore there were no available rooms in the city. We found the room we selected to be very clean, up to date and reasonably priced... More

I stayed at Hotel Blake this past weekend for one night as I was looking to stay in a one of a kind and relatively affordable South Loop Hotel. The Hotel was set up in a corridor layout, was 9 stories high, and seemed like it had potential to be converted to a Downtown Luxury Apartment complex if necessary. The... More

I was very dissappointed in the quailty of the hotel an dstaff. From the moment I arrived it seemed as if they didn't want or need my business. The doorman yelled at me for parking in the bicycle lane, yet never gave another option...and never apologized. They didn't have signage, and he wasn't outside to help direct you where to... More

Stayed here for business. Great clean room and great service. "Showtime" our doorman was funny and helpful! Made reservation at Italian Village for us, when appetizers were ordered, restaurant staff brought us an additional appetizer compliments of " Showtime". Will definitely stay here again.

Hotel Blake is a good, affordable, clean option in the south loop. The valet's were terrific! They were helpful, friendly and had great recommendations, they were 5 star! I really enjoyed the champagne and chocolate in the early evening. Our room was well sized, I was disappointed that my husbands status in their reward program did not give us an... More

From arrival to departure the staff was helpful and fun. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The location was prime for everywhere we wanted to go and when we didn't walk, we had easy access to the bikes. Stayed here through Bluegreen Vacations & will definitely return.

The Hotel Blake has an excellent location on Printer's Row in the South Loop. Very convenient and easy to get to Union Station and the El. The concierge, Showtime, is very helpful and always seems to have a good tip for dinner or a show. The front desk staff was also very nice and easy to work with. Everything at... More
