The staff at the Hotel Blake was so friendly and welcoming. They were extremely helpful in directing us with dinner options as well. The rooms we had (2 rooms for our family) were both very spacious and comfortable as well as clean. We will definitely stay again.

I stayed at the Hotel Blake in early December for the first time. The staff were very professional, courteous, and helpful. The room I had was on the ninth floor. The room was very clean in every way possible, and away from the elevator. There were no street noises noted and was very quiet on that floor. I liked the... More

We love this hotel! It is in such a great location. We love walking and most things we like to do are within walking distance of a few blocks. If it's something we can't walk to, the bus system works great for us. There is a bus stop right across the street from the hotel. There is a lovely restaurant... More

This was our 2nd time at Hotel Blake and again the service was exceptional. This hotel is so convenient for downtown Chicago fun. I'm only giving a 3/5 this stay because we ended up on a very noisy side of the hotel. We were in room 903. I would request away from the alley, one, there isn't any view, and... More

The rooms were the largest I have seen in Chicago. They could use an update, but for the rate it exceeded my expectations. It's close to Soldier Field, Field Museum, Aquarium, etc. The staff was courteous and helpful. Also, the restaurant in the hotel was quite good.

Hotel was clean and in a good location. We did have a problem with water leaking on carpet from bathroom after taking a shower and needed to move all our stuff to another room but we're pleased with how quickly the staff addressed the problem and didn't hesitate in having us move down the hall after seeing the water problem.

Spacious comfortable rooms in a modernized historic building. Unusually quiet rooms. Not disturbed from noise both outside the building and from corridor traffic. One ice machine is just off elevator on top floor where there are no guest rooms. Cavernous bathroom was only disappointment. Curtainless shower resulted in a pool of water in front of toilet, sopping the floor mat.... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood 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.
