I'm in Chicago quarterly for a business program and typically extend my stay through the weekend. I'm been staying in a different hotel in the Loop each time. Hotel Blake is one of the best; I had an incredibly comfortable room with a lovely view of the library and the acroteria owls. Easy walking distance to anywhere you would want... More

in what appears to be a non-descriptive block the location is pretty decent, close to a drug store, 7-11, a Pot Belly restaurant in the attached building. The hotel is older, but the room was nice, good bed (which is all most of us really want) and not a lot of street noise, kind of a quieter street.

Awesome place. Nice and clean. Had a snafu with room service for breakfast, but they fixed it right away. Staff very quick to serve and happy to help. Nice central location and close to the red line to get to the Cubs game. Only draw back is the cost for parking.

Found the rate at this well located hotel very good on my "last minute" trip. The hotel is somewhat old but kept up nicely. Bed comfortable, room clean. Corridors a little difficult to walk because of " up and down" floor and several "step" areas. I walk with a cane. Would stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Blake. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was more than we expected. Larger than most "city" hotel rooms, well appointed and clean. The in hotel restaurant was equally nice with a greatenu and great staff.

Our room smells like smoke, and they told us they would have the made "hit it hard the next morning" 2nd time in Chicago and got a view of the ally from the seventh floor.. It was decent, but for what I paid for I question whether or not it... More

My toilet in the room was broken when I arrived. I left the tank lid off to show it wasn't working and the housekeeper just put it back on- still broken. My room wasn't clean when I got there and I had no hot water in the morning. The whole place seemed unkept.

Our experience at the Hotel Blake was pleasant. The staff were all extremely helpful. The lobby was modern and welcoming. The adjoining restaurant had a large menu, and the food was very good. The location is superb if you are touring downtown Chicago. Our only negatives involve flaws in the room (see comments below), and waitresses in the adjoining restaurant... 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.
