The hotel was small but very nice looking. The "deluxe king" rooms are very tiny, large enough for a bed and desk but not much more. There are no refrigerators or microwaves in the room or evidently on the property. The free breakfast is just flat out pathetic. Your choices are fruit or mini-muffins that's it! Good luck ordering off... More

I just returned from an over-night stay in Chicago for the Rock n Roll Half Marathon. I booked this hotel because it was reasonably priced (for a weekend stay in downtown Chicago) and relatively close to the start/finish line of the race. I was pleasantly surprised by the genuine friendliness of the staff. Everyone I encountered was exceptionally pleasant (and... More

This hotel is in a great location, very close to downtown Chicago, and a short walk to a Blue Line L station. The staff were very friendly, the room was clean and had coffee facilities (no fridge), there was a minimal breakfast (just enough to get one started for the day, until about 10!) and free wireless internet. Overall, it... More

Especially in an older building, cleanliness is important. Dusty lampshades, sticky floors and concierge countertop added to my dismal view of the hotel. Add to this the lack of a washcloth and a view of a sheer brick wall (all back side rooms) really dumbfounded me. When I called to get a washcloth, the staff stated that they didn't think... More

I'm so sorry to hear that you weren't satisfied with your stay at the Wyndham Blake. The service you have described is unacceptable and certainly not up to the standards we strive to provide for our guests. While we will certainly address all of your complaints with our staff members, we want to make sure that this is properly addressed... More

I stayed at this this hotel for a week during a business conference. Although it was a convenient location to the Federal Building, it is a few blocks from the bustling Michigan Avenue - where most of the restaurants and sights are. The room itself was a nice size, clean with a very large bathroom. A mini frig would have... More

On a busy weekend (Lollapalooza Festival) where most downtown Chicago hotels were full, we were lucky to find a room at this hotel which also happened to be extremely close to the festival entrance. We usually stay at the Hard Rock Hotel or the Intercontinental. The Wyndham Blake was nice, our room was recently updated and very clean. My two... More

The desk staff & concierge were always cheerfully helpful and the place was spotless! A classic ambience, with a luxury feel and just the necessities for a great stay, particularly the best beds ever!! Perfect distance for even a couch potato to have walked everywhere for 3 days straight to see EVERYTHING! When legs got tired, the public transit was... More

Firstly, if you are going to stay here book directly through the hotel. They stupidly only sell king size beds to the travel companies (expedia etc) no matter how many people you said are staying in a room. Therefore, we had 4 ppl and one king size bed. The bed was not big enough for all of us. We had... More

Family trip to see McCartney at Wrigley field. Great location - subway 1/2 a block away. Bit of a hike to Milleneum park and shopping, but not too bad if you like to walk. Hotel was clean, rooms well appointed - great showers. Only 'nits' were that there was a some mold on the bathroom calking and the air conditioning... More

Arrived early and was able to store luggage and park car. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and quiet - bed comfortable - flat screen television and walk-in shower. Great location to Millenium park and Art Institue as well as other sights. We stayed on the 8th floor - no elevator on that floor - you had to... More
