My Husband and I have been to Chicago thousands of times, though we have never stayed at the Wyndham Blake. Upon our arrival we were checked in by Shelly, who was so friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean and I just loved the decor! Once we were settled we were advised to go to the Purple Pig for... More

I enjoyed everything about this hotel except that the room reeked of mold. I would have thought it was an isolated incident until I read that many guests have experienced the same thing. That tells me the hotel knows of the problem and isn't fixing it. They stick unknowing guests in these rooms and hope they don't complain.

This hotel is close to the loop and less expensive than many Chicago hotels. The beds are very comfortable and the staff is welcoming, polite and exceptionally personable and helpful. There are many restaurants within walking distance and a Starbucks less than a block away. Many attractions are easily accessible by public transportation. We rode the Orange Line from Midway...

Stayed for four nights in March 2012. The hotel is ideally located just one block from the blue L train station that takes you directly from and to O'Hare. The room was very large and the King size beds where probably the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in in a hotel. I was given a room on the... More

Hotel is located in a great location and close to everything. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Price is hit and miss as sometimes I find they have great deals on and sometimes they are more pricey. Rooms are clean and well designed. Will return when price is reasonable.

I live in the suburbs, but stayed here on a day when I had a 5K in the morining and a concert at night, so it was perfect in location, price, and ammenities for what I needed. From the outside it didn't really look like a hotel, so I was not sure, but once inside, it is nice enough to... More

I have stayed at three hotels in the South Loop and this one is by far the most fun. We entered to find a, bustling, unpretentious, "hip" lobby with a cheerful staff and a gregarious concierge/doorman. Wine, beer, and restaurant advise were available in the lobby. The room was spacious, quiet, and clean. It is in a cute little neighborhood... More

I though this hotel was fine. The room I had was absolutely enormous. Larger than a studio apartment. Bathroom was a bit dated but still acceptable with double sinks, good water pressure and big shower head. The features of the room were good, massive bed, flat screen tv, coffee maker. It would have been nice to have a mini fridge... More

It all started with a huge disappointment: After a long flight we arrived at about 11 pm at the Wyndham Blake and were told that they had had some water damage in our room and that we wouldn’t be able to stay at the hotel for that night. That is definitely not something you want to hear after a long... 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.
