I trawled for a long time on line to find a place in Chicago not knowing the area, there were a lot of positive reviews for the Hotel Blake and the free wifi was the final clincher for me. From the moment I checked in the experience the experience was fantastic. Ian & Katherine on the front desk did everything... More

In Chicago for business. Selected this hotel because it was close to my business. The staff was professional and accommodating. I ate at the restaurant downstairs. It too was excellent. The room was great. I will stay there again.

Comfortable room. The bathroom was great. The concierge "Showtime" was great, he was funny and had lot of good info about the city, especially about using public transportation instead of driving.

The hotel is in a great location. Convenient to the "El" blue line for the airport and red line for commuting through downtown Chicago. The staff is friendly and willing to help. The cleaning staff did a good job, as the hotel was clean, but they took a while to get around to all the rooms. The hotel offers continental... More

Our 4 night stay at the Hotel Blake was just okay. Housekeeping did not show up until late afternoon usually. The hotel looked like it had been nicer in previous times (i.e. a plate in the bureau for a fridge/mini bar but no fridge at all) but had fallen downhill. One morning there was no hot water for over an... More

I love this place. From the moment I called them after getting off the "orange" train, their staff told me which way to go to get to the hotel. I was greeted by beautiful and friendly staff everytime I walk in and out of the lobby. The room was awesome with a really cool walk in shower, it was about... More

Hotel Blake was a good choice for our particular needs...my 14-year-old daughter and I travelled to Chicago for a long weekend prior to checking her into University Center (a block away) for a summer program. We arrived at 10am, and the doorman was very prompt about unloading our luggage from the taxi. My daughter had come down with something the... More
