Our group just finished a 2 night stay at the Blake, using 25 rooms, and had a great time. The pre-trip administrative details were all taken care of efficiently by Andy and his sales team. Check in was a breeze -- all of our rooms were exactly as requested on our rooming list and key cards were pulled and alphabetized... More

We checked in on Friday after 5 pm. The room was small but clean. When we asked for a recommendation on a few places to eat in the area the staff only gave us one hotel. And then gave us a coupon with her name on it. (I am thinking they get some sort of kickback for this). The staff... More

First off the staff was amazing! Always helpful with whatever we needed! The rooms were clean and the beds/pillows were very comfortable! The only issue we did have was that our door kept giving us issues when trying to open it. It wouldn't unlock even though the light turned green. We had to try at least 10 times. We did... More

The valet service was appalling. I immediately learned on the first day that I need to call 15-20 minutes in advance. Well so I thought. It would still take another 15 minutes to get the car even after calling in advance. I was never greeted by the valet service. I have never experienced such service at a hotel that offers... More

I was there for a couple of nights and everything was great from check in to check out. Our bus was late but the sales manager stayed there late to welcome us with a smile. Kim, JT and the overnight auditor was always happy, helpful and smiling. Kim went out of her way to make sure i got the extra... More

My friends and I only stayed there one night but we enjoyed our time there. The staff was friendly. The main elevator was broken so we had to use the staff/service elevator. There isn't a lot of room to park and unload your car so we had to circle the block until we were able to "create our own spot".... More

We stayed at The Blake this past weekend and it was not the best stay. Our original room had a broken curtain, no number on the door, the air did not work, and the window paint was peeling. Once we figured out the air was not working we called the front desk and they did accommodate us with an upgraded... More

I must be honest and say that prior to booking my room at The Blake Hotel I was a tad bit apprehensive. Many of the reviews had me concerned. But I decided to take a chance and book a room... And btw I was only staying one night so how bad could it really be? But when my family and... More

We recently had the pleasure of staying at The Blake Hotel, and it was Absolutely a Wonderful Experience. We received such excellent service from everyone. I knew our stay would be a Special One, by my first conversation with Andy, the Director of Sales. Both Andy and Alyson,the Sales Coordinator, truly went over and beyond to make our stay at... More
