Finding a nice and moderately priced motel in Chicago with a good location without being directly on Michigan Avenue is not an easy feat, however, we struck gold on Hotel Blake. There are specials offered on the internet as our friends acquired a room for a reasonable "Chicago" price. As a Bluegreen Resort member, we were able to reserve a lovely room with member points. Hotel Blake is located on Dearborn and two blocks from Michigan Avenue. It is about six blocks from Willis Tower. Gino's Chicago Style Pizza and a Starbucks is right across the street. There is a nice restaurant on site, which became our last stop of the evening for a drink and a really great dessert (earned after lots of walking) Public transportation is a block away. Lots of good restaurants are within walking distance. Hotel Blake is clean, comfortable and quiet. We heard very little street noise. The hotel staff is beyond nice and helpful. Shout out to Rachel, Cait and Showtime. They were very helpful in recommending restaurants, routes to walk, acquiring tickets with discounts... you name it and they were willing to help in any way. Super service. On the negative side... the parking. You might as well pay for valet parking at a rate of 48.00 as you can take your car in and out for the same fee. It is convenient and parking is usually expensive in the area, especially if you plan to use your car during your stay. There is a parking lane right in front of the hotel for loading and unloading with bellman to help. There is WiFi, fused water, newspapers and comfortable seating in the lobby area and a business area with computers. The restaurant on location served breakfast, lunch and dinner. I am not sure that there is anything lacking here. AND Garrett's Popcorn is a simple block and a half away! It is simply a great place to stay.
