We have stayed at numerous hotels in the area while our son looked at various colleges before selecting Columbia College and now we only stay at The Blake. The location is great for meeting our son and close to subway if we want to venture further. The in and out parking is reasonably priced and quite handy when we take our son to Costco to refill his frig and visit his favorite restaurant, Kuma’s Corner, which is not easily reached by subway. The rooms are nice sized, clean and quiet upgrades appear each time we stay. The staff is consistent; I think the same person picks up the phone every time I call for reservations and even the bell person seems to remember everyone. If we encounter a problem, it is addressed right away – only happened once but was resolved to our satisfaction. It has a feel of nice small boutique hotel rather than large overblown chain. We had some concerns when it became a Wyndham, but the fears were ungrounded and in fact improvements have been noticeable. The nightly rates seem to fluctuate each time we stay but I check other hotels and they are below surrounding hotels. During the winter, we received some unbelievable rates. There is also a special rate for Columbia Parents – this is our hotel of choice, highly recommend.
