“Great Location and Wonderful Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I stayed at the Wyndham Blake from Thursday 27th to Monday 31st December 2012 and I couldn't fault anything. The location was great being only a block away from metro lines and major bus routes. I got the train from O'Hare airport to La Salle station (2 minutes from hotel) for only $2.50!!!
Major bus routes from the hotel took you to Soldier Field, Navy Pier and Lincoln Park Zoo. If you didn't want to take the transport, you could walk to so many locations including the mile to the start of the 'Magnificent Mile' on Michigan Avenue for all the shops, but there was so many other shops to visit before even hitting the 'Magnificent Mile'
The hotel didn't have a restaurant, but there was two close by (sorry i can't remember the names), where you could go and eat and receive a 10% discount if you showed them your room card. Also the famous Gino's East (as seen on Man v Food) was right across the road serving up awesome pizzas.
The hotel was very clean, tidy and bright with maid service everyday. I had a big room with a lovely king size bed that was a dream to sleep in. Bathroom was a luxury size with two sinks and large glass fronted walk in shower. The large 32" (i think) Samsung tv was a great touch also. I really couldn't have been happier with this hotel and the service received from the front desk and bell boys was the friendliest i have experienced in a long time.

If anyone else would like more information or pictures, please feel free to contact me

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Staff was excellent. We stayed here on our 1-year anniversary, and would love to stay here again.

The room was HUGE, and we loved it! Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Location is perfect! We were able to walk to everything we wanted to see.

When we left, we only had to walk a short distance to catch the Orange 'L' train back to the airport. SUPER CONVENIENT!

If we *had* to complain about anything, it would be:
- No fan in the bathroom
- Bathroom really echoes
- No full door on the shower
- WiFi was fair, but occasionally dropped out.

Other than the WiFi (which we really depend on), there was really nothing to complain about. These are just observations.

We'll be coming back to Chicago with our kids next time, and will definitely stay here again!

We chose this hotel for a 3-day weekend stay, and we're so glad we did. The service was consistently friendly, the room was huge, clean, and well-appointed, and the location was ideal for enjoying central Chicago and taking public transport to more distant attractions. The value for money was truly excellent, as we found a good rate on Expedia, and we'll happily stay there again.
