My dear friend (who had never been to Chicago) and I spent about four days in Chicago while staying at the Wyndham Blake Hotel in the downtown area. The hotel is one of your older classic establishments reminiscent of your ornate and pre-fifties architectural design. Of course the hotel has had numerous updates to accommodate modern times, while still retaining its elegant beauty. The queen bed room we shared was of ample size with a decent view of Dearborn Street. The staff was more than accommodating with suggestions for making our stay the most enjoyable. All of the Concierges were extremely friendly and fun-loving. In fact, one gentleman named Showtime kept us laughing the whole time we stayed. We were able to walk to downtown, all the great restaurants and even got a 3-day bus pass to take us anywhere we wanted to go like infamous Navy Pier, fabulous North Michigan Avenue and Chicken & Waffles Restaurant on the South-side. The people-watching on the bus was perhaps the most entertaining of all (like reality TV). Overall, it was a fantastic trip at a first-class hotel. The only downside was not having a restaurant in the hotel itself (although Potbelly's was right next door). I would definitely stay here again!
