Michael Gamble made my visit wonderful! He was very helpful and wonderful to work with, he hailed taxis and greater me when I arrived back at the hotel.
The room was very lovely, loved the rain shower in the bathroom.

We spent the weekend at the Hotel Blake recently and were very pleased with the hotel ambiance, room and staff. The staff were welcoming and very helpful...always making sure we had everything we needed. The room was well appointed and very clean and very quiet...we didn't hear a peep from any other rooms...really the only thing we noticed was the occasional siren outside. The only negative we noticed was the light switch cover in the bathroom was cracked...seemed like a quick and cheap thing to fix. We took advantage of the valet parking. While it was $48 per day, it was well worth the convenience of not having to find or pay for parking. Our stay was wonderful and I would definitely stay there again.

Second stay in this hotel for four nights and can't say enough about it. Front Desk personnel are courteous and helpful and all three doormen take the time to talk to you, offer suggestions for places to shop, see, or eat, and generally make you feel like family. It's well run, the rooms are fairly large (been in both a double queen and a king) and the bathrooms are spacious (double sinks, walk-in shower, and plenty of outlets). Location is perfect - within just a few blocks to get on the Red or Orange line and the price is more than reasonable.

Hotel Blake is in an old building in Printers Row. The lobby is nice and the front desk staff are friendly. The room was open and had plenty of light with the big windows. The drapes are good to keep the city lights our of the room at night to sleep. Never made it to the gym, as I would rather walk on the lakefront, millennium park or wherever my feet take me.

The service and hotel were great. Have stayed here before and will gladly stay here again. Newer organic food restaurant is wonderful!
Hotel is close to colleges, parks and museums. Just a short walk to Michigan Ave.

I was in town to see some friends. I was impressed with this hotel. The room was very nice and the staff was some of the best that I have come across in a long time from the doorman to the front desk personal all very helpful. Close to most sites that every tourist would enjoy.
