This place is great! An older hotel, but completely renovated and in the heart of all the action. Walking distance to everything - theatres, restaurants, tourist attractions. Loved the boat ride through the city.

We really enjoyed our week staying at hotel Blake . The room is comfortable and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located near to the CTA train stations and bus stations . It is within walking distance to the Millenium park and to other attractions . There are good restaurants located a few blocks from the hotel . We walked so much everyday to explore the city so we were lucky to find a good foot massage shop across the street from the hotel that helped to soothe our tiring feet . We will definitely recommend hotel Blake to our friends and relatives . Many thanks to the staff at hotel Blake that helped to make our stay so pleasant and comfortable .

We loved our stay at the Blake Hotel. The room is spacious, updated and comfortable. It was very clean and kept clean during our entire stay. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Located in the south side of downtown and conveniently near the loop (you do not hear the train). Will definitely recommend and stay again.

Hotel Blake is in a great central location. You can walk to many Chicago tourist attractions. The hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly. If you need anything just talk to Showtime! He will take care of recommendations, reservations or car service!

Loved this hotel!! The staff were ALL incredibly friendly and helpful. There was always at least one staff member or more to greet you both coming in and leaving the hotel. Ready to answer any questions. Our first night there we got in late and were hungry. Showtime pointed us to a great sports bar, First Draft, that had great food!! The location was great for walking to so many sites. I would absolutely stay here again.

Good location, close to most attractions. Staff are friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. The coffee in the room was tasty and replenished everyday. The street was noisy but that is to be expected with being downtown.

We did a timeshare exchange through RCI - this is a hotel, not your typical timeshare. We were happy with the size of our room - it had a microwave, small refrigerator and a lighted makeup mirror. The room only had one chair but when we asked for another one, they sent one to our room promptly. I was happy that our room was cleaned everyday and we were given clean towels daily. There is a water dispenser with hot and cold water on the 6th floor in the exercise room. There is coffee and tea available in the lobby from 6-10 a.m. We enjoyed Pizano’s Pizza and Magnolia Bakery (excellent carrot cake and carrot cake pudding). We were able to use the public transit system with no issues. If you enjoy Tiffany stained glass and old architecture, I highly recommend the Driehaus Museum and the Chicago Cultural Center (be sure to sign up for the free public tour).
