This classical style hotel has the best doorman EVER. Mr. Showtime was extremely helpful, friendly and just downright entertaining. His service to this Hotel & it's guest is the reason we would gladly stay here again. Thank you Showtime for being a part of our wonderful trip to the windy city.

The service at The Blake was amazing. Very courteous and helpful. We especially appreciated the friendliness of the concierge; whenever we had to travel on public transit he was extremely helpful. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable.

Hotel Blake is one of our favorite places to stay in Chicago! This historic hotel is conveniently located on Dearborn near Congress and has convenient access to bus service and the subway system so you really won't need a car to get around. The Magnificent Mile is within walking distance as are Macy's, Nordstrom 's, the "Jewelry District", and Millennium... More

We booked our reservation through Bluegreen. The two double-beds room we got didn't have any view but was roomy and clean. The location of the hotel is not only easily accessible from the train stops but also only a 4-5 blocks of short walk to the Michigan Ave. Everyone in the hotel was nice and attentive, especially the front-desk people...

What a great stay with my best friend Margery! The staff was super helpful and professional. I had a personal interaction with Gina and Lauren. They were so helpful, and made our experience amazing! As a pilot, I stay at hotels half of the month for work and they made the stay feel like home.

I spent one night at the Blake Chicago. People at the reception were nice and friendly. The hotel is old but quite modern inside. My room with two double bed was quite large and clean. Wifi is free and works quite well. I liked the attached restaurant that offers nice breakfast options.

This was my first time here and I loved the desk staff, super-helpful bellman and the look of the place. The in house restaurant was also lovely. The housekeeping and maintenance didn't quite meet the standards of the lobby staff. Something was broken and something else hadn't been cleaned well. The lovely room lacked conveniently located outlets for my work... More

Excellent location, great place to stay. We loved this place. Our room was ready early which was a bonus. The room was big and had a decent view. Everything about this hotel was great. My only complaint was that it was loud at night. There were several fire trucks/ambulances during the night w sirens blaring. The next day, I saw... More

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
