The Bellmen are wonderful and know how to engage and entertain you as you come and go (they also have some awesome coupons and passes into some of the best bars and attractions, just ask). We...

My husband and I just spent the weekend in Chicago for our wedding anniversary. For the 2nd year in a row we chose to stay at The Blake. We were very happy with our accommodations and the service last year so we decided to return there. I had called ahead and asked for a quiet room away from the elevators...

The Hotel Blake was our home hub to access the best Chicago had to offer, for five days. Not being familiar with the city was no problem because Showtime was our concierge and unlocked the secrets to the "Hot Spots'. Thanks so much Showtime and The Blake!

My wife and I loved the hotel Blake. Great location, huge room, friendly staff. I would go back in a minute. I don't have time to write more right now and they are asking for 200 words. Okay, the restaurant was great - fabulous breakfast. Art Institute right around the corner. Many things to do in the loop - great...

When we were walking into the lobby area the man at the door gave us a shout of welcome and asked us where were from and if we had any questions he was there to answer those questions.

A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
