After an entire day of travel, I finally arrived at the hotel I had reserved. Frustrated to learn that they oversold and "walked" me to another hotel. Arrived at The Blake cranky and exhausted. Staff was extremely empathetic, helpful, and efficient. Sent me immediately to the restaurant because it was closing--where I was greeted by an equally great staff and... More

This lovely boutique Hotel is easy to get to, a snap to unload or load with a well marked dedicated lane, and just a quick hike to Buckingham Fountain and the Lake Shore. From there it is a safe hike North to Navy Pier or South to the Museums, Shedd Aquarium and Adler Planitarium. Views day and night are unparalleled... More

I have stayed at Hotel Blake multiple times while in Chicago on business. The staff was great and very helpful in all of my stays, helping me with restaurants, car services, and general attractions. Loved the 'happy hour' in the lounge where you can mingle with other out of town business guests. Easy walking to dining, drinks, attractions, and theaters.... More

The Hotel Blake is a nice option if you are planning a trip to Chicago either on business or pleasure. Located just 2 blocks west of Michigan Ave and 1 block south of Congress on South Dearborn. Easy access to buses and the "L". "Showtime" the doorman is a wealth of information on restaurants and things to do. We have... More

Upon arriving we we're questioning how to pull up at the front of the hotel. Called front desk and was told they were sending someone out to help, which happen to be a man who called himself Showtime. I must say he shows his self to be very friendly.

I stayed at Hotel Blake on a business trip to Chicago. The room was nice and spacious, very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent and the hotel bar very welcoming. All the staff went the extra mile in all ways and recommended some great places to eat. Good location for getting around Chicago as well. Would stay again.

We stayed here for five nights and loved it. The room was spacious, had plenty of storage space,a microwave and fridge. The people who work there could not be nicer. The location is also great. Close to several train and subway lines and walking distance to many attractions.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

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.
