We come to the Blake every year when we go to the christkindalmart. Love the door man Showtime. He's always full of life, friendly and knows where everything is in town. The rooms are clean and nice size. Nice bathrooms.

Hotel Blake combines old-school hospitality with modern luxury. The room was fully stocked and the service was exceptional at every level. If you need information or recommendations for dining or entertainment, just ask "Showtime" at the door. He's got the scoop and will set up any arrangements.

This was a great hotel. Funny because the person that made the reservation confused it with "The Drake" so there was a scare when that was NOT where we were booked. Smaller lobby but WOW the room and bathroom were extremely spacious, high end & everything was tastefully decorated. Likely the largest room I've stayed in outside of a suite.... More

Stayed for one night. The price was reasonable, the room was spacious and the bathroom was beautiful. I liked the raindrop shower head. Only thing I noticed was the in-room temperature control was not very responsive, but then again, who expects to need to cool off in Chicago during November! This is convenient to a business partner so I am... More

This boutique hotel is very lovely. Spacious rooms. The highlight of this hotel is the staff ( Showtime, Alex and Domingue). Given the minor challenges, the made the stay worthwhile. Very convenient to many restaurants. Easy Access to both Congress, Harrison and Michigan streets. Very close to entertainment hotspots like Jazz showcase and Buddy Guy Legend.

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.
