Wonderful hotel in nice location. Our room was clean and well appointed. Hotel staff were very friendly, especially the front desk(Gary) and the doorman/bellman. Jesse was very helpful upon our arrival, telling us about the hotel, room and the surrounding area. Plenty of places to eat near hotel.

Stayed 2 nights so we could visit Columbia College and explore Chicago. Because Hotel Blake is away from all the bustle of Magnificent Mile it was a bargain. It's so easy to get around Chicago on the trains and buses you shouldn't be afraid to be a little out of the way. Parking was $25 less a night too.

Very friendly staff. Convenient location to many attractions within about a mile walk or a $5-6 cab ride. The attached restaurant and bar, Meli, has a wide variety of selections at reasonable prices for the city.

Attended a business meeting held on site. The hotel staff were great. We needed non-feather pillows and they were delivered within 15 minutes. The room was large, the bathroom as well; but the bathroom ceiling showed water spots and we didn't know if they were new or old. The street noise was noticeable at night even though we were on...

A friend and I took a long weekend trip for Chicago. Travelling on a budget in a big city and we thought that meant we'd have to sacrifice a bit, but Hotel Blake was absolutely gorgeous.

This hotel is located in the south loop close to public transportation and walking distance to downtown. The lobby is nicely decorated and the staff very helpful if there are any problems. Valet parking is $48/day with in-and-out privileges. There is a lot around the corner for $36/day but no in-and-out. Rooms are nice, nothing fancy. I believe the beds...

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.
