We loved the stay at this hotel, the rooms are very cozy and comfortable. Oh, how can i forget the bed in our room, i miss it every night now. I have never had such a wonderful sleep in a hotel bed, i enjoyed my room. After a long day of site seeing, we used to be excited to come back to our room, coz it was very relaxing and comfy. The hotel is on S Dearborn St which is the right place to stay if you are planning for site seeing and shopping in Chicago.

Room Tip: I believe the new wifi rooms have cozier beds and much spacious rooms.

My husband and I stayed at Blake Windham in October 2011, a very friendly staff greeted us with a free room upgrade, which was very spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. The room was always spotless. The staff was always friendly and willing to help, ¨Showtime¨ was amazing!

I can not wait to return again to Whindham Blake in Chicago!!

I stayed for 3 nights during Halloween weekend. The staff at the hotel (Gina, Loren, and Showtime) were welcoming, knowledgeable, and friendly. The room was clean and spacious. The hotel is located 2 to 3 blocks from all the major train lines and a few blocks from Michigan Avenue and easy walking to Millenium Park. The price was very reasonable. Great stay! Near some great restaurants (Waffles!) a great blues club (Buddy Guy's Legend). I would stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room high up to avoid some noise from the street.

LOVED this hotel!! I am home but I miss the pillows! We had a great stay. Great location and nice neighborhood. Close to coffee, sports/casual bars and good food! The little market down the street on Saturday was a welcome treat for stocking our backpacks for our flight home with fresh WI cheese fruit and fresh bread/muffins :) The staff was really nice and friendly. Rooms were very nice and the beds and pillows very comfy! A burger at Blackie's and a beer at Kasey's should be on your list. The Custom House Tavern had a great choice of wines and good beer. We walked to Millenium Park and back. Strolled to State St. Friends took nice runs in the morning. Would definitely stay here again!!!

I stayed at this hotel for a few nights while on business in Chicago in October 2011. My main criticism of this hotel would be that it is expensive. However that may be unreasonable given the prices of other hotels in Chicago.

On the positive side, it is close to a subway station that links directly to O'Hare airport and is within walking distance of the centre of Chicago. The staff are friendly and the rooms are good. There is a small fitness centre that is convenient to use. I didn't take breakfast in the hotel but there are plenty of good-value breakfast options nearby.

A final negative point is that roadworks nearby made access to the hotel a little difficult. I imagine these roadworks will continue for three to six months after October 2011.

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us feedback on your stay at the Wyndham Blake. You are correct in your assumption of the rates in downtown Chicago. There are certain times in Chicago that are compressed due to citywide conventions and other events. This will cause rates to be slightly more expensive. The construction will last for a little while longer, but have found that it is normally not an issue in accessing the hotel since it is not in front of the hotel. We do hope that you will visit Chicago again and stay with us. Again, thank you so much for writing.

We have stayed at numerous hotels in the area while our son looked at various colleges before selecting Columbia College and now we only stay at The Blake. The location is great for meeting our son and close to subway if we want to venture further. The in and out parking is reasonably priced and quite handy when we take our son to Costco to refill his frig and visit his favorite restaurant, Kuma’s Corner, which is not easily reached by subway. The rooms are nice sized, clean and quiet upgrades appear each time we stay. The staff is consistent; I think the same person picks up the phone every time I call for reservations and even the bell person seems to remember everyone. If we encounter a problem, it is addressed right away – only happened once but was resolved to our satisfaction. It has a feel of nice small boutique hotel rather than large overblown chain. We had some concerns when it became a Wyndham, but the fears were ungrounded and in fact improvements have been noticeable. The nightly rates seem to fluctuate each time we stay but I check other hotels and they are below surrounding hotels. During the winter, we received some unbelievable rates. There is also a special rate for Columbia Parents – this is our hotel of choice, highly recommend.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the library make me smile.

The beds in this hotel were so comfortable that when I got home, I decided to go buy a new mattress. The continental breakfast was ordinary though, but if you're Australian like me you'll find all American continental breakfasts to be ordinary. Good location to the CTA train and subway lines. I would stay here again.
