We flew into O'Hare on Wednesday, 11.21.12 and spent one night in Chicago before driving out of town to visit family for Thanksgiving. The Wyndham Blake was easy to get to from the airport, valet parking made check-in simple. Although the hotel no longer operates a restaurant, there is a bar/lounge in the lobby and there many dining choices within walking distance (we went to Gino's East right across the street -- it was excellent!). The room was clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. We stayed in room 208 and it was surprisingly quiet - despite the second-floor windows overlooking the street and its location near the elevator. The free wifi worked well. We didn't get the Continental breakfast because we wanted to get out of town before the Thanksgiving Day Parade started. We did go for a walk early in the morning though. There is a Starbuck's on the corner and it's just a short walk to Michigan Ave., the lakeshore, parks and Buckingham Fountain. If you love Chicago (or would like to see it for the first time), this location is close to some of the city's most interesting sights. We will likely stay there again next Thanksgiving. Overall, the price we paid was very reasonable and the Wyndham exceeded our expectations.
