This was a nice hotel with a competitive price. It was a little further south than we would have liked, but not to far from "L". The best part of our stay was "showtime" our conciere. Very helpful and very friendly!!!! It was like comming home every evening with how we were greeted by "showtime". Keep up the good work.

When we go to Chicago, The Blake is where we always stay. This place is quiet, clean and fun. Showtime is the best part of the stay. He is the doorman who not only greets you with a smile but always has a joke to tell me. I love the BLAKE

I stayed here four days in February-March 2014 while attending a conference a block away. The service (especially Greg at the concierge desk) was friendly and helpful, the room was roomy and well appointed, and the location and price were fabulous. Highly recommend this hotel and will stay there every time I come to Chicago (unless they drastically raise the rates). Thanks to the staff for making my stay so enjoyable.

Me and my husband stayed here over the weekend for our anniversary. I went out on a whim on price lines "name your price" and ended to getting a great rate on this hotel. Not really knowing what to expect. But not only were the rooms VERY nice and spacious but we have NEVER been greeted so friendly at any hotel we have stayed at! We even received a phone call from Michael upon arriving to our room making sure we were content and didn't need anything! The cafe next door was excellent as well!! Will definitely come back!!!

Visited the Blake 4 -6 March room 1102 I had a very late check in but the front desk were very helpful with my car. Once in the room I notice it was very hot. I adjusted the controls on the heater however the heater had a mind of its own. I even turned it off per the instruction of the front desk and the heater came back on. So the first night was a sweat box. The second night was alittle better after I open all the windows. So I hear the hotel had room service, starting from 0630am - 1130pm. After a night of sweating and tossing and turning I felt very hungry. I call room service at about 0645am, no answer. I called again 0650. No answer. I call again and again and again, guess what? No answer. I call the front desk, the desk tries to connect me... no answer. So I get dress and visit the restaurant. I entered and was seated at around 800 am. I asked the greeter about room service and she stated, yes we have room service, i stated, well I call several times with no answer, and she states, well someone was here. That conversation ended. The food was terrific by the way. Flamenco omelet, outstanding!!! . So I finish breakfast and head back to the hottest room I've ever been in.

While our room has some minor maintenance issues, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the staff. We did not go to the bar (open 5-9 p.m. nightly) or the restaurant. We have favorite restaurants around town that we enjoy. Very convenient to the Red Line so you can park your car & get around Chicago easily. We did self park (garage 1 block away) but could do valet (parked at same location). We expected there to be a trash can and a recycling can - but no recycling program at the hotel.
