Between a 2.5 and 3.
First this is confusing b/c it is now called the Blake Hotel. I don't think it was worth the almost $200 a night, but was the best price I could find for the weekend booked a month in advance (due to several conferences).
Room: spacious, clean, but messy/ inconsistent renovations (patches by replaced thermostat, MISSING full length mirror in bathroom but sill had mirror hooks and glue on door...) peeling wallpaper - we had the room by the service elevator, which I wish I would have switched, but it wasn't as noisy as I expected. Didn't like the linens - comforter was a thin and polyester - like a curtain.
Service: Staff was very helpful and nice
Amenities: free wifi! limited room service (didn't use), fridge and microwave in room, vending machines and small snack selection in lobby.
A friend stayed at the Hilton 1/2 a block away - almost twice the price, smaller but more updated room and more hotel amenities - I'd still pay less and stay at the Blake.
