My daughter and I recently traveled to Chicago for a couple of college visits and stayed at the Hotel Blake. Our room and bathroom were both surprisingly large, which we really enjoyed. We also found the employees at Hotel Blake to be very kind, helpful, and friendly. The hotel is close to the CTA (train) station, and there are several...

My Girlfriend and me had a wonderful time at Blake in Chicago. Rooms were spacious and tidy, staff was friendly and funny (especially Showtime) and the location is perfect, right in the heart of chicago. If you are looking for an inexpensive stay, look no further.

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.

My husband and I just spent the weekend in Chicago for our wedding anniversary. For the 2nd year in a row we chose to stay at The Blake. We were very happy with our accommodations and the service last year so we decided to return there. I had called ahead and asked for a quiet room away from the elevators...

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...

Neighbourhood Profile

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.
