“Large rooms, good value”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Asmazed by the size of the room and bathroom; comfortable but not ostentatious. Staff friendly, wi-fi worked well.
Bathroom had a great shower!
Neighborhood is pleasant - close to downtown, but less busy. Plenty of restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for room higher up or with a view.

Lovely property, great people, great room. I was in Chicago visiting my company headquarter and this is the best Souith Loop hotel I have found. The adjoinign restaurant was fine, as is Gino's across the street. I will be back next trip to Chicago!

This was a disappointment. I was originally booked at the Chicago Hilton for a convention, but due to overbooking, I was sent here. The staff at the front desk was polite and knowledgable. The room itself was the problem. The bathroom was dingy. The toilet was broken - the tank top was from a different toilet and it didn't fit. The toilet didn't flush. There was no hot water in the shower. The bed was very squeaky. - almost every time I moved I dealt with noise. I was given a room right off the elevator, which can often be noisy. This was not. It was quiet. I'm lucky I was there less than 12 hours total, and all I did was sleep.

Hey our stay there was great! We stayed for 5 nights in February. Yes it was freezing in the city but it sure felt great to come back to our rom. The room was much larger than expected. the staff was attentive and polite. We had a package that included breakfast. It was great and well worth it. There is a bus stop in front of the hotel and the "El" 1.5 blks. And hey Genos across the street.

I stay in downtown Chicago quite often but had never been to the Hotel Blake before. It is in a good location, about 7 blocks from Union Station and about the same distance from Michigan Avenue at Grant Park. It is near the Museum Campus, the Institute of Arts and the theater district. It is maybe a mile or so from the miracle mile area. The rooms were in excellent condition and very large, probably almost twice the size of the standard double room, and this had two queen beds. The bath was nice, well equipped and very new and clean. The staff was excellent. I would definitely stay here again! Highly recommended.

My wife and daughter just got back form a three night stay at the Hotel Blake, and they loved it. They thought that the room was very comfortable and clean,and the hotel was very convienently located, especially in terms of eating eastablishments. But they really raved about the staff. They were very friendly, professional, and most of all, helpful. When I saked them if they would stay there again, they both answered with a resounding "Yes!"

I recently stayed at the Hotel Blake for 2 nights for my first time in Chicago. It was an excellent stay. The staff at Hotel Blake were awesome, providing professional and friendly service that really made my stay worthwhile. The doorman, Showtime, was extremely helpful with finding entertainment at night. The rest of the staff that helped me, including Michael, Rachel, Lisa and Dan, were also awesome.

The rooms were quite large and spacious, with vaulted ceilings and huge bathrooms. Definitely excellent value for the price. The room was clean and comfortable. A minibar would've been nice.

The location was great, close to everything you would need in downtown Chicago. Be sure to check out the restaurant attached to the hotel, Cafe meli. The food and service there was excellent as well.

I had a great time at the Blake and I would definitely stay there again or recommend it to others.
