Hotel Blake exceeded our expectations! The location was great. We were within walking distance to all the major attractions, theatre and wonderful restaurants. We felt very safe being out and about. We loved the architecture of the building. The spaciousness and bright and modern decor of the common areas was nice. The entire hotel was very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the comfort of our room. It too was spacious, bright and modern. We appreciated the walk in shower. The staff was AMAZING! The front desk person who checked us in was polite, friendly and very accommodating. Al suggested some great restaurants and have great recommendations for entertainment. Showtime was very helpful with navigation. Every staff member that we encountered was cordial and very friendly. It seemed like a very positive and rewarding work environment. This was our first trip to Chicago. We will certainly go back and definitely stay at the Hotel Blake.

This was a phenomenal location in Chicago. Many attractions are easily walkable from here, and if you have to go further, both the EL and the CTA Bus lines are very near the hotel. This is one of the better located properties. The rooms were nicely appointed and had a wonderful shower, which is very nice for an older hotel.
