Large size rooms .great staff. We faced a wall so we only got some road noise.sirens horns etc . definitely come back when we visit chicago again. Very near the taxi rides to museum aquarium etc and to theatre area. Can walk if you would like but a touch far for us. Amazing food everywhere nearby.a block from the Red line train subway.only drawback is the $48 per day parking fee.not much choice.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Blake while on a business trip in Chicago. The location was perfect, there is a great Mediterranean restaurant in the hotel called Meli which I would highly recommend. The staff was superb. There was a problem with the plumbing in my bathroom at 11:00 pm on the first night and the staff moved me to a suite to make up for the inconvenience. This was a GREAT stay and I highly recommend!

Overall a great hotel with a fantastic staff, The rooms were spacious and incredibly clean, as was the entire hotel. I originally had a room on the 2nd floor which was pretty noisy. All I had to do was ask, and they cheerfully moved me up the 6th, which was much more quiet. I would definitely recommend and would stay there again.

Stayed over the Memorial Day Weekend and what a delight it was, from the moment the doorman welcomed us we felt right at home. An early arrival in town meant we were there well before check in but the hotel checked our bags so we could go out to brunch. On return we ventured to our room on the sixth floor and what a delight. The room was very large and in truth very large by Chicago Loop standards, the virtual floor to ceiling windows ( a good 12 ft ceiling at that ) gave the room a great light ... Read more

Hotel Blake located in Printer's Row in Chicago was absolutely beautiful, comfortable, well appointed, great location & has wonderful staff. We booked because of the price & had an amazing stay.

I come to Chicago every year, and have always chosen to stay at the Hotel Blake. It's very clean and well run. The staff invariably provides outstanding service, and this year a front desk staff member, Ray was particularly outstanding. He was always extremely responsive, and then went the extra mile to acquire a refund for a scheduling snafu that was at least in part, my fault. Thank you!

This is a beautiful hotel right in the middle of all the sites. Most places are within walking distance or just a short bus or taxi ride. The staff was friendly, helpful and very accommodating. The hotel was very nice, spacious and comfortable. Also, if you want GREAT concierge service ask for "Showtime" He is always willing to help with any request you may have and always, always, always has a huge smile and a delightful attitude. We will stay again on our next trip to Chicago.

This hotel is on Printer's Row. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. We were within walking distance of the "L" and bus stops. Eating establishments were very close. I took 6 teenagers to see the city and I was comfortable with the neighborhood and let them go in groups down to eat. The front desk staff is INCREDIBLE! I explained that we were not from the city and very unfamiliar with public transportation and they were very kind giving directions every time we left.

Very impressed with the room and front desk staff - very helpful and accommodating. The hotel is in a nice location and the room was spot on. My one issue is that the bellman (not the popular Showtime), made a point to say that our wives had promised him a tip (they did, but we knew that because they texted us and we did tip him). Asking for a tip just made for a awkward situation... not bad, just awkward. Overall, a really nice visit.

Excellent location, great place to stay. We loved this place. Our room was ready early which was a bonus. The room was big and had a decent view. Everything about this hotel was great.

Thanks so much, hotel Blake!

This hotel deserves a solid 'very good' score for its good location. On arrival, the valet and luggage off-loading is a little tricky due to the bike lane in front of the hotel -- not the hotel's fault, but I almost got run over by a Chicago cyclist. Check-in was a little arduous due to short-staffing at 7 p.m. for some reason that night, and an overworked clerk -- my wait was about 10-minutes with just one person in front of me.

The hotel is in a good location. Very close to the metro and highway. It is also three blocks from Michigan Ave and about 5 blocks from Buckingham Fountain. The room was very spacious. Not the best shower pressure, but always hot water. And ok A/C. My biggest problem was with their valet parking. It took me a very long time to actually get my car from the garage. One time, it took me 30 minutes from the point when I requested the car. The front desk attendant was not apologetic at all ab... Read more

My work group stayed here for two nights in early September. The desk staff was very pleasant and efficient. We had a strange encounter with the bellhop, Showtime, however. He took our bags and insisted that he bring them to our rooms. He was so insistent that we felt we had no choice (as a single female traveler I never have a bellhop deliver my bag). And, I felt pressured to provide a tip. I am sure he is a nice person but I felt a bit hustled. The room was spacious but very, very noisy... Read more

Whenever I'm in Chicago I always visit the Blake hotel where my friend is yhe doorman. He's very friendly and helpful with the guests. They called him 'Showtime".. real name is Greg. Don't get me wrong I've stayed at this place a few times. The location on Dearborn st is very close to buses and the loop. It's walking distance to Michigan ave.

Upon arriving we we're questioning how to pull up at the front of the hotel. Called front desk and was told they were sending someone out to help, which happen to be a man who called himself Showtime. I must say he shows his self to be very friendly. Now, when it comes to your baggage he rocks, I guess this is where you have no options­?Ą? but to let him do his job which he does very well. The staff was off the chain!

Everything about my recent stay at the great Hotel Blake was wonderful. From check-in with Delysa (forgive my spelling), who was ever-so-gracious to my final goodbye, I cannot say enough about the dedication of the staff, the beautiful facilities, exceptional in-room amenities and overall great energy of this hotel. I was sad to leave and will definitely return again the next time I'm in Chicago. Stay here!

The Hotel Blake is a nice option if you are planning a trip to Chicago either on business or pleasure. Located just 2 blocks west of Michigan Ave and 1 block south of Congress on South Dearborn. Easy access to buses and the "L". "Showtime" the doorman is a wealth of information on restaurants and things to do. We have already booked rooms for a family weekend next July.

I have stayed at Hotel Blake multiple times while in Chicago on business. The staff was great and very helpful in all of my stays, helping me with restaurants, car services, and general attractions. Loved the 'happy hour' in the lounge where you can mingle with other out of town business guests. Easy walking to dining, drinks, attractions, and theaters. Would stay here again without question.

This lovely boutique Hotel is easy to get to, a snap to unload or load with a well marked dedicated lane, and just a quick hike to Buckingham Fountain and the Lake Shore. From there it is a safe hike North to Navy Pier or South to the Museums, Shedd Aquarium and Adler Planitarium.

After an entire day of travel, I finally arrived at the hotel I had reserved. Frustrated to learn that they oversold and "walked" me to another hotel. Arrived at The Blake cranky and exhausted. Staff was extremely empathetic, helpful, and efficient. Sent me immediately to the restaurant because it was closing--where I was greeted by an equally great staff and delicious food.

On our way to WI, we spent 2 nights at The Blake to visit downtown area and see a Cubs game.

Upon arrival met Showtime. He was great in helping to tell me where to park, where to get the best pizza, a Chicago hot dog and Garrett's famous popcorn. Lent me his umbrella and helped me get a cab to rush back to a restaurant I left my umbrella. He is the best...great asset to the establishment. Room had a great view and a spacious room with a comfortable bed. The three day meetings were also held here and the staff was attentive to all of the needs.

The Hotel Blake is in a perfect location for sightseeing, I mostly walked everywhere, felt safe (being a solo female traveller) and it was about a 10 minute walk from the Art Institute.

I stayed for 4 nights, really lovely, clean room.

The view was non-existent (brick wall), and apparently the alternative was noisy. There was no minibar in room, but there was a coffee machine. No help getting a taxi; had to cross the street and hail one on my own. Not exciting, but fine.

Very comfortable rooms. If you have a hard time walking stairs, you'll want to be sure your room is on the same level as the elevator as some rooms require you to go up or down stairs. Great front desk service. The gym was perfect for what I needed with views of the outside. Attached resturant offered great food and wait staff. Only issue is they close at 10 pm so if you are out late eat early or have food delivered prior to your suite prior to closing.
