I stayed at the Hotel Blake on a recent trip with my friends. We loved the rooms and found the entire hotel very comfortable. The rooms are spacious for an urban location. We had two rooms; one with 2 queens and one with a king and sofa. We loved the sofa! Gave us a nice spot to relax and hang...

We loved Hotel Blake. We are Bluegreen members and this was a great weekend away. The hotel staff were super friendly and helpful. They recommended shows, shopping and other great ideas. The restaurant is also great for breakfast or dinner.

Blake is a quaint, unassuming but very efficient pocket hotel right on Chicago's Printers' Row. Convenient to all kinds of surface transportation and downtown sights. Well maintained, but definitely a vertical architecture. If you have mobility constraints, this hotel might be a bit tough to get around in, but otherwise, an excellent spot.

My husband and I decided to vacation in our city, Chicago, for a couple of days. We chose Hotel Blake for its proximity to the downtown area. You can walk there! We also like the room decor. The doorman/bellhop/concierge is the life of the party and makes you feel welcome! His name was Showtime and that he is. He also...

I stayed here for work recently and it was a great choice. We were able to walk to a great restaurant. They had valet parking and a bar/restaurant attached. The rooms were clean and had plenty of room. The rates were reasonable for downtown Chicago.

The hotel staff was exceptionally professional and personable from Tom at the front desk to the valets, Michael and "Showtime" to the cleaning staff. Downtown sights are within walking distance. The rooms are spacious and well appointed.

One bedroom with a view of the city. Great location. We used our Bluegreen membership points. Restaurants near by. Always have three staff members at your service. Bell man is extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Parking is expensive. Food at onsite restaurant is excellent. Staff was polite and professional.

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.
