We booked a night here because our usual loop hotel, the Kimpton Allegro, had nothing available. In terms of luxury, the Blake is pretty much in the same class as the Allegro, but with somewhat larger rooms and a lot more storage space for clothes, boasting a decent-sized closet and lots of drawers. The bathroom was good sized with a...

Reviewed 3 February 2017

Hotel Blake is a wonderful small boutique hotel in the Loop. Rooms are large and spotlessly clean. The staff are excellent and very responsive to guest needs. The valet, Showtime is a wonderful source of knowledge. There are several restaurants nearby for dinner. Meli Cafe is in the same building as the hotel and serves fantastic breakfasts. Sofi Restaurant is...

I was just here on the weekend. May 19-22, 2017. We were greeted by the friendly staff at the desk. They were having issues with their computer system and admitted this to us right away, truth from the staff always makes me respect them more. They took our luggage and stored it until they could assign us our rooms. They...

I have stayed many times at this very-well located boutique hotel. Staff are always friendly and attentive. Some staff have been here for years. Nice coffee shop/restaurant with excellent treats. My room, however, was dark and kind of beat, sorry to say. My view was of a brick wall of the ATT warehouse behind the hotel, and the three lamps...

Stayed at Hotel Blake for a recent seminar. Hotel was clean, comfortable, and located conveniently close to Grant Park and the subway. Hotel Staff was very polite and accommodating. The rooms were a little small, but adequate and well kept. Would stay here again and recommend to others.

The Hotel Blake was clean, comfortable, and its location is great. We walked to the theater and local attractions such as Millenium Park, Navy Pier, and Shedd Aquarium. Although we didn't use public transportation, there are stops nearby. The staff was very welcoming, and they were enthusiastic about helping us with restaurant selection, directions, etc. The onsite restaurant is excellent....

This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours.
