First trip to Chicago. We liked the location which is walkable to many of the city restaurants and shops. We like to walk, and walk we did! We only took a cab once when it was raining. We were able to walk everywhere. Blake is located on Printers' Row in a historic building. The room was unexpectedly quite spacious for...

I just stayed at the hotel for a week in mid june and both the place and the staff were GREAT!!! Excellent location including the fact that the main building is a historic landmark. I was part of a group of 12 people and everyone felt the same way. I will definitely recommend and book Hotel Blake again.

Very nice hotel, extremely helpful staff. Facility and room were very clean, and rooms are very spacious. Food at the Restaurant/cafe was very good. A bit far from Magnificent Mile but still close to the famous and busy State Street, walk should not be that bad though during the summer time.

The hotel was beautiful. I arrived before check-in time, but thankfully was quickly accommodated. The staff in the evening time was what made this hotel memorable. The guest services representative was friendly and greeted me with a smile. The concierge greeted us, asked us where we were headed, and made a recommendation for dinner. The hotel was located close to...

We were in Chicago to celebrate 2 birthdays, Father's Day, and an engagement and had shopped for a convenient hotel in the loop or River North. There was a lot going on last weekend and everything was pretty pricey. I was monitoring prices and was almost ready to book a 5-star hotel we had stayed in previously when we found...

We stayed here for a week on business and the hotel did not disappoint. When we arrived it was a bit of a nightmare as the street was closed so the taxi dropped us off on another street and I had to drag 2 cases (one a huge case) and a bag across the road and through the bustling crowds....

Stayed here three years ago. This hotel is within walking distance to Lou Malnati's, which was the best Chicago pizza I've had.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
