Hotel was very well kept; rooms were spacious; location was great for business
Hard pillows, hard mattress, street and hallway noise
Great hotel, well updated. Nice bathrooms and beds. The restaurant downstairs was incredible. The best smoked salmon Benedict I've ever had! Will go back.
Easy parking at lot next door. Easy unload in front of hotel. Great staff at hotel helped with transportation and restaurant choices. Hotel had large rooms and big bathrooms with large modern showers. Hotel allowed us to check our bags and leave them at hotel after checkout on Sunday so we could sightsee all day and get car out of parking!
City noises all night but we were too tired from all our activities to be affected at night! No pool or hot tub but we knew that ahead of time. Overall best big city hotel experience we had!
The hotel was beautiful and in a perfect location - within minutes of everything there is to do in Chicago. The number one reason I will go back to Hotel Blake is the concierge, Showtime. This man knows everything there is to do and will go out of his way 100% of the time to help you out. We had an amazing time and can't wait to go back.
I can't think of a single thing.
Loved it all! Our new favorite place!
Walk in shower was nice, bathroom very spacious. Bed was comfortable. Nice location to restaurants and the river. Staff very helpful, especially Dan. Dan was awesome and helped us book another night so we could be in the city longer. Good price too.
A few shower tiles were dark, possible mold. It only had one door so water splashed everywhere. A palm-sized piece of the wall was missing and FYI if you don't want to hear street noise such as sirens and honking ask for a room away from the street, you won't get the best view but you'll be able to sleep without interruption.
Spacious,luxurious, close to a lot of great sites such as the museums and shopping and site-seeing places. Great to have breakfast included in the price of the room!
Not very helpful at first with the parking for the workers didn't know the streets well to give directions to the parking garage and were really trying to have valet parking as the only choice at twice the price at $44/day!
Very pleasant and helpful doorman.
The breakfast and the way it was served couldn't be worse.
The staff was friendly , I asked for an extra mattress for my child and they sent it immediately and at our arrival night it was rainy and the door man gave us umbrellas to use.The location of the hotel is good too.
1- The breakfast was poor and it was at the reception area (no room for breakfast), It shouldn't be called continental as they serve only donuts and croissant with canned juice and coffee. 2- the room has no fridge, 3- the coffee maker was in the bathroom.4- the internet was so slow. 4- parking costs $44 a night which is too much though all the 4-5 stars hotels I have been to around the world have their own free parking lots for hotel costumers.
Hotel's location within walking distance of everything. Spacious rooms and nice decor. Friendly staff. We'll come again!
