          Friendly staff, clean rooms, well furnished

          We stayed at the Hotel Blake with three families - a set of grandparents and two families with children ranging in age from 15 down to 2. Everyone had a great time. The friendly people at the desk really seemed to care that we had a good time and were very helpful in getting us to places and making sure we had all the information we needed.

          newly renovated, convenient location to public transportation, great service

          Stayed in a king room, which is larger than typical. Hotel is newly renovated. Feels brand new. Free Wifi in room. Great service as I ask for plates, silverware and wine opener on separate calls to front desk. Room service responded promptly. Bathroom only has a shower, which is what I like since I don't use tab anyways. Will stay again in Chicago.

          Very satisfied with both facilities and service”

          Comfortable, clean, very friendly staff, close to places I wanted to go in CBD, reasonable price

          The hotel is 10 minutes walk from S. Michigan Ave so is very handy for a good range of tourist and business venues. It is reasonably priced compared to many others in the area, but clean, comfortable and I had a spacious room. A little wear and tear showing in the bathroom, but it was kept very clean. Breakfasts in the restaurant seemed to be a bit pricey and the menu didn't suit me (high calorie!) but there are plenty of places (including two within the same block of Dearborn) where you can buy breakfasts or other meals. The hotel doesn't offer a deal including breakfasts. I booked a deal including breakfast through Agoda, to be told when I got there that this was no longer available, but the reduced price the hotel offered left me more than happy.

          location, staff

          Situated right downtown an easy cab ride will get you to McCormick for under $10. Many great eats around. Its Chicago! Check out Miller's pub just around the block on Adams and Wabash. the staff are helpful and friendly. Not sure about the restuarant at the hotel. I had to hit up some of my favs while in town. Potbelly's right next door has a great breakfast during the week!

          Location, restaurant

          We loved our quiet room, which was cooled down to 68 degrees for our arrival on the hot (90 degrees) day we checked in. We also appreciate the great restaurant, The Custom House Tavern, which is adjoining the hotel. We always have great meals and excellent service there! PS The Custom House Burger is a favorite for lunch.

          Lovely Hotel and Service with a Smile!”

          Large rooms,friendly service and excellent location!

          The hotel had a homey atmosphere, not like the larger hotels with impersonal service. The corner room we had was large and very comfortable. The staff was friendly, efficient and accommodating. The location was perfect for our purposes.

          Nice comfortable rooms”

          location, comfort, staff.

          Reception staff was nice enough to upgrade our room at no extra charge. We were surprised to see a large room with comfortable beds and full-size windows. Bathrooms were clean and extra-large. Free wi-fi was provided. Only catch was parking was not free. Expect to pay $28/day (self) or $48/day (valet).

          Quiet, clean and friendly staff

          The hotel has many stairs. It was hard to move the luggages. The location is a bit far from Main Street and downtown.

          We were relocated to another room due to an awful smell. Disappointed that there wasn't a refrigerator or microwave. Front desk were efficient but not engaging.

          Very good”

          Pros: *Very spacious *Nice decor. More modern than the pictures show. *Comfy bed and pillows *Clean *You can leave your bags while you wait to check-in. *Doorman gets the door for you Neutral: *The room was too cold sometimes. *We got a terrible view of the building next door and the alley Cons: *The biggest con of all: I COULD NOT GET THE WIFI TO WORK ON MY LAPTOP! This is very disappointing because I needed to study for a midterm I had to take as soon as I returned home. I couldn't study at all and failed my midterm... This is the biggest reason why I cannot recommend this hotel. *The vending machine was pathetic. It was just drinks and no food. *The front desk staff is practically nonexistent at night.
