The staff is good here-actually really good, but the hotel misrepresents their offerings. Although they have a restaurant, the latest it stays open is 10pm-not 12:30am as is listed on their website. I found this out the hard way. I came back to my room from a day long conference, took a brief break, and 20 minutes later hopped onto... More

Wow ... let me just say I will be coming back to this hotel again very soon. The staff was amazing, very helpful on telling us how to get places or giving us great suggestions for food (also giving us good coupons). The door man "show time" made my trip!

Stayed at the Hotel Blake during our first time visit of Chicago. Overall it was a good experience. The hotel is located in a good spot.

This is one of those places that is really trying, I mean you really can see in their eyes; they really are trying to give you a great experience but there's a few fundamental things that are completely wrong about this place.

We stayed the night here after flying in from Australia and found it to be very good.

Our room was up-to-date and clean. The staff were very pleasant. We liked that the hotel was pet-friendly (for a fee), as we brought our dog. The Blake was conveniently located for a wedding that we were attending at the Harold Washington Library. However, the south-loop location is not terribly central. For a tourist visit I would recommend something closer... More

Whyndham Blake in Chicago is a smallish, comfortable place; almost a botique hotel. Courteous and efficient staff, and pleasant rooms. The restaurant, which was not particularly outstanding a year ago, is fresh, bright, and has new and enthusiastic staff and good menus. It boasts new decor, new attitude, and an optimistic outlook. I saw many non-hotel guest come from the... More

The staff was friendly and very helpful. This was our first trip to Chicago, and they helped make our visit warm and memorable. We loved the location, as well. Easy access to the trains helped since we didn't have a car. We would certainly choose Wyndham Blake again!

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.
