Verified Reviews of Hotel Blake

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Excellent Rooms and Service!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Our experience as a group of 34 people at Hotel Blake was wonderful. The concierge service was excellent and everything from the atmosphere to the comfort of the beds was amazing. We didn't have a great view, but we were not in our rooms long enough to worry about it. The do not have any parking however, so that was an added (Chicago level) expense, but that is typical in Chicago. Overall, a lovely experience and one we will definitely repeat! It is also so nice to stay in a hotel that supplies name brand shampoo and conditioner. Yummy smelling Bath and Body Works!

"Great Location, Beautiful Rooms."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The Hotel Blake was located in the heart of Chicago. Very close to plenty of places to eat, 15 min cab ride to McCormick Place, and a very accommodating staff. The rooms were very clean and the shower was phenomenal!
