Cheap but otherwise not great

Reviewed 16 november, 2021

For the price, I guess this place is fine. But my experience wasn't nearly as positive as other reviewers. There was warm water but no hot water in the shower. The refrigerator in my room didn't work. There was no "do not disturb" sign for the door that I could find. At checkout, I asked for an emailed receipt and it was never sent. I could have followed up or argued about each of these things, but I was working long hours and just wanted to rest at the hotel. Overall, I would stay elsewhere next time unless I'm on a strict budget.

Perfect Vacation Week at Hotel Blake!

Had contact with Hotel Blake since 2019 via countless phone calls; initial reservation was canceled due to COVID but lucky to reschedule in 2021. ALL staff (24-hour Front Desk, housekeeping, doorpersons, et al) were OUTSTANDING! Hotel and rooms were perfectly immaculate/clean, roomy, and so comfortable.

We were staying at the Blake for 4 days on a little getaway to Chicago. Our first room (room 611) was beautiful, comfortable, clean and quiet but the window was small and faced a building so the next morning we asked if we could switch rooms. Elydaisy was working at the front desk and hooked us up!! She put us in room 524 and it was stunning!! A corner room with views down to the lake, the Sears tower and the beautiful artwork on top of the library. We giddily opened the curtains every morning to take in the breathtaking views. Elydaisy made our trip so much better!!

The Hotel Blake was just lovely, with a friendly staff. 3 historic buildings in Printer's Row were combined for this hotel. It was totally renovated in 2020, so everything was fresh. Being old buildings there were high ceilings and big windows. Furnishings were contemporary and very efficient and comfortable. There was mini fridge and microwave in cabinet in room. Desk with chair and second chair in room. Bathroom well done with large stall shower, large sink with counter area and shelf below for your toiletries. Convenient location, 15 minute walk to Art Institute. The hotel has an area map which is well done. In the hotel is Cafe Meli, lots of choices for breakfast. A tip for travelers who do PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: The Blue Line from O'Hare takes you downtown in about 50 minutes. Get off at Jackson (which has elevator) and walk 3 blocks south on Dearborn to hotel. Safe and inexpensive. At the airport at Arrivals is the Transportation Authority's "Downtown Map". Shows train and bus routes, very helpful. Have a great time in Chicago - wonderful city.

Overall the Property was Beautiful and Well Kept. The Rooms are Spacious and Clean. The Downtown Location is Great within walking distance to Restaurants, Museums, Tour Buses etc. The only complaint I have as BG Owners is the property did not have any Laundry services. We travel quite a lot and for future, availabl of Laundry services (Self Serve) is preferred w
