During the weekend of November 22-26 my husband and I stayed at this hotel. I have to say the hotel itself was beautiful. Very clean and welcoming. We were shown to our room and it was beautiful. Large and very comfortable. Everything was immaculate. We were with friends and their room was just a beautiful. However, I must say it...

Just returned from a trip to Chicago for a football game. We chose Wyndham Blake because it was close to Solider Fields(2km walk). I was pleasantly surprised at what a lovely hotel it was. Large rooms, comfortable beds and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The doorman "Showtime" was great. Super friendly and always making you laugh. Mark...

Good points... Spacious room, friendly staff, good range of tv channels, large bathroom. Blue line to airport was 1 minute walk away... Only $5 to and $2.50 away from city center, 45 minute trip, excellent. Lots of taxis outside to downtown. Bad points... No restaurant, no breakfast (although the Potbelly restaurant next door was fantastic, it was closed on Saturday),...

I just spent 3 nights at the Blake on a business trip. I selected the hotel because it was close to the company I was visiting. However the location just south of the Loop is average for tourists, a good 20' walk from the River at a steady pace. The rate for the first night was extremely high, about twice...

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.
