Stayed here in May '10 when this was still known as Hotel Blake. Was hoping this wouldn't become part of a big chain so that there prices would stay nice and manageable. Ohh well...
Being located only a few minutes from Michigan Ave and famous Buckingham Fountain, it is also located close to several different CTA stations, so getting around town is quite easy.
There are a couple of entrances into the hotel. One is shared with the entrance to Custom House, a restaurant on the corner of Congress Pkwy (they make their own ice cream!!). The main entrance is closer to the middle of the block. The lobby is off the main entrance and there is a nice long hallway leading to the lobby from the secondary entrance. Between both entrances is the business center with a couple of computers and nice comfy leather chairs. The folks at the reception were nice, courteous, and professional. The room was nice and large with a king size bed, a comfy lounge chair, TV console with flat screen TV, and a comfy bench at the end of the bed. The room not only looked plush and rich, but everything actually was. The room even came with bathrobe and house slippers. The bed was so comfy after a long day of walking around town, but the warm shower before that was even more so with a nice rainfall shower head.
All in all one of the most comfortable places I stayed in for a couple of days and for the price, there was no other place I would have preferred to stay.
