We had a great weekend in Chicago and stayed at the Wyndham Blake Hotel. Our room was very clean and the bed really comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful with suggestions on places to visit and eat. Michigan Ave. is a couple of blocks away as are several of the museums and Millennium Park. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will stay there again.

My sister and five friends just spent five glorious days at the Wyndham Blake. We were treated like queens, and the hotel is quite exceptional. Customer service is the name of the game here; everyone is as nice as pie and makes you feel as though you're the only guest and they exist for you happiness. Everyone was smiling and charming and happy. So often front desk staff act as though the stresses of the world are upon them- not so here!
This hotel is a touch far from the center of most Chicago action, but not bad, and the restaurant is so-so, but as a hotel, it rocks. My room was lovely and comfortable. Good pillows great bed free internet bless their souls. Management and bell staff felt like family.

Room Tip: I had a corner room (upgrade, but worth it, very very cool) but when it's on a lower floor the t...

We stayed here for a two night get-away in Chicago before heading to a wedding in Wisconsin. The room was clean the staff was friendly the bed was comfortable. The location was walkable to most of the things we wanted to try to fit in within two days. The whole thing was "all right". Can't really figure it out but something was missing? If you want a place that makes you feel special you might want to look for some place else in Chicago's downtown -- I know I will.

Very nice hotel. The hotel was fully booked, however we would have thougth we were the only ones there bc we didn't hear a peep of noise from anyone, and my husband and I slept like babies. The staff is friendly and accomodating, and the doorman Greg (Showtime) was very helpful. He gave us coupons to attractions, asked where we were going and suggested restaurants, provided economical town cars, and one night walked us to a jazz club after his shift was over bc he didnt want us to get lost. I can't remember the last time I was treated so well. The hotel was close to everything, and we walked to shopping, museums, Sears tower, etc.

This hotel was a great value in an excellent location. Walkable to everything. Rooms were nice, beds comfortable, staff really friendly. The only thing I would say could really improve is the water pressure in the shower. Other than that, loved it! But the bathroom was spacious and very clean. I will be back.

Room Tip: I read some complaints about noise ... well, you're in a large city ... noise is bound to happen...

We've stayed at the Blake for years during business trips to Chicago. Since the Wyndham takeover, it's lost a step (or more).

The South Loop location is still great and the downstairs restaurant has been the best in the neighborhood for years. The doorman recognizes me every time. However, little things just aren't the same.

Only one bedside lamp (for a king bed) and inability to provide another. The shampoo quality has fallen. In-room coffee isn't up to par. Just little things, perhaps, but the "boutique hotel" is gone. It's a Wyndham.
