    Business centre was good for booking activities. Really handy to a few good restaurants down printers row, also handy to a couple of metro stations which we really appreciated given our jet-lag. Very nice gym which I had to myself

    Bed was comfortable.

    The bathroom door needed to be replaced, the bathroom ceiling had mold on it, there was a room service tray sittiing outside the room next to us our entire stay. All in all, just not kept up well.

    The building is beautiful; its location ideal! The staff was fantastic - accommodating of our special request, and friendly and helpful as well. Breakfast was delicious - generous portions. Room was clean and nicely appointed. We've stayed in other downtown hotels, but Hotel Blake is our favorite by a long shot!

    Nothing - this was our second visit to this hotel and we will return again and again.

    The location was excellent and the doorman was friendly!

    The confusion with the valet didn't like that I had to pay every time I left the parking garage!

    1. Convenience: My bank (Chase) and a Starbucks are within just feet of this beautiful hotel. Great food, dinning and access to all of downtown and the North Shore are only minutes away. 2. Beautiful Decor: Rooms are nice and modern, beautifully decorated with nice high ceilings with plenty of space. Beautiful sitting areas as well. 3. Doorman number 1: There was a doorman who was in every sense of the word a superb host. This gentlemen would greet each and every guest with genuine enthusiasm while remaining professional and yet reserved. While he was very approachable to begin with he'd ask if there was anything that was needed such as a taxi, directions or where to grab a bite. This person Hotel Blake's best asset.

    1. Room Location :( Faced an alleyway and a brick building. Not good being that the other side of this hotel has some of the best views in Chicago. 2. Noise .... Street level noise from vagrants in alley late night. 3. Staff (front desk in particular) was accommodating but not friendly. Doorman number 2 who was not as nice nor as polished as Doorman number 1. Many businesses can create a beautiful hotel .... but it's people who makes these places memorable.

    The staff were excellent from the porter, the front desk check in was very easy and the housekeeping staff greeting us in the morning as we walked out and engaged us to see if we had any special request and if our stay was going well.

    Our showers in both rooms had a lot of black mildew in them which for the price of the room I was very disappointed to find!! The front reception area had a thick coat of dust on the dark moldings so it was very evident, especially behind the desk when we checked in, not a good first impression of detailed cleanliness. Carpets greatly needed to be cleaned in halls and rooms.

    We were at the Blake for one night as we changed trains. It is a short cab ride from Union Station. We were warmly welcomed, had a large, comfortable room, and appreciated their complimentary luggage storage on our departure day. We'd definitely stay again.

    The only missing amenity was an in room refrigerator.

    What's not to like? The hotel is historical, located in downtown, good amenities, friendly staff. Loved it there. We came to Chicago to explore the city and everything was walking distance away. The hotel staff also gave us a really good map that helped us decide our itinerary of all the places to see.

    Liked getting our room moved, upgraded with a view, after there was a problem with our original room.

    The first room were in had wet carpeting, and found out later that room shouldn't have been put in service.

    location, friendliness and helpfulness of staff

    when i reserved, I had put in a special request to have a bottle of champagne and flowers in our room at check-in since it was our anniversary. That did not happen--and I did not bring it up because everything else was great without it!
