Could not access the "free wifi," even after 20 minutes on a tech call. Shower stall floor was level with rest of bathroom - lovely style but allowed water to flood the bathroom. Hazardous. Heating system sounded like it was going to fall out of the ceiling.

Great place to stay very clean and modern. Staff was excellent. Wished for an amenty like steam room or hot tub but in downtown Chicago I understand why they don't have these amenities. Location is very central for most things!!

First off, I want to say that I only stay at 4 or 5 star hotels (where available). I travel about 6 times per year, business & pleasure, where I stay in a hotel. I typically choose whatever is cheapest within that star rating, however, for my future trips to Chicago, I will seriously consider booking at the Wyndham Blake every time. I loved many things about this hotel but the best was it's cleanliness and at-home feel. The decor was updated, yet not pretentious and the staff was examplary. Upon our arrival, there was complimentary bottled water waiting for us in our room. Seriously! COMPLIMENTARY!!! That got me at hello. Oh, and did I mention free wi-fi? I had forgotten my toothpaste and upon leaving one day, I asked if they had any. They didn't have it at the front desk, but said that it would be waiting in my room upon my return back - AND IT WAS!! I have hardly ever had hotels remember this sort of stuff, so I was skeptical. However, they pleasantly surprised me. I have already started looking at other dates when I might return. It's nice to know that there is a place as comfortable and nice as this!

Staff was really wonderful. Location was great. Room service food was average. Only problem was there was no fridge in the rooms.

The room was spacious, however, it had not been dusted in some time. There also appeared to be some mold on the shower tiles and one of my trash cans had not been emptied when I checked in. The bedding and towels were nice. The 24 hour fitness center was clean and free. The space was nice; it had the usual equipment. Resterant was attached and coffee shop across the street. Most of the staff was friendly and helpful. The business center had only one computer and a very old screen, fine for checking in on line, but bring your own computer if you want anything else (free wi-fi).

Short stay for two nights to run the Chicago Marathon. Great location in that I was able to utilize the free marathon expo shuttle service to a nearby hotel that was very close. Considering my early arrival on Saturday I was able to check in early which was a huge convenience considering my short stay. The biggest plus was the location that was walking distance to the marathon start/finish and the CTA blue line stop back to the airport. Definitely will reconsider for next years marathon. The only shortfall was the lack of in room mini fridge .

The hotel is no better than I would expect for 1/5 the price in Podunk, however, I needed a room in the south Loop. You are paying for downtown room and not for the quality of the room. There was nothing wrong with the hotel, just that I would normally expect much more for the price.

I stayed in the Wyndham Blake when I was in town for Lollapalooza. It was a great location to grant park and could easily walk to the concert. The hotel was very nice and I have no complaints on the quality. The only thing that was a little disappointing was the continental breakfast which consisted solely of muffins and oranges. I didn't come for the breakfast but I've had better at much less quality hotels

Great Hotel and friendly, helpful staff. We were only there 2 days and very busy, but the hotel was a great place to end our day.

The staff was friendly and helpful. Easy walk to the Loop and train stop to get to Wrigley Field. Not very many restaurants within walking distance.

We had an awesome experience at the Wyndham Blake. The bellhops and front desk were extremely helpful, not only giving us quick and accurate directions to locations we wanted to visit, but also recommending surrounding attractions and suggesting the most scenic routes if we were walking (for example, walking through the park, then up along the lake to get to Navy Pier). The rooms were clean and comfortable.

We had two rooms, one king and one with 2 queen beds. The king room had a large bathroom with double sinks. Nice touch that I've not seen in most hotels. Each had a spacious shower, no tub. That was fine with us. The granite counter tops in the bathroom are installed at a height that is not short-person-friendly. At 5 feet nothing, I could barely reach the sink. It made the tall folks in the family happy, though. The services were minimalistic but adequate (i.e. no fridge, paper cups, tiny closet). Continental breakfast was included. The fitness center was nice, but it got crowded at 7:30AM. I would have given this hotel a higher rating if there hadn't been so much remodeling going on in the elevator lobbies (paper hanging, scaffolding, etc.) and door banging by other guests late, late into the night. They should put soft-close hinges on the doors.

I was attending a conference at Roosevelt University and surrounding sites and the hotel was the perfect spot. The rooms were clean and comfortable with an excellent fitness center. Many great lunch places nearby, Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts for evening coffee, and a very helpful staff to find whatever locations were needed. I would definitely go back.

It was an excellent experience. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. One of the nicest places we've ever stayed. Hope you have locations in Denver as that will be our next destination. The only small thing I would recommend is having a larger menu for the continental breakfast.

We were guaranteed a room with double beds if we paid a $25 upcharge at arrival. We confirmed this twice before going. But, when we got there, they were going to put us in a room with a king (doesn't work for two professionals traveling together). This was incredibly frustrating. They tried calling a ton of hotels in the area for us, though (all sold out due to a convention). They did have to put us in a room with a king and a trundle. But, the room was nice. And after 20 minutes of being in the room, the called to say a room with doubles was now available. They came up and moved us. The hotel rooms were very nice and the staff was very friendly despite the unfortunate start. I would recommend this hotel!

The hotel is well-located and the staff members I spoke with were uniformly friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was spare but of high quality, in a place where a full breakfast was also available. My only issue was that my room was on a low floor and facing Dearborn St. so it became loud very early in the morning. If I stayed there again, I'd ask for a different room.
