              Very friendly staff at the Wyndham Blake Chicago. Also, major props to the Door Men they do an excellent job especially, Ron and Greg do an amazing job. As soon as my brother and I pulled up in the taxi we were greeted by Greg and he was a tremendous help and made our staff exceptionally wonderful. The rooms were very clean and spacious with some very great updated carpets, bathrooms, televisions, beds, and more.

              We thought the staff in the bar/restaurant was superb. They remembered us each night and started with the drink they had learned we liked. They introduced us to new drinks and wines and were most helpful. We wish to acknowlege Denise, Debbie and Annie. We could not have felt more at home with them. The one meal we ate there was delicious. The bellhops were also helpful in directing us around the neighborhood to places which we could afford for dinner. We did not get a bum steer at all. Getting in and out of the hotel was a breeze. We would definitely come back to you due to customer service, price, and location, as well as ease of access to the city.

              The only real concern we had was with the design of the shower. Although it looked good, the shower door was not long enough to keep water in the shower and off the floor.

              I thought the location was terrific. Service was good - I will stay at the Wyndham Blake again.

              I can't believe I'm even writing this but the air conditioning was so good it made our room actually chilly.

              Their pics on the website do not match what you find, I was put in a handicap room, if you take a shower you cannot dry your hair( unless you what to be dead) then you walk in and find a friendly note that room service is shut down for the holiday weekend...should have been told that one!!!! Its located in a spot where you cant walk around after dark. No in room movies. Just bad tv stations.When you go get ice you go to the 12th floor which is dirty, smells and no one around. All this I was told by your website I would pay $398. , I left there and had to pay them $550.00 for a nightmare. I travel alot and have seen a lot of hotels. Never one like this

              The staff was great. There was an error when we first checked in, we were given a room with a king size bed...we needed 2 queen because we had our children with us. They immediately took care of it. Every time we left or come back, they always greated us. It was a convenient location to downtown, just a couple of blocks from Michagan Avenue. The beds were the best!!

              We only ate breakfast once, it was coffee, a muffin and a piece of fruit. Our kids didn't even get anything to drink. We went out for breakfast the rest of the time we were there. No refridgerator in the room, good thing we brought a cooler. Our view was of a brick wall...we didn't spend a lot of time in the room so it was ok.

              Excellent location and great breakfasts.

              Although great location I felt the facilities were limited for this class of hotel. Limited room service times and menu choices. No mini bar and no pay per view films.

              Shower was bad - not really an included breakfast - no fridge no minibar in the room - extremely slow internet connection during the whole stay !!!

              Great location, very comfortable room at a fair price. Self park was quite affordable and convenient to hotel for downtown Chicago. Very friendly staff. We would definitely stay here again.

              A few things missing from room one would normally expect in a hotel this class and price - access to a real wine bucket, real glasses in the room (rather than plastic cups). Three light bulbs were burned out in the bathroom when we arrived, but were quickly replaced the next day.

              Good location & comfortable room.

              Split level floors makes it difficult with luggage. Bar area small and only open 5-9pm.

              The location was the best thing

              The continental shouldn't really be advertised as a free continental. It is more a free coffee and apple.

              The best of the hotel is their beds and bedding. The mattresses were very comfortable and the down bedding and pillows made for a good night's sleep. The hotel's location is very good -five to ten minutes walking distance to Grant's Park, Millennium Park and Chicago's Art Institute.

              The room was comfortably large but there was no armchair and the windows gave on to a brick wall in an alley. There is no fridge in the room.The Continental breakfast consisted of two kinds of muffins (if you got there early enough, if not one kind of muffins) and fruit (once again if you were early enough!). In all, not a great breakfast! There is a restaurant in the hotel but after the breakfast they serve. We did not want to try it. The location is fine but there are no restaurants around at night. The only pizza place closes at nine so you have to walk a good fifteen minutes to find a restaurant open until 10:00 pm. Chicago seems to shut down early!
