Very Good8.0
Great views of the Chicago skyline.
Great views. Great location. Zero sound proofing from the street so use the ear plugs provided by housekeeping if you want to sleep through traffic, fire trucks and garbage trucks. Amazingly it does go very quiet from around 04:30 until 06:00. I would stay here again simply for the location and views. You can sleep when you get home and there is convenient gym if sleep evades you.

Hotel Blake is always a good place to stay. Convenient to everything in the south loop, near all the train lines, always clean, and the staff is friendly. Beautiful building and decor. They provide ear plugs, but I have never needed them.
