Bluegreen Vacations Hotel Blake, Ascend Resort Collection Reviews Summary

UserAndrew
9/10
 
Wonderful
Great hotel, huge rooms in...

Pros: We were on a cross country trip. This was one of the best, if not the best hotel we stayed in. The room was huge and nicely furnished and reasonably priced. Very good for a hotel in central location - 10 minute walk to shops, with excellent nearby travel links. We arrived by Amtrak from New York and hotel was a short 10 minute inexpensive taxi ride from Union Station. Staff were very friendly and helpful. A major plus, our room was serviced every day. So many hotels post covid either do not offer daily room service (despite increased prices) or make you ask for it. No problem at the Blake. Would definitely stay here again.
Cons: Nothing. All good and would choose to stay at this hotel again if in Chicago.

It's like coming home in...

Pros: Excellent location! Easy walk to restaurants and attractions. Michael was the bellman when we got there. We walked in and he came across the lobby and said "We've been expecting you." "Welcome." I went to the front desk and asked if my package had arrived (I ordered chocolates for my wife for Valentines). The staff said "Yes, we were just talking about you." They made me feel like I had been there many times in the past... this was the only time I have booked this hotel. But it won't be the last!
Cons: A minor issue, there is a plate over the mirror that has the electrical hook up for a light fixture. The bathroom could use that extra light for shaving at night. The little lighted vanity mirror didn't light up.

The Perfect Choice for Your...

Pros: Great location (we really enjoyed learning about the history of Printer’s Row), very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and clean and comfortable rooms and amenities! Right near the blue line with a direct link to O’Hare. An excellent choice all around. We can’t wait for our next stay!
Cons: Honestly, nothing to fault here.
