A visit with niece Liz and the cackle of chicken

... by the cackling of chicken which turns out to be a woman's laugh, and passing through industrial dereliction- piles of dead cars, car tyres and so on for the first 1/2 hr. And throughout the journey the continuous blasting of the train's horn as we approach small road crossings in the many little towns we pass. In this way so different from Oz where there are large or enormous distances between towns. Here one barely leaves one and the next appears. One is reminded ...

Only person I could see who looked at all in proportion to their seat was the tiny four year old girl across the aisle.  Our driver doesn't meet us at Lima airport so we taxi it here to our small but adequate B&B in Barranco.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Blake Chicago

    Not for everyone--and pretty soon not for anyone

    from

    FYI--was told by employees that hotel has been sold by Hyatt to a developer for condominium conversion and will be closing in 3-6 months.

    A decent place in the heart of Chicago

    from

    The Hyatt on Printer's Row was a decent hotel. I got the room for $55 plus tax on a Thursday night on Priceline for a total price of $69 (if you haven't used Priceline, they add tax AFTER you type in your selected price). The lobby of the hotel was nice, but the hallways in front of the rooms were dingy. The rooms themselves were nice but extremely small. In the bathroom there was an amusing little 4" black and white TV with an analog dial to receive the channels. There is a decent amount of street noise on the Dearborn Street side, but only very light sleepers will be affected by that.

    No amenities, great location

    from

    The Hyatt on Printer's Row can only boast its location. It is in the heart of Chicago's downtown, very close to the Art Institute and the Sears Tower. The rooms are very spacious but not too clean. The exercise room has a bike, a treadmill, and stair stepper from the 60's or 70's. If you prefer to go to a nearby gym you can do so for a "complimentary" $10 fee. Parking is an extra $20 and you have to leave the car in the garage or they charge you another $20. There are a few good restaurants as you leave the hotel on the right. Staff were friendly and helpful. No coffee machines in the rooms.

    Spacious Rooms, Good Location

    from

    I booked the Hyatt on Printer's Row for a convention in December and was glad to get a room for the price. WHen I checked in, the staff was very courteous and my room was much better than expected. The only drawback is that the carpeting was in need of replacement, but they were already starting to do so in some areas of the hotel, so one can only assume it was forthcoming.

    This hotel sits right near some of the L-Trains, and does face a major street (Dearborn), but the Pizza Place across the street is a definite must!

    Overall, great for the price, good overall - I would definitely stay there again.

    Not a bad hotel at all

    from

    I'm not sure what the people who wrote the bad reviews expected, but I thought this hotel was just fine - and better then fine, for the $50 per night from priceline. It's clean, comfortable, and the staff is very friendly and helpful (they made copies for us and had good recommendations for places to go and directions). It's a little worn around the edges - if a missing tile or scratch on the furniture really freaks you out, feel free to spend the extra $100 per night for another hotel. It's in a good location (especially for publisc transportation).

    Clean Comfortable Stay

    from

    I was in Chicago last week and spent one night at this Hyatt (reserved through priceline at a rate of $50/night), and it was just fine. I was a little reluctant about this priceline selection, since I had read some not-so-great reviews on this website about this Hyatt. However, I found the hotel was clean and comfy and I had no complaints whatsoever.

    The hotel and rooms are dated, but it suit my needs just fine. Jesse the bellman was most accommodating. Be sure to check out the pizza place across the street....yum!

    A Charming Place in the Heart of Chicago

    from

    The lobby was very charming and the rooms were confortable. Not overly opulent but I would stay there again in a heart beat.

    Don't touch that phone!

    from

    I stayed here for 5 nights in November and was tolerant of the noisy, street-side room because I got a good deal through Priceline ($60/night). I used the phone for less than 10 seconds each night -- just to call my partner and have her call me right back. When I checked out, I was shocked to find that I was charged about $10 for each long-distance call: equivalent to $1 per second! As might be expected, the staff was incredibly rude when I questioned these outrageous charges. They said that this was the "going rate" from AT&T. When I asked the manager to show me where it said in writing that this would be the rate for using the phone, he was unable to do so. The manager then literally turned his back on me and walked away. In my opinion, Hyatt on Printers Row is only interested in short-term profit, even if it means extorting customers who are often too rushed to protest. Their policies and customer service leave much to be desired, and I would never patronize this hotel again.

    Only if you're desperate

    from

    We travel to Chicago for weekend trips 15-20 per year and stay at many hotels in town. The Hyatt Printer's Row has been, by far,our most disappointing experience to date. In a city rife with hotel choices ranging from charming to opulent, this place was, frankly, a dump. The room design and layout was bad, the windows on the street side look directly into an apartment building...intimately...thrilling in a sort of "Rear Window" kind of way, but not conducive to privacy. The street noise was noticeable ALL night long (windows closed). The carpetting throughout the hotel was threadbare and ratty, and the bed linens felt very cheap and very polyester. Service from the front desk staff was minimal. Didn't Hyatt used to represent quality? This place even had an overall bad odor pervading the hallways and the rooms. With so many truly great choices in Chicago, we can only say, "let the buyer beware." We would never stay here again .

    Comfy, Quiet and Convenient

    from

    Just returned from a weekend in Chicago, staying at the Hyatt on Printer's Row. If you're looking for something glitzy & glamorous, this hotel is not for you. But, if you think you would enjoy a charming hotel, historic setting, quiet rooms, and a great location, then this hotel offers it all. Not quite in "the loop", but within a few blocks of it, and a leisurely stroll away from Grant Park. Close to transportation. Very helpful and friendly staff, (getting an extra bed was no problem) intimate lobby, great hotel restaurant with excellent food (on the expensive side) or, check out the great pizza joint across the street and enjoy one of the thickest pizza's you've ever encountered out on the sidewalk seating, drinking in the pleasant, historic, printer's row ambiance. Caution, not the best place to have a car. Will have to use a private parking garage space at $18.00 per day for self park. P.S. - scored two rooms at $99.00 per night each!! Can't beat it! Overall, a throroughly enjoyable experience!!
