Chicago's Best Shopping, Landmarks, Restaurants and More Sit Next to This Boutique, South Loop Hotel

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - April 20, 2010) - The moms in our lives put their selfless, nurturing natures to work every day by spending tons of time, energy and effort making sure we feel special. This Mother's Day, give the Mom in your life a much-deserved trip to the exciting big city of Chicago and Hotel Blake, a boutique hotel ideally located in the South Loop neighborhood.

With Hotel Blake's friendly, impeccable service, your Mom will be pampered the way she deserves and made to feel as if she's a VIP guest. As part of a special Mother's Day Package, you can customize your Mom's stay by choosing between a Just-for-Mom flower arrangement set up in her room pre-arrival; a $100 credit towards in-room spa services; or a three-course Mother's Day brunch at the critically acclaimed Custom House Tavern. Complimentary upgrades to a premium guest room, two vouchers for drinks at the Blake Bar as well as discounts on room rates and parking are also included. This package is valid for stays booked between May 6 and 13.

With an infinite number of possibilities to choose from, your Mom will be able to fill her big-city getaway with activities that fit her interests -- all of which are just a short distance from Hotel Blake and easily accessible on foot, by public transportation or cab. Here are some activities that Mom can enjoy:

  • Indulge in some shopping therapy by browsing among the shops in the South Loop, strolling through the stores along State Street and MagMile.
  • Go see the experimental and inventive artistic works of Henri Matisse on display for the first time in a groundbreaking exhibition at the nearby Art Institute of Chicago.
  • Tour Chicago's popular museums and attractions, such as the Field Museum, Adler Planetarium and The Shedd Aquarium.
  • Plan to see a fabulous show -- be it a drama, musical or comedy -- by checking out the offerings at the Chicago Theater, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Second City or other venues that appeal to your tastes.

Be sure to also experience the popular Custom House Tavern, located just off Hotel Blake's lobby. This dining establishment, which features delectable contemporary American cuisine from James Beard nominee, Executive Chef Aaron Deal, is housed in an elegant, comfortable but formal glass-walled space that reflects the vibrant Chicago architecture of the South Loop.

After a long day, Mom can retire to her luxurious, private oasis with warm, jewel-toned hues and richly finished woods along with 12-foot vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. Step into the separate, exquisitely decorated bathroom, featuring modern amenities like an oversized rain showerhead and luxurious bath products that bring the spa experience into the privacy of your room.
