Located near Yale University, The Blake Hotel lives up to its Ivy League neighbor. The venue brings high-end hospitality and Michelin-star dining to downtown New Haven. The 108-rooms are made for extended visits with spacious closets and kitchenettes. Their stylish mix of rich velvets fabrics and mahogany furniture create a contemporary refuge worthy of their moniker — Yale Law School's first female graduate Alice Blake. The in-house restaurant Hamilton Park is worth a visit of its own. Helmed by Michelin-starred chef Matt Lambert, the kitchen serves up American fare that includes a 60-day dry aged ribeye. The property also hosts a coffee bar offering homemade baked goods and La Colombe coffee while a rooftop bar will be added to the mix this spring.
