The Blake is a pretty cool spot; the only down-side is its not real close to anything.
I would recommend maybe staying at the Hilton Garden Inn, much closer to walk to everything.
Westin is good for walking places as well and they recently gave their bar a face lift
The Westin Hotel's Ember Grille is pricey, but the food is delicious. A great place to stop for evening dinner or drinks. Also, they have the softest pillows and bedding I've ever slept on, in any hotel.
