“Would be my first choice”
My stay at the Drake was excellent. The Hotel staff were all friendly and eagar to help in any way they could. I had a great expierence from check-in to check-out. The hotel was beautiful. I will definitely be staying at the Drake again.
“An elegant blast from the past”
This is truly a fabulous hotel. It has the look and feel of a first class hotel built on the Gold Coast in the 1920's, with the service to match. The hotel is situated right on Michigan Avenue in between the lake and the John Hancock building. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to stay at The Drake for such a great price. The Drake Brothers restaurant was a little pricey, but vey good. There is a huge number of fine restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel.
“very happy with the room and service”
Me and my wike had a great time in the hotel, the room was huge compared to other hotels i have gone to in the past.
“Best in the city!!!”
“Helped make the night unforgettable!”
My girlfriend and I decided to get away for a night on the town, and the Drake Hotel was a wonderful experience. Visually the hotel is rather stunning to behold - the high ceilings, the intricate patterns in the carpets, the chandeliers, and the sculptures and fountain . . . it was very nice. We didn't eat there, but the in-house restaurants and bars looked good too. The doormen were polite, as were the check-in clerks. Our lady was very quick, which was good since we had a decent amount of bags. The elevators are nice, with a vintage position indicator on the lobby wall and couches in some of the cars. King sized bed - yup, very comfortable. The ottomans and chairs were sweet too. The sheets and pillows were soft and very warm. The internet in the room worked great - we Skyped with some of my distant family members and the audio/video never got slow over almost half an hour. Naturally the minibar items were quite expensive, but the gift shop downstairs had the same stuff for only a slight markup over 7-Eleven price. The TV was not used. Waking up in the room was also amazing, with the city right outside and a lot of activity. As for the downers, the cable to our internet was broken. I told the desk and they handed me a new one, expecting me to install it. I didn't bother, and managed to get the broken cable to work. Also, the bathroom was great (nice shower) but the door didn't close tightly, and so would drift open at the slightest breeze, locked or not.
“Old School Charm”
The Drake is a blast into the past. More character and elegance. Great service. Nicely kept, but could stand a little upgrading in the room decor. Great location. I would stay there again.
“Great Chicago Hotel”
The Drake is a classic and the experience reflected it. Excellent location, great service, and the food at the restaurants was outstanding. It is expensive but as we all know, we get what we pay for.
Stayed in a lakeview room that had a great view. The room was quiet and very comfortable, the staff friendly and efficient, and tea in the Palm Court a nice treat. The only negative was the breakfast in the executive lounge was so-so and the extra cost for wine/alcoholic beverages in the evening in the executive lounge was pricey for what you get. Otherwise a great place to stay and will definitely return.
