Great old hotel that needs some updating.

Posted Nov 23, 2014
The hotel is a great location but is very tired. Needs love. The hotel staff were ok. They actually seemed under staffed for how busy they were.

A Great Hotel

Posted Nov 22, 2014
Pros: Decorations, hotel staff
We had a wonderful time at the Drake. The check-in process was easy and we were able to check-in early without question. The hotel was decorated beautifully for Christmas and the overall appearance was wonderful. It is a quick walk to all the shopping on the Magnificent Mile and lots of great restaurants. Our room itself was also well decorated and had a wonderful view of the lake. I would definitely recommend the Drake and would certainly stay there again if I visit Chicago!

Excellent accommodations! The only downside was the overpriced Cape Cod restaurant.

Ralph's party

Posted Oct 29, 2014
Pros: location. lobby. staff
Cons: maintenance
Location: it's on Chicago' s magnificent mile.
checked in late on Friday - nice music in the lounge, nice nightcap. Lovely lobby and lounge area. Room was nice but only one suitcase rack and no selves so my suitcase had to go on the floor. Bed was comfortable. Shower/bathroom clean, functioned well. Nothing special, but fine. Saturday was the big party - didn't get back until after midnight and I was beat! Too tired for a nightcap - just wanted to fall into bed. But my room key didn't work. Went back downstairs, got another key, that didn't work. Hotel security came to the room and let me in. The staff responded quickly but, still, it was an inconvenience. The next day we had to coordinate our breakfast with when they were going to fix the door. I hate when things don't work in a hotel.
