Classic hotel experience with a staff that takes care of you from the front desk, and bellhop, to those who parked my car. The shops, dining, and speakeasy provide guests with plenty of entertainment options on the building grounds. The drawbacks, was no room service, no recycling, and the top floor was uncomfortably hot. The rooms themselves were spacious, comfy bed, but a tiny fridge.

We love a November visit to the Drake, with beautiful decorations for the holidays and old-world charm. The family suites have lots of room plus 2 bathrooms which is a big plus! Breakfast downstairs at Cafe on Oak was delicious, with the best service possible. Thank you!

Beautiful architecture, the bathroom was dingy, the toiletries were subpar and in single use plastic. No water/wine glassware available in room or from front desk. Not a 4 star experience but it was OK.

Very classy but old-style hotel. The vintage style is really strong but it makes the vibe unique (harp player during dinner...) Was a great experience overall! The room was very clean, as well as the bathroom. Staff is very professional
