We enjoyed our stay, Queen West is a great part of the city and the Drake is centrally located in the neighbourhood with everything in walking distance. The room was quite small - smaller than we expected. It worked just fine for us, but I wouldn't recommend if it's your first time going away and staying in a hotel with a new partner. Very close quarters! Loved the toiletries, the room was clean. We were late inquiring about securing an onsite parking spot, but the public parking available was just down the street for the same type of rate. Nice also to have the street level patio to dine or the Sky Yard. We had dinner at the latter, the food was great and because we were guests, we received complimentary glasses of bubbly which was a nice touch.

Beautiful homey vibe couldn't try roof top bar as it was closed. Live music wasn't on at the time. Vegan options would be advantageous.
