Windy City stay
It was a pleasure to have a plush room with lakeside view. Only complaint would be the bath towels were a little stiff perhaps from bleach!

A great place for afternoon tea
The hotel is very unique in its design and layout, afternoon tea has incredibly well done, but you can tell the hotel needs some minor touch up here and there (chipped paint on ceilings and minor cracks in architectural walls).

Pleasant Stay
Our stay was very pleasant. The staff was helpful and courteous. I think the menu at the Palm Court could have had more selections, but we ate was good.

Fair 4.0
Not good rest
The Drake is a wonderful old world type hotel. Room is fine but sadly it was noisy and we did not sleep well. Doors were being slammed & kept us awake. We couldn’t determine exactly from where so useless to call management.

Exceptional 10.0
Couple's night in the city
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Drake for a couple's night out in the city. It was more quiet than a hotel on Michigan Ave, yet close to all major sites via walking or taxi/Uber. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas too.

Good 6.0
Nice enough hotel but could use a little work
I’ve always wanted to stay here. I was disappointed but the condition of the hotel. Lots of marked up walls and doors and peeling wallpaper on the guest floors. Or maybe it was just the 6th floor. Same tray of dirty dishes sat across the hall from us for at least 8 hours
