Great Weekend!

Would recommend Tue, Sep 2, 2014
My boyfriend took me to this hotel for a celebration, and we had a fantastic time! Our lakeside room was gorgeous! The whole hotel is beautiful. The front desk employees, and most of the staff were very gracious and helpful. All of the food and drinks we had in the building were well made and delicious. The manager was very friendly and helpful, and determined to make our stay as comfortable as possible. There were a couple of small things that we weren't satisfied with. We talked to the concierges several times, and felt they could have done more to help us. The bathroom was also not as updated as you would expect from a hotel of this caliber, but it is an old hotel, so that's just what it is. Overall, we had a great time, and will be back.

Room was not great

Would recommend Mon, Aug 25, 2014
The room was large but the sofa bed was broken and didn't have any sheets. We had to ask for sheets twice.

The Drake

Would not recommend Mon, Aug 18, 2014
We were so looking forward to our stay. The lobby and Palm Court et. al do not disappoint. We splurged on a junior suite with a lake view. The room seemed nice - then we discovered a swarm of bugs on the ceiling molding. Ugh. They quickly gave us the same room - a floor below - which was bug free - HOWEVER - it was not well-cleaned. We asked them to clean it and upon our return, things got dusted off - but the mini fridge was filthy and the toilet was dirty underneath - which you could see when sitting in the tub - and the tub wouldn't shut off. They also slipped the wrong bill under our door at checkout. Very disappointing. When we nicely complained, the manager did give us $100 off - but rather grudgingly. The rest of the staff - housekeeping and the bellmen - were are terrific! But as I said - for a "grand hotel" very disappointing.

not what it should be

Would not recommend Sun, Jul 27, 2014
The staff is courteous but the hotel is tired and dated. Not even a bathrobe in the room. I ate at two of the hotel's restaurants and found them to be average or below and very expensive. The location is great but there are other hotels in that location that would probably been much better.

A Great Chicago Weekend

Would recommend Mon, Jul 21, 2014
The Drake provided a perfect home for a weekend of Chicago experiences. Its location is perfect for strolling the Magnificent Mile or enjoying views of Lake Michigan. The Hotel itself was memorable - stylish, beautiful and comfortable. The staff was attentive and helpful. We appreciated the commitment to excellence that was evident throughout our stay.

Family Trip

Would recommend Mon, Jul 14, 2014
The Family guest room was amazing. Very comfortable and large. Walking distance to amazing shopping and restaurants. This is an older and very elegant building so plumbing was a bit slow, though not a big deal. If you are traveling with kids and want a comfortable room to lounge in between city activities this is great!

Dining

Pancake House for breakfast is a quick walk and good food. Sit outside if weather permits. The concierge recommended and it was a good pick.

A great old hotel.

Would recommend Sat, Jul 12, 2014
A really great old master hotel. Our 3 day stay was perfect. Great breakfast. Close to many downtown Chicago shopping venues. Our first stay here since the 1980's and it remains one of favorite places to visit.
