Classic Chicago Stay

Great location that is close to the beach, shopping and other Chicago landmarks. Nice room and helpful staff. The room was spacious for two twins and had several useful amenities.

Great Hotel

Wonderful hotel during the holiday season. Steps away from all the shopping. Room is very large. The bathroom is complete with all amenities. There was not enough time to fully appreciate all the things that this hotel had. Wish that I could have stayed a week.

The Drake

The Drake has a stellar location right off Michigan Avenue, and has a high end feel but it is an old hotel...we could hear our neighbors T.V. through the wall, and there is only ethernet cable available (no wireless). For the price, the location can't be beat. Just keep in mind that to stay next to Michigan Ave in a historic hotel at this price- that there are a few little quirks to deal with.
