Great time at the Drake!

My wife and I stayed at the Drake to attend a wedding. The hotel feel is extremely regal and the service was top notch. It is an older hotel so don't expect a modern look. However, the history of the hotel makes the experience. To know that you are staying at one of the premier landmarks in the Chicago area and that many famous people have stayed there is a cool feeling. Overall it is a great experience even if it is for only one night.

A Bewitching Experience

It was great. The staff is extemely friendly and helpful and the scene for Halloween is great. We were at the Drake three weeks ago and returned again as it was such a nice experience. And the location is perfect.

At Bloomingdales, if you are from out of town you can get a 10% discount on everything that you buy. Just go to the customer help desk

great grand dame of chicago

we had our older daughter (25) with us and the size of our corner room was more than adequate for everyone to have "space", as well as a view of Michigan Avenue!

Love the drake

for an old school, classy hotel you can't ttop The Drake. Beautiful interiors. Perfect location. Great martinis in the atrium bar while listening to live jazz. They just don't make them like this anymore.

Classic, Elegant Landmark

We truly enjoyed The Drake. The room, although small was well equipped, housekeeping was tremendous you never saw them but everything was clean. We extended our stay and never had a glitch. The Drake is highly recommended by 2 frequent travelers.

Take the double decker bus tour. You get your bearings around the city as well as an inexpensive mode of transportation. [...]
