Where to Eat

Drake Bros. - Offering superb views of Lake Michigan, and decorated with black-and-white vintage Chicago photography. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Coq d'Or - This intimate lounge is a throwback to its Prohibition past, with dim lighting, low ceilings, and brick-red leather booths and bar stools. Martinis are the drink specialty, and a short menu features dishes from the Cape Cod Room, including clam chowder and whitefish. Lunch and dinner are served daily.

Palm Court - Located in the hotel's upper lobby, this Chicago tradition hosts cocktails, coffee, and traditional English tea next to an antique marble fountain. A harpist plays at teatime.

Room service is available until 1 AM.
