The Drake, a Hilton Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very professional staff who offered assistance to local sites. Excellent chefs!

We couldn't stop looking at all the details in the hotel. From light fixtures to fountains to beautiful Fred flowers. Helpful staff assisted us with tour Reservations. If you want a cookie cutter hotel go somewhere else. This place has character and is truly one of a kind. I also recommend getting the breakfast package. It was amazing!!!!

This is an older hotel but still very nice. If you don't want new and contemporary, this may be an option for you.

I asked for king bed...got a very small queen. They said that when they dealt with Orbitz it was up to the OPTION of the hotel. Rooms are small. The next night they did move me but had few towels and hair was in tub from someone else. I dont have black hair.

The hotel has nice character and is beautiful. We enjoyed our stay very much!

The Drake prides itself on quality as evidenced by their photos; however, the chairs were worn with gaping holes, and the tables uncomfortably squeezed together the food and service were very good

Our stay began with high tea and ended with a porter telling my daughter, "I was not told a princess would be staying at the Drake..." my five year old daughter is already asking when we will be back at the Drake.

We paid extra for a room with a view and we had a view of a wall. The hotel staff said that we booked it through a third party and it happens all the time. The staff was not nice. We will not go back to The Drake and when booking through Orbitz we will not be fooled by their false claims.

Old, outdated, thin walls, smells, falling apart. Needs a complete makeover top to bottom.

We had a great stay. Loved the room and view of the lake! The bar was so fun as well.

Perfect across the board! Staff, amenities, food- wonderful!

It was a pleasure to stay at the Drake Hotel minus a couple of issues the manager happen to provide excellent customer service and made sure me And my husband left satisfied. We will definitely be back

It was our second time staying at the Drake Hotel and just loved it. Beautiful hotel and the staff was just great..

Outstanding hotel. Classic service. What more can I say?

Very festive. Great decorations through out the lobbys. Clean room-620 clock radio did not function, wrong time, would not reset. set alarm clock, on buzz, and it did not buzz-just flached a very small red "buzz lite" Nice hotel. gvk closet left door knob ripped off-in closet on shelf.

Our room was the size of a postage stamp, wallpaper was peeling, artwork was water stained, and very musty smell. Beware as valet parking was $68.00/night!

The room at the Drake was beyond belief. It was very spacious, the amenities were fabulous and it made our visit feel like we were "home" - not in a hotel.

Room service said it would be 25 min. and they took 45 mins.

Had dinner in the Cape Cod Room...Awesome. The breakfast buffet awesome as well..I plan to return sometime in April.

promises broken by orbitz or hotel?
