Recent guest reviews

This hotel was incredibly sub-par. It has the impression of sophistication, but in reality everything had an old, worn feel to it. The room was dated, cheap with fake “fancy” furnishings and crappy coffeemaker and no fridge. We could hear whole conversations from the guests next door. The only thing going for this hotel is it’s amazing location. If this hotel was outside the city it would be a run of the mill generic place.

Its and older property which both makes it very cool but kind of strange at the same time. In its day it was amazing now it is a little tired. The bathrooms are very small so my wife and I had trouble getting ready at the same time. However when we got back about 11:30 there was a great little two piece band in a grand restaurant that was very fun to dance to. The Staff was amazing!!!

It was a nice hotel nice location and friendly staff

Great value, location, ambiance. Only complaint would be the room was very warm. Even putting down to 62* didn't cool rhe room. Would stay again

Location, service, cleanliness, accommodations, hospitality

The staff was friendly. The room was very dry, making our noses very stuffy. The room was cool and there was no extra blanket.

Overall not great. Hotel as not been taken care of. AC did not work. The front desk said the heat was on and if I wanted i could "crack a window". Sleeping in 72 degrees is not ideal! Would not stay here again.

As usual, the Drake is comfortable, has many stories hidden in its walls and decor. The hotel people were all great and have good humor and fun to chat with. My only negative is that there were two of us and only one desk chair. We could have used an easy chair for my wife to rest a bit instead of laying on the bed (clothed). I asked for one, but it didn't materialize, so we went along without and then I guess we were gone before they could scare one one up. Ah, well.... next time I'll make sure. But, hey! It's a great hotel to stay in. Food is incredibly pricey ($70 for breakfast for two plus tip, Ouch!) so be careful.

Perfect location for holiday shopping and fine dining!

Great location in city, easy to get to shopping. Served our purpose for the day

What a great place! Service was prompt and the staff was extremely courteous! My girlfriend and I had a wonderful weekend!

Drake hotel is losing its integrity, walls starting to smell like mold, the room we stayed in it was leaking toilet each time we flush. Towels are extremely old felt like we were using very old towels. They were out of water for the honors members. Staff always takes very long to find reservations. It shouldn't take half an hour to check in. Thanks. I was not happy at all.
