Our stay was wonderful. The Drake is a classic, old school hotel that is an amazing gem in Chicago. It is very well maintained by a staff who take great pride in its appearance.
Beautiful landmark hotel in the middle of luxury shopping.
Rooms were very nice but lacking a mini fridge
Beautiful with a classic old Chicago look
Wedding in the coast ball room was phenomenal. The staff throughout the Drake were very kind, courteous and very helpful always. Food was excellent.
A/c in our room didn't work very well. Only disappointment.
Luxury and comfortable
Big room; clean; comfortable bed; good service; staffs were friendly
There was no room in the fridge that the customers can store god; no microwave;
An architectural gem in downtown Chicago with old look but kept updated with modern amenities. It shows it's age sometimes but that is the charm of it.
Just know that there is no lounge access for Hilton Gold members which is strange for a property with a lounge.
Mediocre Drake visit
Location was great.
Booked and paid for a King bed -- received a double bed. Hotel offered $40 off dinner at their in-house restaurant. Could not offer any other room accommodations - nothing with a view, not a bigger room, and not what I ordered and paid for -- a room with a King size bed. Slept uncomfortably most of the night. Separately, went to breakfast in the hotel and the windows were very dirty.
Staff were tremendous
Hotel needs updating. It is old, worn and dirty
Still the good old Drake
The Drake is a Chicago classic. A bit old, but very luxuries and very, very beautiful. The excellent location and nice staff delivering outstanding service make the Drake the place to be.
A bit dated, and almost impossible to roll your own luggage. Unlike most hotels with marble floors, The Drake has the thickest carpet imaginable. Also, the rooms are small for the US (and the money) and you will pay a lot for a view. However, this is the oldest and most desirable location that The Drake sets the standards for all of the other Chicago luxury hotels.
Great Location, staff and comfort
Whinin walking distance to downtown shopping and attractions and great restaurants, walked to Chicsgo Art Institute to take in Van Gough exhibit.
Parking too expensive
Great location and afternoon tea was amazing.
Location and old world elegance
Several elevators broken, tea room not kept up-my chair had a big hole in it. Chairs looked dilapidated, carpet worn, menu insert pages barely legible (bad photo copies). Most pages had faded writing in 3 of the four menus. Also-3 menus did not include alcoholic beverages
Drake is a 2.5 to 3 Star at Best- Do not pay over
Room was 'nasty' for a 4 star hotel. -broken soap dish on the floor -faucet handle was not fastened and fell. -really dirty carpet -old building. poorly renovated. bad paint job in the hallways.
