The test of a good, if not great, hotel might be its ability to deliver time and again a memorable, fantastic experience...and here the Drake does not disappoint! We planned a trip in April to celebrate a birthday and secured the suite for the weekend. The largest guest room at the boutique hotel, it was more of the same quirky, charming, eclectic bent as the room we stayed in last time, albeit more spacious and with more nifty touches. Yes, the funny, funky doll with chest hair and bondage gear was there, but so was a big screen TV hooked up to DVD player; a very cool sitting area with daybed/sofa, and original art throughout. Despite being the largest room, it was still compact and made great use of space. Again, like last time, be warned that the Drake is a happenin' joint with music and people bouncing around until the wee hours of the morning...it was loud but it felt right and we had no problems sleeping through the bass thump and waking up in the morning to the smell of coffee and baking. Yum! Speaking of which, the brunch was fantastic and the weather was beautiful so the patio was open and we got to experience good food and people watch all in one sitting! As usual, the staff without exception, were phenomenal and are a huge reason why we came back and will keep going back...warning! pay attention to parking signs on the street...had the misfortune of mis-reading the sign on a friday afternoon and fell asleep/took a nap...woke up at 6pm and the car was gone! Sigh. Off to the impound lot to collect the vehicle and park in the right spot. My bad. The Drake staff heard about it and comiserated with me...even got a free drink at dinner which helped...and they also brought out cake...what a fantastic experience (car being towed aside) and we can't wait to get back there again!!! Highly recommend the Drake for a unique and amazing experience...
