I stayed at the drake hotel with my wife for only one night. We were sleeping in the crash pad. We were expecting a small room, thats what we got. It was small but ive had worst, and everything was designed in a way that it didnt really pose any problem. We liked the attention given to small details, the drake certainly isnt like other hotels. Some people complained that it was noisy, well there is a lounge, a cafe, a rooftop bar and a concert hall in the basement, all 4 of those were packed full on the night when we stayed, and still when we closed the door to our room, we didnt hear a thing. We noticed when people in the other rooms around would shut their doors but tat was about it. We loved to watch some of the interesting magazines that were in the room. We also loved the assortment on Malin + Goetz products that were available for us to use: hand soap, moisturizing cream, shower soap, shampoo and conditioner, each one a different aroma, very nice. It was our wedding anniversary, I didnt fail to mention this when I booked, so we had a nice little card by the hotel management and a few choco and fruits waiting for us in the room, nice. We chuckled when we got our hands on their sex toy menu, but it was so expensive that we didnt get to try it. They also had a selection of porn flicks, not for rent tho, only for sale, 60$ per, we passed. There was also a big basket full of goodies, foods and night mask and stuff like that, it all seemed yummy, but as in every hotel, was too expensive to buy without feeling guilty.
Location isnt the best, but your a short tram ride away from anywhere you would want to go, so who cares.
Overall Drake was good, I dont regret staying there. But it was for a special occasion and if it had been for more then one night, it would have been too expensive for us. Next time we are in Toronto we will stay somewhere else, but we're still glad we tried it, it was a good experience. Im sure some other people would enjoy it more then we did, especially those with bigger budgets.
