We've just returned from a 3 night stay at this classic stylish hotel. The Drake is everything it claims to be, elegant, comfortable, friendly and in a great location for shopping, dining, and nightlife. Some reviews have made comments of the rooms being 'tired', or having 'too much old world charm', but thats the point of this historic hotel. If you want modern chic, stay somewhere else. Our executive room was very quite, clean and had an extremely comfortable very large bed with luxurious pillows. We had a really great stay and would highly recommend this hotel. The staff were all discreet but friendly and Mary the concierge was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. The palm court is a great atmospheric lounge to relax in with a cocktail after a busy day sightseeing and shopping on the magnificent mile. Go on treat yourself and stay here!!
