We had a wonderful stay at The Drake a few weeks ago. The room was spotless and the price very reasonable. The bed had the comfort we associate with Hilton. The greeting and check-in were excellent and the self-parking worked perfectly and, considering the parking costs in Chicago, the rates were acceptable; same with the wi-fi. To be sure, this is a hotel of the Old School. That is part of its charm. If hotels like this are no longer available, we will all lose something.
