My wife and I stayed here because the rate was excellent. Given the notoriety and visibility of the Drake, my expectations are slightly higher. Room: B, in good shape, but due to the age of the property and the layout of the rooms, there is room for improvement. Staff: Doorman and Check-In - A, Bell Man and Breakfast Buffet Staff, D. Non of them cared about service, and there was no sense of urgency or attention to detail. We found a good deal and stayed there as a result. Without the same deal, we wouldn't come back.
