This is an hotel I shall remember with great fondness. The staff are marvelous. Polite, helpful and all with a sense of humour without being over-familiar. A real bonus having different bars/restaurants attached. The food was imaginative and delicious. The hotel has a young vibe, but I didn't feel out of place (in my 50s!) and felt very welcome. The...

The rooms are unique and surprisingly quiet considering how bustling the hotel is. It is a clean, well maintained facility. The restaurants have some of the best food, wine, beer, and drink selection in town, and the staff friendly. Always a fave!

You would think for $188 . American dollars I would be in something a little more than a hostel. No elevator, that should have been my first clue. Please look at the pictures. I wish I could send the smell.

I have been hanging out, drinking, eating, watching comedy, bands, and generally having the best time at The Drake since I moved to Toronto in 2008. Stopping here on your trip through Toronto is a guarantee of a fantastic night. I recently hosted my wedding here and they went above and beyond for our event. The staff is incredibly friendly...

The hotel lobby might take you for surprise I was a little nervous about my choice. But the room was quaint and comfortable and WELL stocked. I found the room charming and comfy. It was very IKEA looking but well laid out. And surprisingly quiet. My room was over the outdoor cafe and their was a lot going on at... More

Roof top bar with 70 degree weather with great food is hard to beat. Staff was awesome! The location was great with bars and dining close by. There was always something going on; live music almost every night. Fun place to stay!

We were met upon arrival by super-helpful Jonathan & he welcomed us immediately & went to the curb on a busy street to expedite getting our bags inside & directing us to the pre-arranged parking. Our room was a "crash pad" which was a very small but efficient & comfortable as well as quiet room on the third floor-no elevator.... More

My stay at The Drake was great. Room and beds are comfy and fun; food and drink were delicious (margaritas especially). Special thanks to Jonathan and Denyse for their attentive and genuine service. Definitely recommended!

If you like corporate hotels or standard fare don't stay at the Drake. If your 15 or 50 and like the unusual, the quirky and odd things to make you smile then stay at the Drake. And the one thing money can't buy.........people who genuinely enjoy having guests, helping them settle in and want you to have a great stay.... More

Drake Hotel is absolutely fantastic. Jonathan is the most helpful host you could ask for, I let him know we were on honeymoon and he made every effort to make our stay extra special. The rooms are quirky, cool and comfortable. Brunch in the bar was fantastic and the bars and cafes in he vicinity make this a great area... More

Neighborhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
