Since opening our doors in 2004, The Drake Hotel has kept them open 24/7/365 for locals and travellers alike, becoming a community hub for creatives that just happens to also be an award-winning 19-room hotel. Menus available for take-out, delivery and on our patios, are made entirely from scratch and showcase local ingredients and respect for quality in every dish. The Drake Hotel is also the home to the Drake Underground, one of the most celebrated and beloved small music venues in the city, and an eclectic and constantly changing program of performance and visual art, in addition to an ever-growing permanent art collection. The Underground, along with the Drake’s interior dining, is temporarily closed due to COVID-19 capacity restrictions, but music and art lovers can get their fix digitally via The Drake’s multiple social media channels and blog. Open operations are raring to go with GOODCLEANFUN, The Drake’s health and safety practices upheld at every touch point throughout the Hotel through food and beverage safety practices, guest room housekeeping regimes, cleaning and sanitization standards, and increased use of contactless technology. An expansion of The Drake Hotel is currently underway next door, which will see 32 rooms added to the property, opening in 2021.

My husband and I recently stayed at Drake for the weekend for our anniversary and it was amazing from start to finish. We stayed in the suite, which was impeccably clean and quiet considering it overlooked the restaurant patio. After spending the day enjoying Queen West we were so happy to sit on the rooftop bar for a drink where the staff was so friendly and the drinks were fantastic. We could have stayed there all night just relaxing and chatting. The staff was friendly and helpful and made us feel like it was a real vacation even though we live in Toronto. I honestly can’t say enough great things about the hotel, the staff at the front desk, the rooftop patio and the staff in the restaurant. I’ve been raving to friends and family since I left about what a great time we had and hope to come back again soon. I I don’t think I’ll want to stay at another hotel in Toronto again after staying at the Drake. If I could leave more than 5 stars I would!

Loved my stay at the hotel. Clean, quiet and safe for a woman travelling on her own. Staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant was delicious and my daughter and I loved the fried chicken. Toronto was just starting to open while I was visiting and the upper deck just opened. Sadly we weren’t able to go because we had other plans, but it looked very nice.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Drake for a special occasion! The staff member at night and in the morning was / were fantastic, helpful, cheerful and polite. Just really great customer service which we really appreciated (including the reminder to get a free coffee to go!) The small touches make a big difference! Looking forward to our next stay when all the small businesses and nightlife are back open so we can also enjoy the prime location (and cocktails in the Sky Yard!). Can't wait. Thank you and good luck with the renovations!

Had a staycation during the covid and it exceeded all expectations. Sure, rooms are on the smaller side and I did wish for a bath tub but the room service was heaven, the beds incredible and the staff went above and beyond. We loved it! Hope to go back soon.

We stayed here for only one night but would have loved to stay longer! The Drake Hotel is in a perfect location with so many shops and restaurants all around it in walking distance. The room was extremely comfortable and really well appointed. Breakfast was unfortunately not on offer due to COVID restrictions, but I know the food here is amazing!
