I loved my stay! The Drake is what it says it is, and that’s rare! I’ve stayed all over the world and this is a great example of a classic urban gem for Toronto! HUGE SHOUTS to the staff especially Xzennis, who was honestly the example of great service, humble, attentive, real and made a difference in my stay. Feeling valued as a guest these days isn’t easy for any F & B or Hotel, and it’s clear that The Drake has a benchmark for hiring good people to do just that! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Will be back soon!

You must reserve parking in advance, as they do not have adequate space. We parked a block away and it was about the same price. Everyone was so accommodating adn friendly, the bar and restaurant are patronized by regulars and locals, in addition to hotel guests and the food was really good. The area is still in development, but there are lots of great spots to dine within walking distance. Most things you'd want to visit as a tourist are not walkable and driving there is a nightmare. Parking gets pricey too, nowhere is it free,

Great hotel in a great part of Toronto. Fun decor, great vibe, helpful & friendly staff. Thanks Jess! Great jump off for lots to do and eat. Took me a bit to get room temp right in old wing, will try modern wing next time I’m in TO. Food very good, avocado toast recommended. I’ll be back.

The Drake is a trendy hotel, restaurant and arts space, a winning formula. My family and I went for brunch one fine Saterday on the rooftop patio. Our server Kia was very proffesional, attentive, and personable… so much that my mom and her hugged after brunch… its that kind of place not cookie cutter, staff care and make the effort to connect. I’d return just for the service and the vibe. Food was really good (almost excellent), I ordered eggs benedict with peameal bacon and spinach which was well prepared. My sister, avocado toast which she enjoyed. There are many creative vegetarian options. My two sons-in-law both opted for the burger which were really good… a touch above average. A few in our party had the bloody mary which was aveage, served with 3 mediocre olives on a skewer. My expresso, just so-so, needs improvement. Should you go, yes! Especially if you’re lucky and have Kia as your server. The Drake has its own unique vibe drawing like-minded artsy types, the rooftop patio is a great spot for brunch. What would make it “excellent”? More attention to detail for the food and drinks. For example, home made ketchup or old fashioned chili sauce instead of ketchup with the eggs… more “artisinal” touches would elevate food to the next level. Same applies to the drinks. Espresso, no excuse, better beans, dial in your grind and train your staff. Reccomended

We booked this hotel based upon the past reviews and were excited for our 3 nights. When we arrived, we were told by the front desk that the room we booked was unavailable because their corporate sales department sold out the whole hotel for 2 of 3 nights we were there. They said we were “lucky” they didn’t cancel us. Instead, they “upgraded” us to the Artist Apartment. This was outside of the hotel….three doors down, with a filthy entrance to a huge flight of stairs. The apartment was nice, but had no place to hang clothes or put our suitcases. The shower flooded into the bathroom. Knob on faucet fell off in sink. Mini-bar not stocked. Housekeeping didn’t show up. Front desk was of minimal help and knowledge. The hotel’s entire staff seemed focused on the upcoming Toronto Film Festival arrivals…..and certainly not these two out of country travelers…..with years of travel experience to base our judgement on. Hip, but unprepared is the best description I have of their treatment.

Loved this art filled hotel. Totally enjoyed every nook and cranny. The restaurant, café, sky bar were all terrific. The Malin & Goetz Bath products were wonderful as were the dispensers. I would def return to this hotel.

My partner and I just returned from a little getaway in Toronto, we had decided to treat ourselves with a room at the drake hotel. I had heard about it quite a lot and thought the location would be ideal to explore by foot. We booked a pad in the oldest portion of the hotel since which were the best priced (but still outrageously high imo). The pad was nice, nicely furnished with cute touches. Be advised however that the room are very small and the bathroom glass sliding door don’t offer much privacy into the toilet and shower area. The first two night went allright despite the music being a little loud at night. Some part of the hotel were also booked for private events and could not be accessed. It’s Saturday night that things turned a bit sour for us, we came back to our room after the day and found our room had not been serviced ( bed undone and towels weren’t replace) which was odd. The music was especially loud. We expected things to quiet down a little bit around midnight or at the very least, around 3 AM, but it never did. The loud music and bass continued until 7 in the morning, keeping us awake most of the night. No notice or anything was given, and when we disclosed our disappointment in the situation at the front desk upon check out, we didn’t get any more explanation or anything from the staff. They also informed us the lack or room service was due to some of the cleaning staff not showing up. They only offered us a 25$ off a breakfast at their restaurant which I find is a pretty ridiculous offer considering a night at their hotel runs at around 400$ a night! Quite disappointed with our stay, I think the oldest wing is not much of a hotel, rather a big club/restaurant and event spot with a few beds sitting on top of it. Definitely go for the modern wing or book somewhere else if you intend on sleeping…

Enjoyed The Drake Rooftop recently. Friendly, though very busy, waiter. Good food, wonderful ambience. Until the resident mouse appeared and did a few twirls in the middle of the room. And reappeared periodically. Unconcerned stafff said he basically lives there, from construction nearby. Since the venue is partially opened to the outdoors, it's understandable, I guess, but there's just something about a mouse milling about a restaurant that kills the appetite..and we all stopped eating as soon as his antics began. Thought this could be our new handout until Drake, the mouse, made himself known.

I just have to give all of my appreciation to this hotel. I received a phone call from Tarrin today regarding my stay. I had booked this hotel through Expedia. We had an out of province family emergency and in all the chaos and stress I completely forgot to cancel my reservation. I sent an email to the hotel explaining my situation and received a phone call today saying the would reverse all charges. I cannot explain how grateful and appreciative I am. Top notch compassion and customer service. I will not hesitate to book here again. Once again thank you.

We traveled in from Seattle and Denver for my bachelorette party in Toronto. I was determined to stay at The Drake because I had great memories from staying here nearly 10 years ago. I was pleased to learn that they had expanded and renovated since my last visit and we stayed in the new wing of the hotel. The lobby was beautifully decorated with a sexy lounge space, area where you can jam on your laptop, and chic bar. The front desk staff were all incredibly welcoming, helpful and kind. We loved the funky room decor, comfortable beds, luxury bath products, and Drake branded sweatshirt robes. HUGE fans of the long sweatshirt robes. The hotel is located within walking distance of several hip restaurants and bars, including the ones on property. We enjoyed a live show at Underground and lovely breakfast at the cafe. We also had drinks at Sky Yard and the restaurant, as well as danced the night away to their awesome house DJ. An overall fantastic hotel stay and epic weekend!!!
