No other Chicago hotel has inspired more legendary acclaim on par with The Drake. This timeless property affords guests easy access to the city's most exclusive shopping, nightlife and dining. A fully equipped fitness/wellness center, business center and meeting rooms are available (surcharge). The stunning Gold Coast Room can accommodate 600 guests. Afternoon Tea at The Drake, A Hilton Hotel is as Chicago as a hot dog at Wrigley Field or a ride on the Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier. High society has always recognized The Drake Hotel as the quintessential social hotspot. Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth and the Empress of Japan have all been seen in the Palm Court. Though The Drake has progressed both architecturally and technologically over the past 93 years, the roots of The Drake Hotel run deep beneath Lake Shore Drive into Real Chicago.

We absolutely loved our Drake experience. The atmosphere is grand and fancy, the afternoon tea was a unique event, the location is great--near shopping and a small park. We did not rent a car: took Uber/Lyft or walked. The only surprising issue was it was difficult to get an Uber from the airport (took about an hour) and it was twice as expensive as previous rides. Maybe arriving a Friday evening made the availablility scarce. And issues of Covid seem to make the rides less available, maybe fewer drivers. Other than airport, rides were easily available. Healthcare protocols for Covid were followed at Drake and throughout Chicago. Can't wait to return to the Drake very soon!

Classic and historic hotel in a fabulous location. Sadly neglected, tired, and in need of a refresh to restore this Grand Dame. Room decor is stepping back to 1983, furnishings are banging up, dust caking on chandeliers.
