Certificate of Excellence
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.

I was there for mt birthday, and we had a small housekeeping issue and inconvenience. The response by management, Kyle and Sharon, was fantastic, as they upgraded us beyond our satisfaction. While we miss the Cape Cod Room, the breakfast we enjoyed was quite good, and Coq D' Or

When getting to the hotel (after travelling for hours from Ireland) we had 4 rooms booked altogether - booking.com had decided in their wisdom to cancel 2 of them. Talk about panic, one of the rooms was for my 78 year old mother in law. Anyway, Jessica was very nice on
