A very last minute meeting resulted in a very last.minute reservation at the Drake..the only available room was with twin beds but we were in a jam and booked it. Upon arrival the valet and bellman promptly took the car and the bags...check in took mere minutes and we went off to inspect our twin bed room. Suprisingly, the room was great, huge bathroom,big closet, super comfy fluffy beds which made me happy.
We went down to the bar and had drinks and snacks, specifically manhattens, deviled eggs and chicken wings and all were perfect. The bar is old school fun.
We ordered room service for breakfast and made some crazy requests on the room service hangtag you leave on the door. Everything thing we asked for was done perfectly...we wanted poached eggs on spinach on top of tomatoes and they did it! Anyway we got a late checkout and made our meeting happy and rested.
