We stayed at The Drake the first weekend in May. It was a beautiful weekend on the lake. This hotel has a great location with a short walk to the lakeshore and a short walk to many popular attractions in the Windy City. The Drake is close to the Hancock building, American Girl and Water Tower area of the Mag Mile. Inside the lobby, there is a very elegant hotel. This is a great hotel for anyone who appreciates the opulence of older hotels. We had a great view of the lakeshore and we can't wait to stay at this property again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
