This is our third stay at the Drake. We didn't have a good start as we were getting out of our
car to a woman screaming at the valets about her car. Once we got past that, we were greeted and checked in promptly. Our room on the sixth floor was a suite. However, I would not expect a hotel with a four star rating to have dust everywhere. I could literally write my name in the dust on the tables. The staff were all friendly and we went to the Coq D'Or for drinks and the Palm Court for the jazz band in the evening. The whole weekend was a little frenetic with the people and crowds there for the weekend (not to mention two weddings also going on). The Drake is a nice hotel and their location is wonderful, but if you are looking for a more quiet atmosphere this is not the place.
