The Drake is a classic Chicago hotel. It definitely has an older feel to it from the restaurants, bars, lobby and rooms. And by older, I do not mean bad. The room was large and had a very nice view of the lake and lake shore drive looking north. I also had a very nice sitting area in the room. The service was great and the breakfast in the morning was excellent. The location was also perfect, especially if you are going to be around the north Michigan Avenue area. I would definitely stay there 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
