    Historic hotel with a great location. Check-in staff very quick and courteous. To be a close walk to the beach and local shops was a big plus.

    We felt the room could be a bit more updated and to have a view of windows across street only should have come with a lower price tag. We were on the 10th floor, room 1001.

    We had a very nice room facing Lake Michigan. Concierge was helpful with booking a tour. Staff were very helpful and courteous.

    Room was not ready when we checked in at 3:15 pm

    I liked that I could walk to the places I wanted to go.

    I called ahead to ask for directions for parking. I was told I could turn right on Walton. I could not. The parking attendants were rude. Resorted to valet parking. I asked for a bathroom. I was told by the concierge that she would look into it. Never received a response. I would not stay at the Drake again.

    Location - close to Lake Michigan, loads of shopping nearby, great restaurants close by. In the heart of a great city.

    First day we went to breakfast in the hotel. It was way too expensive.

    The location is perfect near of the shopping and restaurant area, the staff is really helpful and the room is clean, quiet and comfortable. The air conditioning works perfect maintaining the room temperature always stable and isn’t noisy.

    You can listen the next room door when it's closed and in the middle of the night is not very pleasant. Because we planned our trip at the last minute the rate was a little bit higher than the usually are, but that was our fault.

    Lake view makes the high ceilings, old-style glamor of the hotel that much better.

    Well, it's The Drake! It's a wonderful hotel, and the room we got (an upgrade from our original request) was huge, beautiful, and overlooked Michigan Avenue. The location was perfect for our needs. As it was Easter weekend, we got an exceptional deal, and it was fun to stay in such a famous hotel. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. All in all, a great experience, one we hope to repeat.

    The hotel is classy and comfortable in a great location. The Palm Court is a wonderful weekend spot for dancing or a late night cocktail.

  • Older travelers

    everything was great.

    valet parking was toooo much. There should be a discount for parking when staying there.$49.00 a day for parking is too much.
