    For tea and goodies visit Espression by Lavazza, located close by. It is nestled close enough to water tower place.

    The manager on staff for saturday and Sunday 9/4-9/5 was very personable and went the extra mile to meet our needs. The entire staff provided quality service.

    The room had a musty odor and the bed was uncomfortable. Onsite parking is very expensive. No free wifi available.

    We loved the old world charm of this landmark hotel and if there is a better Chicago location I can't imagine where that would be. The staff were very helpful and most courteous at all times. Thanks Drake staff for a wonderful weekend!

    It is a historical hotel with old history. Nice location, not far from the beach or the shopping area. Plenty of good restaurant near by within walking distance.

    The bed is too soft...

    The location was great, and the nice old-fashioned building also a plus.

    The price, a little too costly for the buck you pay.
