You don't skimp on style when visiting the Drake Hotel. For some very enjoyable chatter with a local, we enjoyed chatting with an employee named Araceli in the Drake Bros rest.

The food on the buffet was very tasty with a lot of different choices. The only problem was that those dishes which should have been hot were, at best, luke-warm. This includes the coffee. We had the buffet on our first morning. We ordered from the menu on the 2nd day. This was equally tasty and hotter ... but the price was too high for eggs and waffles.

Our family stayed at The Drake Hotel for six days, and we had the pleasure to start our day with breakfast here. We were given the opportunity to enjoy the ample breakfast buffet and have omelets fixed to our specification. My husband loved being able to have his coffee at his leisure while he waited on the rest of our family to join him for breakfast. The buffet had an array of dishes and they were all appetizing and presented nicely. The breakfast was included as part of the package we purchased for our stay. This was a great way to start our day before we toured Chicago.

Love The Drake Hotel, the Drake Brothers restaurant was good, ordered off the menu on the first day and had the buffet on the second. Food was good, but not anything 'special' but the service was outstanding.

We made a reservation and went there for lunch with 4 friends. Six of us total. We thought it would be more of a "trendy" fun restaurant, but it turned out it was the hotel restaurant which essentially seemed to be for taking care of guests for breakfast/lunch. They seemed to be resetting things after the breakfast crowd. Had we known it was the hotel "restaurant" we would have eaten at one of the many Italian places in the neighborhood. Food was fine although we only got about 20 fries with the 2 of us that got sandwiches.
