“Breakfast buffet”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We had a free breakfast since Hilton gold members. The buffet was great. Had everything you would want for breakfast, pancakes, French toast, fruit, yogurt, fruit, muffins, bagels and omelet station. Server was great!

“Breakfast with a view of Michigan Avenue”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Drake Brothers had a wonderful breakfast each morning; on the weekends the buffet included an omelet station. On Monday morning, the omelet station was not available, but all the other breakfast staples were fresh and delicious.

“Good breakfast buffet...”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

The breakfast included with my stay was here in the Drake Brother's restaurant. It was good - nice view of the lake, good cinnamon rolls.

I was surprised that so few people were having breakfast. Maybe it's mispriced or has poor marketing.

“Get the area serviced by Araceli”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

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.

“Good breakfasts but over-priced”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

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.
