We stayed on a Club floor, which was near the top. Decent city views, large room. The location is great, very convenient for public transportation or walking just about anywhere in the area.
The hotel is somewhat dated overall-- the room was huge but the bathroom was tiny, and the closet was big but hard to access.
The club had amazing views over the lake, I could have sat there all day enjoying my breakfast.
Sometimes The Drake has great prices on offer, if that's the case I would stay here without hesitation. However, if it's the same price as some of the newer hotels in the area, I probably would try one of them instead.
- 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
