I travel often for work. I’ve been very fortunate to stay at some incredible hotels. This is my 6th trip to Chicago this year and it never occurred to me to stay at the Drake Hotel. I was pleasantly surprised when my itinerary arrived and saw that I would be staying here. I’ve heard great things about the Drake including its history, fabulous service and quaint rooms.
From the moment I arrived at the Drake I was treated with 5 star service. Not only the front desk who thanked me immediately for being an HHonors member but the gentleman who escorted me into the elevator and selected my floor. The room had an amazing view of the lake. I also enjoyed a very large bathroom with a soaking tub. The bed was one of the most comfy hotel beds I’ve ever experienced. I slept like a baby in this quiet downtown hotel.
I ordered room-service for dinner. The meal was excellent and quick.
All in all I highly recommend this hotel. It was a real treat to stay here.
- 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
