I stayed at the Drake for the first time in over 20 years and was delighted to find the magic was intact. The location in the Magnificent Mile is ideal, the rooms have been beautifully updated, and the hotel has an atmosphere all of it's own. Of course it's not cheap. You're probably paying five star prices for a four-star hotel (There is no swimming pool or spa, and the business facilities are not the best). Against that you have the music, the history and the general feel of the place. The Cape Cod room is the one where Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio carved their initials into the bar. If you have a lake view room, that is a bonus. If you have the opportunity to stay at the Drake, don't let it pass you by.
