My husband I recently went to Chicago for the first time and stayed at The Tremont because that is where the couple we were traveling with made reservations! What a nightmare. The Tremont was dank, musty, moldy, smelly, worn and outdated. We checked out on a Friday night no less and rushed to The Drake. All they had was an Executive Suite, but Fabiola at the Front Desk gave us a "fabulous" rate! Thank you Fabiola! What a difference! Just because a hotel is old and historic, doesn't mean it has to be shabby, and The Drake is anything but! We loved the afternoon tea, cocktails at the Coq D'or and what a surprise to enjoy better seafood at Cape Cod Restaurant than we've had at home in Charleston, SC! Thanks for a wonderful recovery from what could have been the worst vacation EVER! We love The Drake and there's no doubt where we'll be staying the next time we visit Chicago!
- 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
