    Our stay was wonderful. The Drake is a classic, old school hotel that is an amazing gem in Chicago. It is very well maintained by a staff who take great pride in its appearance.

    Beautiful with a classic old Chicago look

    Wedding in the coast ball room was phenomenal. The staff throughout the Drake were very kind, courteous and very helpful always. Food was excellent.

    A/c in our room didn't work very well. Only disappointment.

    Quaint

    An architectural gem in downtown Chicago with old look but kept updated with modern amenities. It shows it's age sometimes but that is the charm of it.

    Just know that there is no lounge access for Hilton Gold members which is strange for a property with a lounge.
