This was our first time in Chicago & the Drake is the best way to experience it.
We were celebrating our engagement so the Hotel very kindly ungraded us from our deluxe exec room to a suite, which was sweet!
The history of the hotel is just great with some very notable people whom have stayed / dined there, Marilyn Monroe, Princess Diana, Vince Vaughan, woody Allen are just a few that have enjoyed the Drake.
Breakfast in the Drake Bros restaurant overlooking the lake was a great way to start your day.
We found that you can walk everywhere from the hotel & really take in the sights & shops, & after a day of walking we enjoyed the cocktails & steaks the hotel's restaurants had to offer.
The only downside was we had to call front desk to have our slippers & robes bought to the room as housekeeping had forgotten them & no real spa, in the way of steam room. But all in all just magnificent. We were very happy & look forward to our next trip to Chicago & stay at the Drake
Spoil yourselves & check into this place

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
