Exceptional poor quality of the buffet for an exceptional high price ( $ 31)
Room was large and clean. Bed very comfortable. Staff very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this establishment to friends.
Bathrooms are very small. One chair seat cushion had holes in it. Concierge was not familiar with Southwest Airlines 24 hour check in policy and not as computer knowledgeable as I would have expected. Iron was missing.
We loved this historic hotel and all it offered. It was a fabulous anniversary experience for us in Chicago!
The one of staffs at the reception desk was really arrogant. If a guest has a problem or misunderstanding, the staff has to help him/her out, rather than trying to penalize the customer. "I do not know" is not a proper answer to the customer who asks some questions.
Everything was great
I have no compliants
Excellent breakfast buffet and staff, comfortable bed
For over USD 330 a night I expected a bit more, e.g. a bathrope and slippers.
Reserved luxury king room. Expected view of lake. Instead looked out on air handlers and ducting. Listened to air handlers running all night. Pillows too soft. Shower curtain too short, allowed water to leak out on floor.
The staff are excellent, friendly and helpful. Location is really good if you like shopping. Room is veer spacious.
The hotel is a bit old so the facility is sometimes not updated. No wifi in room unless paid. I told my friend when I was in Chicago " there is free wifi everywhere in Chicago except my hotel room". And a pair of slippers is missing is such a 4 stars hotel!
Location room with a view Great breakfasts.
One elevator seemed to be on the blink. People had to push on both outside and inside elevator doors to open and let the guests out.
Carpet with lots of little holes and such…elevators old and paint and such peeling...
It was our anniversary and we were upgraded to the Vista Suite which was a present and welcome surprise. Thanks for the Champaign and anniversary cake. It was delightful.
I loved the old world feel of the place. Chic and fancy!
Comfort and city access wonderful.
The location of the hotel is excellent, you're right in the thick of things on the far end of the magnificent mile. On first impressions as you walk in, the hotel looks very posh, expensive and clean.
However, get up to your room and this will all change. The room smelt musty and old, this is probably because the carpet was older than I am (31 years old). The bathroom was something I'd find in my grandmother's house, grubby and extremely dated. At $500 a night you would expect to the room to have some amenities! But not the drake, the wifi was an additional $12 a night plus tax, there were no complementary drinks or snacks in the room and the staff were not helpfull in the least. The cleanliness of this place in the rooms was disgusting. On arrival the bathroom mirror had miscara on it, this remained for our entire stay. The bath, which used to be white, was now a yellow colour with a black tub where everyone stood in the shower and you could guarantee that at least everyday, one of the clean towels provided, would be stained. To top the stay off, not one person in the hotel asked if we enjoyed our stay. Probably because it was written all over my face!
I was impressed by the time given to make our an I ersatz one to remember champaign sent up to our room and breakfast in executive lounge each day was a lovely treat
Within walking distance of most anything "Chicago". Room was large with closets to spare, sitting area, work space, and a large bath. Very near Hancock Bldg, all of Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier, etc.
I was very excited to stay here becauSe of how much I heard about it. Two good things were the friendly patient staff and cleanliness.
But then I went to get my car and valet was $65!!!! When online I thought it came with the room. Very dissapointing. That and when I woke up my back hurt so bad! I didn't sleep very well... Bed was not so comfy .... I guess I just got excited because of all that I heard but I won't be staying here again. Sorry guys :(
The location cant be beat. Right in the heart of the city with the lake right out the front door. Staff is amazing and so attentive to our needs ready to help at any time. May be a little pricey but hey great service is worth a couple more bucks! BREAKFAST BUFFET IS AWESOME
Bathroom is a little dated and had some lose screws. But I looked past it. Sunday is a heavy check out day so elevators take for ever.
I wish the staff was a little more knowledgeable about transit options in the neighborhood.
I like the lobby, great staff, very helpful, I'll go back for the excellent service.
I hate the elevators, very slow, you had to wait a long time for them, and they do overcrowd. Wifi isn't up to standard, weak connection, you had to sign up all the time, and you have to pay for it, not a problem if the connection is faster. I don't recommend the Drake for business trip, but for a piece of Chicago history and proximity to the action, it's perfect.
The lobby was absolutely beautiful and the food was good
My room...for being the Drake, the room was a cheap looking standard room...actually the bathroom had more decor and style then the room itself. I have paid half less and had beautiful rooms elsewhere...I was disappointed.
The staff were very professional, gracious and helpful. We loved the ambience of the hotel, the centrality and convenience and the level of comfort in the room.
Location, Look of hotel, staff. Room size
Our room was not clean
ALways courteous and professional staff. Food services are good and the Cape Cod room is among my favorite seafood restaurants.
A little pricey, but worth the money.
