    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.

    Everything!

    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.

    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.

    The location right next to the beach and close to all the attractions was great.

    Some of the staff were somewhat arrogant, I guess, because of our relatively young age (just under 30). Even though it really was a 'value deal' there were a lot of extra charges: state tax, city tax, bell boy, concierge, breakfast ($35/person including tax and tip)...

    Could get BETTER accommodations for the same price anywhere in downtown Chicago. Old facilities, clean but overrated.

    Great location and staff.. Very friendly and helpfull to get around and find stuff. Great view of lake and close to action on Michigan ave. hospitality room was nice with great view. Food was ok .. Expected more for the price.

    Shower was ok. Water pressure was poor. Water ebbed and flowed. Faster to slower. Did not get new towels the last day. The walls are thin or something. Could hear everything in the two rooms on each side of us. For the money I would probably stay somewhere else next time. 325.00 per night plus taxes and 65.00 per day to park... Need to be nicer .. Better breakfast, ect..

    The building is old and tired and needs renovating. This was reflected in the rooms as they were in need of painting and updated fixtures and updates bathroom.
