We visit Chicago regularly to see family but this was our first stay at The Drake. The entrance and lobby are beautiful and the rooms are much more spacious than I expected for such an old hotel. The shower pressure was great and everything was...More
What a wonderful stay we had at the Drake! It was somewhat sentimental for us because the day my husband proposed, almost 4 years ago, the Drake was behind us, in the background. We have wanted to stay there ever since, so on Christmas Eve...More

Dear Lois D,
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and your breakfast in our Camellia room. We look forward to welcome you back for many more memorable stays.

Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
