Hotel Guest Reviews of the The Drake Hotel

Our hotel ratings and reviews are from real hotel guests. Priceline.com ensures that its reviews are guests-only by proactively sending hotel surveys to customers after they've completed their hotel stays. In the post-stay surveys, priceline.com hotel customers are asked a number of questions about their stay and the hotel. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best, the survey asks guests to rate their overall experience and specifically rate the hotel's cleanliness, staff and location. Priceline.com does not allow site visitors to post unsolicited hotel reviews.

Location was perfect.
Staff not very friendly.

The staff outside working the cars and taxis were a little better then the check in staff. We will definitely return to Chicago but will not stay at this hotel.

Friendly, helpful staff. Large, clean rooms. Hallways large and bright. Old-Fashioned charm.
Valet parking is a ridiculous $65 a night. Water didn't drain well in shower or bathroom sink. Walls seemed thin. Location on the VERY north end of the Magnificent Mile.

You can't beat the location.
The rooms are small, but that is to be expected due to the age of the hotel.

great location. classic old grand hotel in Michigan avenue area
Hotel is tired and needs to be updated. Bathrooms are old and need modernizing. Staff is ok but not especially helpful or responsive to your needs. I tried to get my shoes shined but the phone kept ringing and no one ever picked it up

Common areas of the hotel are dimly lit. There is a lack of natural light in the common areas and the decorations are old (probably these were done about 40 years ago and haven't been updated since).

Its a Chicago icon.
I was misinformed at the front desk about parking which resulted in extra fees (which the Drake did not offer to refund). Furthermore the front desk did not know how to work the parking card they issued me when they "validated" my parking ticket.

It's expensive. I paid $17 for 2 eggs (over easy) for breakfast in the cafe. Not sure how they justify that.

Absolutely beautiful, historic hotel. Very upscale. Great location at the top of the Magnificent Mile. Staff are attentive and extremely courteous.
Nothing

Furnishings in the room and public spaces are gorgeous. Many great shops in the hotel and a fabulous LaVazza Coffee Shop!

The feel as soon as you walk in the door
No

The decor is very nice! The rooms aren't as nice as the hotel itself but still very nice!
