Expert Reviews
Zagat
A stay at the “elegant” and “historic” Drake Hotel is “more about the experience, ambiance and history than the rooms”, which could use “a little updating.”.
Frommer's
Chicago's version of New York's Plaza or Paris's Ritz may no longer be the most luxurious hotel in town, but its public spaces still maintain the regal grandeur of days gone by.
The Telegraph
The Drake time-warps you back to an age when hotels had sweeping staircases, gilded ballrooms and harpists plucking in the lounge. Rooms are less high society and more ordinary, though...
