Overview

First opened on the Magnificent Mile almost one hundred years ago, the Drake Hotel is considered “the grande dame” of Chicago hotels. Playing host to Queen Elizabeth, Charles Lindbergh and the Clintons, the hotel is no stranger to guests with discerning tastes and all are treated like kings in the property designed after an Italian palace. Harp music drifts from the Palm Court tearoom through the multi-level lobby and crystal chandeliers dance along the high wood-panel ceilings.

The royal treatment continues in guest rooms outfitted with gold silk duvet covers, Grecian-style antique furniture and views of Lake Michigan and Lake Shore Drive. Amenities like free Wi-Fi, daily newspapers and in-house movies make accommodations feel like home while those staying in suites can indulge even more with fruit and chocolate at turndown.

For a formal meal, guests can dine at the Cape Cod Room before a nightcap at Coq d’Or, the cocktail lounge dating back to the end of Prohibition where live music is performed on Fridays and Saturdays. The hotel is within one block of the John Hancock Center and Water Tower Place while Oak Street Beach and Navy Pier are within a 15 minute walk. 

From the press:
  • "A prime location, storied history, white-glove service, and of course a distinguished guest list" -- Travel + Leisure
  • "It doesn't get more old-time Chicago than The Drake and this esteemed hotel retains its status as one of the finest in the city" -- Michelin Guide
