2.0 Poor
The hotel rooms are very outdated and so is the staff. I was treated poorly by greeter and desk check-in. The room was deplorable. Everything was dated and broken. My view out the window was a fire escape for$200 a night. I felt the rudeness was racially motivated by the entire white haired senior citizens employed at the Drake.
A
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Our stay was wonderful. The Drake is a classic, old school hotel that is an amazing gem in Chicago. It is very well maintained by a staff who take great pride in its appearance.
A
9.7 Wonderful

Cons:Rooms were very nice but lacking a mini fridge
A
9.7 Wonderful

Cons:There was no room in the fridge that the customers can store god; no microwave;
A
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:An architectural gem in downtown Chicago with old look but kept updated with modern amenities. It shows it's age sometimes but that is the charm of it.
Cons:Just know that there is no lounge access for Hilton Gold members which is strange for a property with a lounge.
A
5.7 Fair
Pros:Location was great.
Cons:Booked and paid for a King bed -- received a double bed. Hotel offered $40 off dinner at their in-house restaurant. Could not offer any other room accommodations - nothing with a view, not a bigger room, and not what I ordered and paid for -- a room with a King size bed. Slept uncomfortably most of the night. Separately, went to breakfast in the hotel and the windows were very dirty.
A
6.2 Okay
Pros:Staff were tremendous
Cons:Hotel needs updating. It is old, worn and dirty
A
8.5 Very good
Pros:The Drake is a Chicago classic. A bit old, but very luxuries and very, very beautiful. The excellent location and nice staff delivering outstanding service make the Drake the place to be.
Cons:A bit dated, and almost impossible to roll your own luggage. Unlike most hotels with marble floors, The Drake has the thickest carpet imaginable. Also, the rooms are small for the US (and the money) and you will pay a lot for a view. However, this is the oldest and most desirable location that The Drake sets the standards for all of the other Chicago luxury hotels.
A
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Whinin walking distance to downtown shopping and attractions and great restaurants, walked to Chicsgo Art Institute to take in Van Gough exhibit.
Cons:Parking too expensive
