Expert Review

The famous lakefront property is marvelously elegant, with a magnificent setting that never fails to attract a slew of royalty and celebrities alike. The hotel recalls the heyday of a regal eras past with a grand design and a trove of prestigious accolades. The beach is just a stroll away, as well as Magnificent Mile, with its designer stores, eateries, and attractions galore. The Drake’s 537 spacious rooms have all been updated with upscale, modern amenities, but still retain their traditional antique-filled decor and large windows framed by heavy, fringed curtains. All the rooms come with executive desks, on-demand movies, in-room safes, and high-speed Internet access; many have sitting areas and boast gorgeous city views and lake views (more expensive). Executive rooms and suites offer additional amenities such as daily continental breakfast in a private lounge (where you can also imbibe free cocktails in the evening); daily newspaper delivery; shoe-polishing valet; packing and unpacking service; and dinner, theater (and other) ticket concierge.
