The Drake Hotel, built as the nation’s first urban resort, is the leader in luxury, rightly situated at the top of the Magnificent Mile. Magnetized as a lavish property designed for opulence and desire we encourage our guests to indulge themselves in any of our plentiful amenities. No other Chicago hotel has inspired more legendary acclaim on par with The Drake. This timeless property affords guests easy access to the city's most exclusive shopping, nightlife and dining.

Located in the Gold Coast of Chicago, formerly known as the Astor Street District, this has been the center for Chicago’s proper society for over a hundred years. Upscale boutiques frame the historic tree lined streets of the Gold Coast.

Guests can enjoy our in-house 3000 square foot fitness center. Here we feature PRECOR endurance equipment, strengthening and cardio machines, free weights, and plasma televisions. Alternatively, or in conjunction with The Drake's facilities, for an additional fee, guests can have access to the state-of-the-art off-site Gold Coast Equinox exercise facility that features a deluxe spa, pool, personal trainers and group fitness.

The one-of-a-kind Drake Arcade features only the finest vendors’ classic elegance and design: Chanel, George Jensen, Kamp Galleries, Mangel Florist and Travel Traders.

Our multitude of renowned restaurants include the celebrated Coq d’Or, posh Palm Court, distinguished Drake Bros.’ and of course The Cape Cod Room where Joe DiMaggio and new wife Marilyn Monroe carved their initials into the bar still to be seen today.
