Fodor's Review

Built in 1920, the grande dame of Chicago hotels stands tall where Michigan Avenue and Lake Shore Drive intersect in the city's swanky Gold Coast. The Drake's stately look was inspired by an Italian Renaissance palace, and the sounds of a fountain and harpist beckon at the Palm Court, a traditional setting for afternoon tea (it's especially appealing during the winter holidays). There's live music in both the Palm Court and the legendary Coq d'Or bar on Friday and Saturday nights.
