The Drake Review
Built in 1920, the grande dame of Chicago hotels stands tall where Michigan Avenue and Lake Shore Drive intersect in Chicago's swanky Gold Coast; the beautiful lobby 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, especially appealing during the winter holidays. There's live music in the Coq d'Or on Friday and Saturday nights, and the Cape Cod Room serves great crab cakes.
