Grande dame of Chicago's luxury hotels, the Drake perpetuates its 1920s atmosphere. It heralds, with ultimate elegance, the historical neighbourhood of East Lake Shore Drive, which starts here and marks the northeastern border of Magnificent Mile. Step up into the dignified lobby to admire the plush red-velvet wall coverings, the wooden coffered ceiling and the elegant Palm Court. Be sure to stay for tea.
