The front lobby is absolutely stunning and the hallways are equally beautiful. Everything was clean. The staff was friendly. Upon arriving to our room we realize that instead of the lake view room that we booked, we were in a room that only offered views of other buildings. Our room was also incredibly warm. I was starving so we decided to turn our A/C down before leaving for a few hours. Our room was still pretty warm when we returned and it didn’t get any cooler as the night when on so we opened a window. Don’t get me wrong our room was beautiful but not what I was expecting for the price that we paid. If this review was based on initial appearance and the customer service, The Drake would absolutely receive 5/5. Since it’s based on my entire stay here it’s getting a 2/5, I just wanted a room with a lake view and a comfortable nights sleep which wasn’t possible due to the temperature of our room. I was so excited to stay here and my fiancé wanted to stay at another hotel in the city but I argued my point and won. Now I’m wishing that I would have taken his suggestion.

Overall, the experience was approving of my spouse and I’s liking. We loved the lake view and the great staff service. We did hope that the room had few accommodations but the one night stay was all that we can ask for.

Why must I add a minimum of 50 characters to rate the hotel? This is the result of some inane idiot programmer.
