    The breakfast was slim. I understand the Covid concerns, but more fruit and real half and half would have been nice.

    Drake Tour

    New hotel so it was clean etc. Surprisingly the vibe was just odd for us. Parking is in the rear of the hotel. The door is locked so you have to be buzzed in, which was a bit of a pain with all the bags etc. Location is top notch if you are visiting Drake as we were. Few drawbacks...the bathroom is really small. Also the AC/Heat unit is REALLY loud. That was super odd as this place is new. I did however read other reviews that said the same so it must not be unique to our stay. If going to Drake again we would likely stay again with less expectations.

    I loved the attention to detail in each room— lots of outlets, clean surfaces, soft fresh linens, and ample lighting. The staff member at check-in was a bit rude, but all of the rest of the staff were lovely. Would definitely stay here again!

    Would definitely recommend

    Check in was great and front desk staff was super helpful. Gentlemen who worked the night shift was not so helpful and was more annoyed and rude to us all if we needed anything. Otherwise great hotel, new and clean!

    Nice hotel - but not worth being charged twice!

    Hotel was great - just didn’t need to pay twice. We were told by hotel (after we got our statement a month later and we called) that the payment we made through Hotels.com “wouldn’t run through”, so they charged us $75 on our card. This is unacceptable. Fighting this now.
