The Drake Hotel sits at the top of the Magnificent Mile, overlooking the shores of Lake Michigan at Oak Street Beach. Situated between the exclusive East Lake Shore Drive and Walton Place, The Drake is perhaps Chicago's most luxurious hotel. It is known for its high tea service, which is recommended even for those whose pockets aren't quite deep enough to be overnight guests. Otherwise, the restaurant Coq d'Or offers delicious food in a lounge atmosphere.
For homesick Brits, the hotel offers high tea in the Palm Court.
