      • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

      The Drake is an old hotel. The room we were in smelled musty, had worn carpet and peeling paint on the ceiling. There was no mini frig or microwave. One window blind was broken. The beds were very comfortable and the AC worked great. We stayed here because of it's long standing reputation as a grand hotel, but, won't revisit.
