The establishment is much antiquated, and renovations on the guest floors are imperative for the Drake to maintain its historical ambience. The fixtures in the bathroom are barely functional.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This is a boutique vintage style hotel. My room had chipped paint, the wallpaper was peeling, the tub was dirty, the scale in the bathroom didn’t work, the doors on the tv stand were broken! I went to store something the entire door came off. Very old furniture all throughout the room. Room was nothing as pictured when I selected this hotel. NEVER again!
