    Best Wedding Venue!

    From the minute we walked into the Drake when looking at venues for our January wedding, we knew the Drake was for us. Every member of the staff was excellent, especially our catering director, Shaun. Our guests LOVED the venue and said our wedding was the most beautiful, organized, and fun wedding they had been to. The weather was terrible our wedding weekend but you wouldn't have known because guests had everything they needed from a bar, cafe, coffee shop, even a florist, inside the Drake. Also, getting to use the Princess Diana suite *complimentary* was an absolute treat! It was magic and I highly recommend it to anyone looking at Chicago wedding venues!

    My Dream Wedding!

    We got married on February 22, 2020 at The Drake Hotel in the Gold Coast Room and our wedding was beyond perfect! I had the absolute pleasure of working with Shaun and from day one he was incredible. No matter what time I emailed him, he always has a response for me within minutes (seriously!!!). He was so attentive and truly made us feel like our wedding was just as important to him as it was too us.
    Shaun made my crazy dream of a 35 person head table come to life and made sure our wedding day went off without a hitch. His incredible team including Holly, Jose and Sarah were all so helpful, patient, and responsive. I felt so comfortable putting my wedding in their hands!
    Sarah worked closely with my father-in-law to plan our Friday night welcome party in the Palm Court. She closed off a space for our 80 guests to kick off our wedding weekend and it was absolutely perfect!
    Chris was an absolute all-star helping unload our cars, transporting various items between all of our rooms, and making sure we were always taken care of.
    I cannot say enough wonderful things about Shaun, his team and everyone else at the Drake who made our wedding weekend and absolute dream!! It was more incredible than I ever could have imagined! Thank you!!!!!
