    Beyond Expectations

    I must share my experience with everyone looking to book an event. I wanted to say THANK YOU so much for an amazing experience this past weekend to The Drake Oak Brook. I will need to recognize all the staff from The Drake on an Amazing job. Hosting our 25 Year Wedding Anniversary at The Drake was the best decision. I have absolutely no complaints whatsoever. The staff and everyone involved in making this event happen were absolutely AMAZING.

    I cannot thank them enough for helping me through this process that turned out beyond expectations for us and all our guest. All our guest were raving about our event and The Drake made this happen.

    I appreciate their time, effort and multiple phone calls to make this event happen. This anniversary party was better than our actual wedding. We enjoyed every minute.

    The Drake Oak Brook, Autograph Collection's reply:

    Hi Kathy G, thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. We appreciate all of the kind words and so glad that you allowed us to be a part of your special day. We love creating these memorable moments and the staff loves hearing how their work impacted your experience. I will be sure to share it all with them. We hope to see you back with us soon for another event. Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness.

    Wedding Venue

    We had our wedding here August 6th, 2022 and it was AMAZING! We worked with Karla and she was great. She answered all our questions. She also answered emails in a reasonable amount of time. Karla and her team were great to work with. They went above and beyond. The food was delicious. Everyone just raved about how good everything was and the portions were out of this world. The hotel is very clean and has a great ambiance to.
    It is such a beautiful venue for a wedding. Everything was perfect. I would choose the Drake Hotel in Oakbrook for a wedding hands down.

    The Drake Oak Brook, Autograph Collection's reply:

    Thank you Kristin for taking the time to do this wonderful review. We are so glad you enjoyed your special day and it was memorable for you. Thank you for mentioning Karla. She is a gem with our brides and so glad you saw it too. Wishing you and your husband the best!

AMAZING location to host any event! The service and food is beyond fantastic! The ambiance and decor is the perfect backdrop for all occasions. We especially love the natural light of the terrace, combined with the stunning blown glass artwork in the Flower Room.....just lovely to photograph!
