i recently had the pleasure of staying at the Drake. after travelling almost nonstop for the past month staying in hyatts and westins i will never stay with them by choice again. The Drake scored 10/10 for customer service, 11/10 for immaculate room cleanliness (appreciation to the entire cleaning crew). from the cafe to the lounge all the servers were kind, attentive, and went above and beyond to inform me of different events.
Eve Harlow from the cafe was so kind to give me tips on art exhibitions in town as well as all the live music options in Toronto. Zoe and Stephanie from reception were warm, professional, informative, and helped me figure out parking, food, etc .
Internet ran beautifully with no glitches and free.
Compliments to the chef I'm in love with the arctic char and coconut shrimp sushi. It was so good when I stayed two weeks ago that I had to come back for the sushi. being half asian i have demanding preset concern usually regarding sushi, but would choose the drake's sushi anyday over any other sushi resto. the Litchi martinis were delicious and fresh.
Staff were so helpful with my heavy luggage and both of them (arrival nd departure) refused a tip. Not only do they desrve a tip but also a raise since it was gladiator effort to hoist my luggage up 3 flights of stairs with kind compassion.
All in all, having traveled many countries and having stayed in abodes from jungle huts to ritz to igloos, I felt so at home at the Drake and must come back to stay in the future. As an artist, I enjoyed that the entire hotel revolves around visual, audio (live bands all the time) art with a laid back, non snob approach. Thankyou for a lovely stay and to the manager, hope you keep all the wonderful people working frontline with customers.
