Buffet was very worth the money, and Gisele is the best!! The buffet was huge with a lot of options to please everyone. We went 3 days in a row, and the choices changed each day. Gisele was lovely and patient with hungry guests.

Always, a "must" for breakfast...everything is fabulous. The buffet is extraordinarily special. The view north...the lake, park, beach, North and East Lake Shore Drives, Michigan Avenue...not to be missed. Always attentive service and frequent refills.

Had breakfast at the Drake Brothers restaurant. Ordered the Eggs Benedict. A different take on Eggs Benedict which included braised pork instead of traditional Canadian bacon. Absolutely wonderful!

Attentive, friendly wait staff kept our coffee coming--great coffee, too! Breakfast was cooked to order and very tasty. A large breakfast buffet was also available and looked very good. We opted for the eggs Benedict with an innovative twist.

I don't usually gravitate to or enjoy hotel restaurants, but Drake Brothers is an exception. I was greeted each morning by Gisela and the waitstaff, taken to a table with a view of Lake Michigan, and served breakfast exactly as I ordered it. Crisp bacon,...More
