Expert reviews

CNN review:

“Here’s a home-away-from-home in Toronto’s trendy West Queen West neighborhood. From the tiny Solo room to the extra-large Suite, the Drake Hotel is the perfect place for travelers looking for a more eclectic place to lay their heads.”

Lonely Planet review:

“While other hotels have rooms, the Drake has ‘crash pads, dens, salons’ and a rockin’ little suite, beckoning bohemians, artists and indie musicians with a little cash to burn. The crash pads are tiny yet ineffably stylish and functional.”

Fodors review:

“The Drake is a cultural hub and ultra-cool hotel for international hipsters. Once a notorious flophouse, this 19th-century building is now a haven for successful creative types who want a casual but stylish place to crash.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Toronto.

Telegraph review:

“This arts-oriented, 19-room boutique hotel, originally a derelict apartment block, still maintains the high hip quotient it has enjoyed since it opened. A hit with both local and international creative types, it is a true Toronto cultural hub, covering all the travel basics — art, music, food and shopping.”
