Drake Hotel Toronto is a self-described “hotbed for culture.” The arts thrive throughout, and set the stage for a dynamic stay in one of the hippest Toronto hotels around. The Drake is as well known for artsy, charismatic hotel rooms as it is for scores of special live events. Within the short, five-year history of the Drake Hotel Toronto, remarkable things have happened. Drake Hotel music events, culinary specialties, arts-inspired gigs, and a notably sleek and hip ambiance have drawn those far and wide for a taste of this Toronto landmark hotel and entertainment center.
The Drake Hotel Toronto offers a small but excellent choice in rooms and suites. Though rooms are smaller in size, square-footage does not define them in the least. Rooms might be compact, but they feature exposed red brick, sky-high ceilings and are filled with a cache of modern tech-gadgets including LCD TVs, CD and DVD players, iPod docking stations, and high-speed Internet. En suite bathrooms provide a modern combination of glass, stone, and upscale fixtures. Super-soft queen-sized beds with Sealy mattresses seal the deal for a good night's rest. Room service is another key element added to these stylish guest rooms. Choose from a bevy of snacks and beverages from the hotel's restaurant. Guest rooms range from Crashpad, Den, Salon, and Suite which vary in size from small to extra large respectively. For added luxury and comfort, the Suite offers more than double the space making it ideal for entertaining guests or just lounging around. A distinct living area, bathroom, and bedroom means each space caters to specific needs. Original art works, leather sofas, and millwork countertops are added novelties.
From the outside, the Drake offers a hint of fifties architecture blended with current in design trends. New and old meet headlong in both hotel rooms and public spaces, creating an intriguing, backdrop. The interior is fashioned with unique architectural and cultural elements offering a place where dining, arts, music, and other live performances intermingle seamlessly. These intrinsic values are evidenced throughout the building and set the Drake apart from other leading hotels: a distinct and unique vision.
Drake Hotel music events are held indoors and on the Sky Yard patio outside. With a location only minutes from downtown Toronto, music events draw crowds seeking out choice city nightlife. The Drake Underground is a versatile venue located underneath the hotel, and fit for any occasion or event. Drake Hotel music events are often held at the Underground as are countless private functions. The diverse array of modern gear means the space adapts to meet all needs. Drake Hotel Toronto events at the Underground happen one after another because of well-equipped, diverse, and dynamic backdrops for every occasion.
Room 222, the Underground, the Drake Lounge, the Café, and the Sky Yard together create an unbelievable station for a wide array of events. Sky Yard is particularly appealing because of its year-round designation, smoke-friendly atmosphere (in a city that is virtually smoke-free), and great Drake Hotel Toronto events, mostly in the warmer months. This pillow-lined space is equipped with a fire pit for cold months. The Drake is simply one of those all-season places you can head to and never worry that it might be dull. There is always something going on.
Each distinct component of the Drake ties together illustrating one of the most successful luxury hotels in the city without a colossal price attached. The bonus of staying and playing is the hotel caters as well to daytime needs as it does to nighttime wants. The café serves up piping hot coffee and breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. With complimentary wireless and so many tasty respites, the Drake Café has been a long-time neighborhood hotspot.
