The Drake Hotel - Chicago

We had family in town last weekend. I thought it'd be fun for all of us to stay on the Magnificent Mile (Michigan Avenue) - the shopping mecca of Chicago. I chose The Drake Hotel. It was built in 1920. It was used as a set for scenes in "The Blues Brothers", "Risky Business" and "My Best Friends Wedding". Princess Diana even stayed here once.

Lots of room

Palm Court - Where they serve afternoon tea.

  1. Love all the "stuff". One of the first things we do each morning is check out "family" blogs. Truely hope you all had a great time together. Wish we could have been with you. We don't comment much but we very much look forward to the new blogs.

    Love you all,
    Larry and Becky
