Built during New York’s Golden Age, The Drake’s renovation in 1999 kept intact many of the building’s Art Deco touches while making rooms more business traveler-friendly. Each suite boasts large workstations with personal fax machines, data ports and multi-line speakerphones. Corporate guests also appreciate the top-notch meeting facilities, featuring blackout shades, state-of-the-art equipment and, in the boardroom, individual power sockets and phone jacks at each seat. Room size varies depending on floor and type, but most are spacious and include a wet-bar and comfortable seating area. The décor has a consistent modern European, big-hotel sensibility, with a color scheme ranging from shades of butterscotch and moss to deep purples and blues. After a busy workday, guests flock to the Q56 restaurant and lounge, which specializes in unique seafood dishes and offers a kitchen-side Chef’s Table that guests can book for tastings. Direct access to French gourmet food shop Fauchon elevates an otherwise unremarkable lobby.


Pros: Excellent business facilities and spacious suites—many with terraces.

Cons: After work hours, the area is not exactly hopping, so purely leisure travelers may feel removed from the action.
