Absolutely.

Each room has unique artwork and special attributes — our hotel staff know each one inside-out and will help you make the best selection for your stay.

The Drake’s Sky Yard rooftop patio is a smoker-friendly, climate-defiant, all-season space, complete with a cozy fire pit and radiant heat floors in the winter.
What can I expect from West Queen West?
West Queen West (Toronto’s Art + Design district, lovingly known as WQW) is a lively collection of boutiques, galleries, restaurants and nightlife. A short hop on the 501 streetcar takes guests right to the downtown core.
How do I find out about special room rates and hotel packages?
Sign up for our monthly newsletter on our homepage and we’ll keep you up-to-date on seasonal offerings and new amenities.
ARE THE DRAKE’S ART EXHIBITS AND GALLERY SPACES ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE?
Catch the Drake’s very own on-site art curator in our lobby for an impromptu peek at our permanent art collection and get the inside scoop on our upcoming projects, or pop by for a self guided tour. Our rotating exhibit of works changes up frequently, with a new show every couple of months so be sure to drop by often.
DOES THE DRAKE OFFER SPECIAL GROUP RATES?
Not only do our event booking coordinators offer a one stop shop for planning and executing your meeting, wedding, or special event, but the Drake offers our best available rates and courtesy holds for group room bocks. Imagine taking over all 19 rooms for your next group getaway — we’re like a hip B+B with VIP access to all of our venues for hotel guests!
Is the Drake accessible by wheelchair?
Our Café, Lounge and Dining Room are all accessible by wheelchair, as well as a washroom on the main floor.
Is there a dress code?
While everyone is welcome and at heart we have a spontaneous, ‘come-as-you-are’ philosophy, Drake always says that there is never anything wrong with dressing up for a great night out!
Is there a guestlist on weekends?
While the Drake can be very busy on Fridays and Saturdays our best recommendation is to arrive earlier in the evening to avoid lineups. Hotel + dining room reservations are options that you may want to discuss that give you access throughout the building.
