Since 2004, The Drake Hotel has been a Toronto landmark with our unique approach to all things art, entertainment and hospitality. Our design-oriented hotel is known for stylish rooms and shared space. We celebrate culture and art, and always have something going on, from live music, to rotating art installations, and culinary events with some of food's hottest talent. Even if you’re not staying here, come for a taste of Corporate Executive Chef Ted Corrado's playful, seasonal takes on classic dishes, or sip an award-winning cocktail on the rooftop Sky Yard.
