Drake Hotel Chicago
This historic Chicago hotel opened on New Years Eve in 1920. The hotel's construction was financed by John B. Drake and the hotel soon earned a reputation as one of the centers of Chicago social life with its afternoon tea service and dinners and cocktails at the Cape Cod Room. Hilton acquired the property in the 1980s.
