Introducing the Camellia Room, formerly the Drake Bros.' restaurant, serving breakfast daily and available for private events. The dining room overlooking The Magnificent Mile and the Lakefront has been restyled by Diane Rostenkowski with Concept Group Interiors, taking inspiration from The Camellia House, which was the hotel's internationally renowned floral designed dining room circa 1940. The refresh maintains the historic integrity of the room's architecture, while exuding a contemporary look and feel. The dining room is adorned with trellis patterned wallcovering, crystal beaded chandeliers and wall sconces, decorative marble tile floor, ornate window treatments with beaded valance and tie backs, and an elegant floral lattice patterned carpet with a color palette of deep blues and golds, all complimenting the hotel's historic interiors and the city's landscape.

Nice setting and the breakfast buffet was good; however no menus were offered to us which would have been nice even though I think most folks default to the buffet. Service was very good.

With a reservation, they still made us wait in line for 20 minutes even though our table was ready. They ran out of food twice in the 60 minutes that we were there. And the meal was still over $200 for 6 of us. Overall horrible experience!

$89 for a Christmas pre-fix and cold store bought bread at the table started the meal.

Very limited menu. You started with Butternut squash soup and then one of the three entrees
was a Butternut pasta?

Outrageous price from drinks.

Truly an abysmal experience. We reserved a table for five on Christmas Day and were subjected to one of the worst meals of our lives. Rubbery fish, watery soup, soggy vegetables, and rock-hard “desserts”. Never, ever again.

Christmas dinner. Price was very high. Food was subpar. But I realize you pay for the location and it WAS Christmas day when not many other choices. Hotel was great to stay in though.

This place only has a breakfast buffet. They previously had a full menu, including the buffet, but not now. Buffet was great before and still is, but it is now overpriced for what you get. Room is pretty and view is nice.
