Afternoon Tea
Tea has been a long tradition at The Drake, a Hilton Hotel. The Palm Court began serving Tea during the holiday season of 1982 and has welcomed the worlds' most prominent guests such as Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth, and the Empress of Japan. We look forward to adding your name to the distinguished list.

The uniqueness of the beauty of the room centers around a gorgeous limestone fountain with a giant urn as its center motif dating 275 years old, this French bronze by designer David Williams. Most importantly, the ambiance of this afternoon affair is greatly enhanced by the live harp music performed Wednesday through Sunday by our musicians dressed in classical evening gown attire.
