The Drake


1150 Queen St. West, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The Drake is thrilled to be expanding its 19-room flagship property, The Drake Hotel on West Queen West. The 32-room, five story expansion, designed and constructed in collaboration with longstanding Drake partners Diamond Schmitt Architects, Design Agency and +tongtong, alongside The Drake’s in-house design team, integrates our historic building into a dramatic new superstructure. It will include an extraordinary fifth floor penthouse suite, a green rooftop, a central courtyard visible from every floor, an intimate lobby bar, a green room for artists, semi-private meeting space and a separate entrance specifically for guests of the hotel. With a new total of 51 hotel rooms, The Drake Hotel aims to achieve a perfect proportion and harmony of hotel rooms – not too big, not too small – that will allow for more guests to enjoy the personal and locally attuned experience the property is known for. The new building will intersect strategically with the current Drake Hotel, including via the main dining room. The expansion is expected to be completed in the spring of 2021.
