West Queen West Hotels
The Drake Hotel
1150 W. Queen St., West Queen West
You barely have to leave the hotel bar to feel like you've had a night out on the town at this nineteen-room boutique hotel, which seems to absorb the neighborhood's buzzy vibe. Mid-century modern furnishings, a rose-petal turndown service, and, yes, even a pleasure menu put the Drake firmly in the cool category as far as hotels go. While the Drake is primarily a hotel, it operates as a type of community gathering place with its own concert venue, an extremely popular rooftop bar, an omakase-based sushi joint, and a rotating roster of art exhibits.
