Dear Knights, Dames and Priest Knights:

The landmark Drake Hotel on Michigan Avenue is now accepting reservations for the 2022 Investiture in Chicago.

We have some great news!

The Drake is offering rooms to our members at a discounted base price of $169/night which is nearly half off their standard rate.

Even better news is that the Drake is extending this special pricing for 3 days earlier and/or 3 days after the Investiture weekend. This is a great opportunity to explore Chicago before and after the Investiture while staying in its most iconic hotel.
