Loading Dock

Loading Dock

The loading dock is located off of Walton Street on the East end of the Drake Hotel. Load in hours are from 5a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. If deliveries need to take place outside of these hours there is a house phone located at the entrance and an associate will be able to assist. Please make sure to inform your Event Manager about your load in and tear down times as to not cause conflict with regularly scheduled hotel deliveries.

Upon entering the hotel there is a hoist to help deliver items to the elevator. The hoist can hold up to 1000 lbs and must have a hotel operator. Each Operator costs $40.00 per hour
