Modern retreat for healthy living in downtown Chicago
The dana hotel and spa in Chicago's River North neighborhood balances the beauty of natural elements with the latest technology to create a modern retreat for healthy living. From the progressive health center to the Zeppelin MP3 media system in each room, the dana's core philosophy of wellness and individuality is expressed in all elements of the hotel. Bathed in natural light, the dana is an oasis of serene relaxation in a bustling city.
Highlights
  • Sweeping views at Vertigo Sky Lounge
  • Spa at dana and 24-hour fitness center
  • Enjoy American favorites with a global twist at freestyle food + drink
      Rooms
      Sleekly decorated with hints of Asian influence, standard rooms at the dana hotel and spa feature a half wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and walkout balconies. Serenity is infused in everything from the natural, sustainable floors to the 300-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets over pillow-top mattresses. Glass separates bath from boudoir and illuminates the shower rooms, featuring Italian rain shower fixtures and handcrafted tiles.
      Features
      With its mantra “the pleasure of giving,” the dana hotel and spa sets out to deliver a unique experience to its visitors. The spa offers an extensive array of treatments, from prenatal massages and organic manicures to customized facials and Italian mud body wraps. The focus on wellness continues through the high-tech fitness center, which is outfitted with Italian TechnoGym Kinetic Equipment to promote fluid motion.

      Vertigo Sky Lounge is Chicago’s premiere year-round indoor/outdoor lounge. With the dramatic city skyline as a backdrop, Vertigo is the ideal place to mix it up after work or into the night. It features a dancing fire pit, lush modern furnishings, craft cocktails and happy hour menus. New this summer is the Bartender’s Booth, where patrons can sample craft cocktails and off-menu bites while engaging with their very own mixologist.

      Guests can also head to freestyle food + drink on site to sample American favorites with a global twist during breakfast, lunch, dinner, and happy hour. The restaurant also has a street-side patio for outdoor dining (as weather permits).

      very small room

      the location was great just 3 blocks from the main shopping street and lake, the bed was comfortable but the room was too small. i didin´t expect that at all. had a little trouble with the remote control and the towels but its an ok hotel overall. one night i felt sick and asked for aspirine and they didint have any, im used to an emergency kit or minimum aspirin at the reception. the hotel is good it just needs a little details to make it great. (exept for the room size)

      Business trip

      Nice, clean hotel with decent views. Had a corner king room, however the place was incredibly loud all night and could hardly fall asleep. Plus not sure if the air conditioner was working or not but the room was way too hot for my comfort. Nice bar downstairs for drinks but would probably not stay here again due to the noise.

      Great location & amazing shower

      The hotel location was wonderful, the room was very sleek and trendy, amazing,shower, average cleanliness, poor desk service but great curb side service. Great single cup coffee maker. Better than average but lacked service and it was not very clean for a newer hotel. Granted I am a CLEAN freak.

      Graduation trip

      Location and staff were excellent, and we loved our little balcony overlooking the city. However, the room was a bit small and lacked sufficient lighting. The ceiling was unfinished concrete, which detracted from the overall appearance, and the curtain between the room and bath along with shared closet/bath door was awkward.

      GREAT LOCATION

      We really loved the location of this hotel. Was the best part actually. The rooms are really tiny, but nicely appointed and have pretty much everything you need. (no dresser, in case you packed a lot of folded stuff) The major complaint in our room was lighting. It was SO dark you could barely see while getting ready. We had read reviews about not staying too close to roof top bar, so we didn't, and we had no problems at all with noise. Staff was friendly, especially concierge Tim. Lots of places close by to eat and a Trader Joes and other market right around the corner. They have these great rented bikes all around the city and there is a drop off/pick up right outside the hotel, Bonus! All in all we'd probably stay again.

      Meli Cafe for breakfast! SO yummy and really fabulous options. Great fresh juices as well. Potbelly's all over the city and they have inexpensive and tasty sandwiches and salads. RPM is a great place for dinner. Lots of great stuff to share.

      Great service!

      The staff were some of the nicest and most professional people I've met. The hotel was beautiful and in a good location. The only not so great part of my stay was the lack of privacy in the bathroom.

      Nice stay

      Had an enjoyable stay. Best part of hotel was helpful and friendly staff. They were spot on answering questions and with recommendations. Was upgraded upon arrival to large king room. Location was convenient. Only negative was sound of ambulance and fire engine sirens in middle of night, something the hotel has little control over.

      Cool place in a great part of the city. Vertigo makes for a great night out.

      Upscale, sheek room and vibe. Allot of fun at the roof top bar.
