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).

      expired almond.

      I ate a box of 2 month old almonds. Didn't ask for a comp let alone complain much. They gave me a free stay so while that was lovely, the hotel is definitely not best in class for the price. Spend your money wisely. My name is Haider and I stayed in a room on the 23rd floor that while comfortable was one of the most cramped hotel rooms I've ever stayed in.

      Chicago get-a-away

      The concept of being a "Boutique hotel" was exemplified to the max. The decor was sleak and stylish but the rooms were quite displeasing. The rooms were small with unfinished concrete ceilings, which unfortunately were complemented by a strange repugnant odor that emitted from the concrete every time the A/C turned off. In addition, climate control inside the room was by far the worse I've ever experienced. I would not recommend hotel and I would certainly never revisit.

      Excellent deal at the Dana Hotel

      We got an incredible deal at this hotel for 3 nights in January, and based on that we would book again. The location is excellent. The room was above average, but not spectacular. Lots of windows, but not really any good view in our room. I hated the shower - had great potential but with the half-glass door none of the heat stays in and its too cold to enjoy it. The bathroom was nice and big though and it did have a rain shower.

      The staff make the hotel

      The hotel is chic, fun and in a great location, the seemingly best of all worlds. We were on the 25th floor, the gorgeous top, with a stunning view--perfect! Until we realized Vertigo Sky Bar was on floor 26... and the bass was impecably loud. Luckily that was masked by the unbearably deafening roar of our air conditioning unit. When coupled with the noxious natural gas smell that only seeped out of the AC unit at 3 am every night, the room became unliveable. Yes, the bed was comfortable and the rain shower was glorious, but that gets completely overshadowed by the aformentioned failings. As for room service, the girl who took our order and served us was fantastically sweet. The menu, however, was lacking at best. Sure, fanciful options paired to be at the forefront of the food scene do make the menu standout. But when you want a meal to just be something familiar and kind to your stomach, this does not suffice. Plus the limited options did not help much. Honestly, the best part of our stay was the service. The front desk and concierge were both extremely helpful, prompt and caring. Anything we asked was answered properly and with a genuine smile. Though billing issues did arise (we were charged for parking though never had a car), the staff responded positively and removed the unfounded charges. We greatly appreciated everything they did... too bad someone wasn't an AC repairman too!

      Dana in Chicago

      Should appeal to younger, non-traditional crowd. Nicely appointed rooms, but small. Somewhat noisy. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great deal through [...]. Not a four star hotel, but a good quality place.

      Modern & Nice, but avoid the top floors

      We stayed at the hotel for several days. There were good things and bad things about the experience, but due to noise I will not be returning. Good first: The hotel staff were friendly and the concierge was extremely helpful with travel hints and general recommendations on visiting attractions. The room was nice and had a small balcony with a great review overlooking the city. The bathrooms were a little odd; curtain on the outside of the shower, which had clear glass doors. The bathroom door was on top rollers, and did not lock or even close completely. Not a big deal, but a little strange. However, the noise at night was unacceptable. There is a bar on the top floor of the hotel, and on every night that weekend we could hear the music through the floor of our room. There was another room on top of ours, so I can't imagine how loud it must have been in that room. Unless you plan on staying up until 3am every night, or are guaranteed a lower-level floor, I would recommend finding another hotel. There are plenty of options in Chicago.

      Okay but street noise

      The hotel is located in the downtown area. There seem to be sirens sounding off every half and hour to forty-five mintues. I was on the Twenty-thrid floor. I ask about it they say that is normal. If you are looking for quite this is not the place. It woke me up at least three times my first night there. I only went for a wedding and that was the hotel recommended for the guest.

      would be great except for the noise

      The location is very central. Close to shopping and not far from the museums. Although the room was lovely, the lack of soundproofing is a problrm. I would not stay in this hotel again.
