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).

      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.

      Decent get away

      This was for a last minute baby moon ... The room (a corner king) was beautiful however one of the phones did not work, and the TV also did not work. The repair person for the TV complained how the TVs never work and apologized for the cheapness. The best part of the room was the shower, I took 3 30+ minute showers, and it came with a chair which is perfect for me. The bed was also unbelievably comfortable.

      Nice weekend stay

      Hotel and spa were both good. Cozy king was a little small, balcony didn't let in much light. Still a pleasant stay.

      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.

      Weekend in Chicago

      The hotel is downtown so you have easy access to all of the attractions. The view is awesome if you select a corner view room. We arrived very early on a saturday morning after an 8 hour drive. The night auditor was very helpful in getting us up to our room and settled, considering the drive we had just made. We switched to our corner view room, with a beautiful view of chicago, unfortunatley we discovered a leaking toilet that night and were moved to a room directly underneath the hotels club at 1am. The next day the manager moved us to a suite to make up for the mishap, A gorgeous room. Overall without the mishaps it was a great stay, the hotel staff were always willing to help and offer suggestions, and we were a few blocks from most things. The softest bed I have ever slept in, a refresing treat after a day of walking around chicago.

      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.

      Great anniversary location!

      The Dana hotel location was great for everything we did; sight seeing, eating, Cubs vs Cards game. The staff were all helpful and polite. We got an upgraded room because of a tv issue. The first room was nice with a balcony but the second room had 2 walls of windows with city views. Awesome!!! We ate breakfast both mornings at AJA and it was great both times. A little mold in the shower was the only down side. We plan to go back to Chicago and to stay at the Dana!!

      Uno's pizza isn't like the Uno's at home. This is the original and definitely worth the wait. Dave Burke's Primehouse was good but very noisey. We'll try a different steak house on our next visit.

      it is very nice place.

      It is very good place to stay with my wife. Since it is near to the Michigan Ave, you can walk to anywhere including tower, park. Also, the hotel people are very kind.
