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).

      GREAT HOTEL

      Stayed here while in town to run the marathon. Rooms are very comfortable. Internet worked great. Staff are all very accommodating and happy to help. Room service and food were very good. Great location. Loved the hotel and will stay here if ever in Chicago. There is a club on the top floor. We did not go and were never bothered by people or loud music. We were on the 6th floor of 25. The entrance for the club is separate from the hotel guest entrance.

      Nice views, unpretentious trendiness.

      The room was well laid out, and the B&W sound system was a nice touch. The rainfall shower city views were an unexpected bonus. From the 23rd floor I could hear the club on Friday night, but it didn't prevent me from getting to sleep. Staff was efficient.

      Fabulous Stay at The Dana

      The location of the Dana is exceptional. There are really fantastic restaurants within walking distance; literally, across the street and within a block or two. For added conveniences, you have a Whole Foods, 7-eleven, Blockbusters, and an Applebees, a stones throw away. The shops on Michigan Ave, 3 easy blocks. The staff at the hotel was extremely courteous - thank you "[...]" at the door, "[...]" with the bags from our entourage (2 adults, 2 wild kids), and "[...]", the concierge. The Aja Steakhouse... wonderful! The Lemon Grass martini - "magnificent". My compliments to the chef - loved the shrimp tempura maki and the sunomono salad (seawood, octupus, cucumber) was not only beautiful, but delish! They make their own soy sauce, and you'll notice the texture of the wasabi is somewhat different than other places - it's fresh; has a hint of sweetness and a well rounded finish of subtle "kick" that you can expect from wasabi. The Dana's rooms are adequate in size. Very nice ultra luxe decor. While my personal taste is more "old world" with varying hints of traditional, I found the contemporary design of the place both relaxing, luxurious and pleasing to the eye. The rooms use a mix of subtle hues of creams, naturals, grassy earth tones and soft berry. A textured wood floor greets you at the door, with clean line furniture. Floor to ceiling windows really open the room. (Just a note - the Dana is located across from another highrise comprised of offices and residences.) You literally can look directly in the eye of anyone that might be sitting at their desk.. so keep in mind, they can see you as well. No worries - there are not only nice light filtering shades, but also black-out shades behind them to give you full privacy when needed. The beds.. HEAVENLY. Nice flat screen - probably 42", and ipod/mp3 docking stations. The bathroom was adequate in size, quartz countertop and bowl sink. Loved the "Lather" bath and shower products. Walk-in shower with "rain" shower head, as well as detachable shower wand. Bathrobes and slippers too.There's an honor bar, with water, wine and soda. As well as chocolates and nuts from Mr Kites. The maids come in and turn down your beds in the evening and place chocolate dipped fortune cookies on your pillow. They also fill your ice container.The roof top lounge was nice.. offered stunning views of the skyline, great drinks (pricey .. but again.. Chicago.. hip.. happening... you MUST expect this) and a party atmosphere you would expect from a city such as this. Probably a little younger crowd... 20-mid 30's. While we felt comfortable, (we're 42 and 43) a round of drinks and a few turns of music on the mixing table is about all I could do. But if you like loud music, sexy drinks, short dresses (which I might add the cocktail girls wore these really short black "hot mama" shorts that many, even 20 somethings, couldn't pull off. These girls rocked it!) and "voyeur" type views of the Chicago skyline, the roof top lounge at the Dana might be on your list of faves for things to do while in Chicago. Overall, exceptional hotel, exceptional staff, and exceptional stay!

      Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

      If you plan on trying any of the famous pizzerias.. Gino's or Giordano's...be prepared for a really long wait... 1.5 hours of so for the evening. We did lunch, and were seated right away. Also - on the way out of the city - stop by Superdawgs on Milwaukee and Devon. The Superdawg (DO NOT Call it a hot dog..) is served with fries and standard dress of onions, relish, pickle, peppers, mustard and what I believe is a tomatillo .. looked like a green tomato but tasted like a pickle.. delish I might add. The only time I have seen a drive-in eatery that had to direct traffic in and out of the parking lot.. CRAZY!! But an experience we all enjoyed.

      "Great Hotel, Great Location"

      We were greeted by an excellent staff at the Dana Hotel. Everything was within walking distance. The room was wonderful except for the fact that it was kind of small and the balcony was a very small triangle with no seating on it. Overall, it was a great choice for us.

      Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

      The double-decker bus tour is excellent. We learned so much about Chicago and were able to get on and off at all the stops to see the attractions near that location. It will take you all around the city for only $30 each which is cheap compared to taxi fares. We also loved the architectural boat tour which was well woth the money. We bought the three day chicago go cards which were a mistake as it did not really give us our moneys worth because it took too long at each exhibit to see everything in 3 days. I would recommend the chicago pass instead as it does not have a time limit.
