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 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.

      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.

      Nightmare Checking in

      I checked in and they had no record of my stay. They called around on radios and 25 minutes later someone found a fax somewhere with my confirmation. Then they manually typed my reservation in and 40 minutes later I was checked into the room I booked. I was told by the front desk staff to contact them directly next time and pay the standard fare and I wouldnt have to wait.... really?

      Best Kept secret in Chicago

      The Dana hotel is located right in the heart of everything....easy transit via subway or the bus. The Spa offers unlimited use of the Steam Room as well as the finest staff of therapists. I have been to Vegas and other health facilities, this staff is truly dedicated and professional

      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.

      Loved it!

      We loved the style of this fabulous boutique hotel. And, the location was excellent - just a couple blocks from Michigan Ave, and right in the center of a ton of shopping, restaurants, and museums. Will definitely stay here again.

      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.
