Great location, so-so service

Would recommend Thu, Aug 7, 2014
Having just checked out of a neighboring 5* hotel and expecting similar service from Dana, we were slightly underwhelmed. There's nothing wrong per se with Dana, the staff are very helpful and cheerful, but they didn't stand out. Oh, the all glass shower and toilet do need some getting used to, but they are quite chic. Hopefully you and your room companion are not prudes! Our room was high enough that we didn't worry too much about drawing all the shades for privacy, but YMMV. Location is fantastic, we were able to walk nearly everywhere. Vertigo the lounge on the 26th floor was a letdown. Average drinks, no music, not a classy vibe. Maybe because it was a weekday? Top recos - Cantina Laredo for modern Mexican, Sable and Aviary for awesome cocktails, Lou Malnati's for deep dish pizza. Other restaurants didn't impress us, and we're not even foodies! Go to Dana for location and a very modern room vibe. Don't go if you're used to more traditional hotel rooms, or don't like see thru showers and rooms. Not for children!

Wonderful

Would recommend Sun, Aug 3, 2014
This hotel is in the perfect location! staff all extremely professional. We had an outdoor balcony which was a delight for an evening of city lights! Very comfortable beds ! the rooms were updated with the loft affect! Hardwood floors and concrete ceilings! Never heard any noise from other rooms or hallways! Will stay again ! Bathrooms very modern and all glass shower which was interesting! Ideal for a romantic getaway but might be a little different with kids in the room! You could see inside shower from bed!

Nightlife hint

The Redhead Piano Bar was a great place to go and sing songs and enjoy the great piano players! Quartinos resturant next to Redhead has great Italian food! All 1 block from Dana Hotel! Great great location!

Excellent room with new age accommodations. The view wasn't good. Overlooking construction not to romantic. Overall we really enjoyed the room.

Doesn't get any better!

Would recommend Tue, Jul 22, 2014
Absolutely fell in love with this hotel. Walking distance to everything. We stayed in a King Room with a balcony and it was so great to get fresh air. The room is nice and it was so hard to get out of bed everyday - soooo comfy! They have a cool rooftop bar and a good restaurant. I don't ever want to stay anywhere else when I visit Chicago.

Dining

Go across the street to Bijan's and order the Banana Bread Pudding. We went every night and got this dessert and even took one home. AMAZING!

Graduation trip

Would not recommend Wed, Jun 18, 2014
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 spot if you're looking for a party scene!

Would recommend Mon, Jun 16, 2014
The room, location, and cleanliness was great. The hotel seemed to be buzzing this weekend! Great party scene but very comfortable, clean, modern hotel as well.

Not of First Freshness Anymore

Would not recommend Thu, Jun 12, 2014
I have been to Dana Hotel and Spa now two times, once in 2009 (when it felt new and clean) and once now couple days ago 2014. The hotel feels worn, rough around the edges and like it is not getting a good cleaning. My room and bathroom did not feel fresh. Bathroom had obvious wall stains from previous users, tile base was falling off in couple places, window shades were ripped. It is an average hotel at this point, not a lot of wow factor left. On the third day, there was no hot water in the morning for 3 hrs. The front desk gave me a $25 gift certificate to use at their hotel restaurant and I did. But the hotel restaurant also had a problem with their registrar and had to explain to me couple times how their machine charges a different price for orange juice than it is actually worth and likes to combine drinks w/ food on the bill. Which was confusing. Overall I would look for another hotel with that little bit of something for the next time. Location was good, but the freshness is gone.

Time saver

Allow for plenty of time to get from the Hotel to the O'Hare Airport. The blue line has above 10 stops to get from the 'Loop' blue line stop to O'Hair airport and the train does not move very fast. Allow at least 45 min of direct travel on the train.
