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).

      Amazing!

      I had a fantastic time here. Amenities and cleanliness were just great, very comfortable bed and sexy shower. The ONLY downside of the hotel is that is was extremely difficult to get a cell phone signal inside the room. I had to stand on the balcony to find even a single 'bar' of signal. Perhaps has to do with the location or side of the building you are on.

      A Vacation Unto Itself!

      My wife and I stayed here to celebrate the long holiday weekend. We were able to get a corner room, which had floor to ceiling windows on the two street facing walls -- the windows make the room absolutely gorgeous. The bed is beyond comfortable, the shower is heavenly and each room has a flat screen t.v. and an iPod/iphone friendly $600 sound system. The concierege, [...], was terrific and most helpful. They honestly thought of everything when the made this place.

      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.

      The front desk staff was awesome and the rooms look great - can be a little loud but if you can put up with a little noise then its worth it!

      Hipster hotel at a great location

      The hotel had a lot of non-guest foot traffic, especially at night due to the lounge on the top floor. The front desk/concierge was located above the ground floor, which was a bit confusing at first. When you walk in it's a restaurant with no immediate indication that you're in a hotel, let alone the correct location. There was random yelling and revving of vehicles in the middle of the night on 2 nights of my 4 night stay. Otherwise, not a bad place.

      Luxury Spa Hotel At Reasonable Price

      We traveled in the middle of August and the trip was wonderful. The weather was perfect and we were able to walk all over downtown Chicago with ease. We visited all the major attractions (loved the Aquarium) and even made time for some of the neighborhoods north of downtown. We traveled mostly by foot, but it helped to take the train when we were traveling longer distances. I partook in the Spa services offered by the Dana Hotel and I was not disappointed in the least. Lastly, if you are looking for a quick bite, check out the hot dog and pizza joints in the neighborhood. You will not be disappointed.

      Great hotel Experience

      Alot of times when I go on vacation I look forward to getting back to my own bed and shower. However, my own shower and bed were not near as wonderful as at the Dana Hotel and Spa. They were both fantastic!!!

      Unique and fun hotel

      Very nice, trendy hotel with great in-room amenities including the sound system, Keurig coffee maker, free wireless, etc. Somewhat shocked by the clear glass shower visible to the bedroom! The King room was somewhat small. Service was very friendly and staff provided us with a complimentary meeting room and speaker phone on short notice, which was greatly appreciated. Good Asian restaurant on-site as well.
