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).

      Night club vibe with great staff

      I stay at the Dana Hotel frequently mainly because there is a Pure Barre across the street. The rooms have great views, comfy bedding, and mood lighting.

      Cool hotel / flashlight recommended

      I really love the location of this hotel - perfect for preferred lifestyle when on the road- Pure Barre across the street, Whole Foods and Starbucks down the block, and one block from Saks & Neimans. In terms of the hotel, I like the hip style of the hotel, the views are amazing, inexpensive wines are displayed on the wall art "mini bar", and the doormen are great - particularly Caesar. Now to nitpick... the check in process is not as quick as I would like, the phone service is non existent, and the lighting in the rooms is very dark resulting in several things I've left behind. Nonetheless, I will continue to patronize.

      Excellent business experience

      I was here on business for three days and had an excellent stay. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with researching local information and advising on the best ways to get around. The hotel has a great vibe and style. The room had a sleek design, bed was the ultimate in comfort, and the balcony is a nice bonus. Fitness room is small but has everything you need to get a good workout -- treadmills, bike, mat, dumbbells, and benches. I also visited the spa for an excellent massage with Clarice. The spa has a peaceful and calming atmosphere. The location is also great, in the midst of plenty of shopping, restaurants, public transportation options, etc. An all around fantastic hotel, and I plan to return when I'm next in Chicago.

      Not of First Freshness Anymore

      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-saving tip: Not Applicable

      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.

      North Loop Treat

      Stayed for 3 nights in a standard king room. My second stay at Dana Hotel, I again look forward to returning again and again. Located close to Michigan Ave yet tucked several blocks from the noise, Dana Hotel offers the perfect landing pad for rest yet is easy access to all the best the Chicago has to offer.
