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).

      Fun anniversary night!

      Stayed there to celebrate my anniversary, and we had such a great time. The hotel has everything you need. The room is wonderful with the perfect city skyline view. It was easy to just take an elevator up to the rooftop bar (it was winter so they had an ice bar) for cocktails and appetizers and then dinner in the lounge downstairs. The price was great for what you're getting. Will definitely be back.

      Fun couples night away

      The hotel is in the heart of downtown. We were able to walk to Michigan Ave, Rush Street and head west to other LaSalle Ave as well. The hotel itself is very hip with a fun club upstairs and a nice lobby and ground floor restaurant. Rooms are a bit small but the king sized bed is very nice. The odd glass shower wall to the bedroom with the curtain on the outside made for many games of peeking on the spouse but no one needs to be able to peek on them while on the can as well. The only negative were the rowdy other guests on the floor who had personal issues but we were compensated with $20 in breakfast vouchers THANKS!1

      Nice place

      Spent Thanksgiving weekend here and really enjoyed the hotel. Overall, pleasant experience. room was extremely clean. staff was very friendly. room size was a little smaller than expected, but great view regardless. Our room was on the 18th floor and we could not hear Vertigo on the top floor. The ceilings are not painted, so you see bare concrete walls (and small cracks), but it didn't really detract from the look of the room as a whole.
