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).

      expired almond.

      I ate a box of 2 month old almonds. Didn't ask for a comp let alone complain much. They gave me a free stay so while that was lovely, the hotel is definitely not best in class for the price. Spend your money wisely. My name is Haider and I stayed in a room on the 23rd floor that while comfortable was one of the most cramped hotel rooms I've ever stayed in.

      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.

      The hotel was a very nice and clean environment. They had great customer service. The beds were comfortable. We ordered room service and by the time it arrived it was cold and not appealing. Everything else was great.

      Great for young couples

      The hotel was appealing to a younger crowd complete with the lounge on the top floor. The restaurant and service was amazing. The only complaint was how thin the walls were, we could hear people showering next door.

      location location and some character

      the very first night I checked the hotel clerk was in the middle of a fight with a drunk guest. Awesome. My room was directly under a very popular night club/lounge so if you are not into noise and impromptu marriage proposals dont go. I loved the grit of it. Guests were loud, obnoxious and very good looking. If you want to know what the Chicagoan are like after hours definitely check this hotel out. Not for the faint of heart or delicate souls. All good things in my book. Different and stylish. Also, right smack in the middle of the magnificent mile. That helps a lot too.

      Stayed for the Chicago Marathon

      Nice quick and unremarkable stay. They were pretty busy but friendly. Nice location down in the loop. We would stay here again. Seemed to have more of an adult vibe.

      Birthday Gift to Myself: A Nice Getaway!

      Can't wait to come back. This trip was a birthday gift to myself. I'm from Milwaukee so the 1hr 45min drive to Chicago wasn't too long, but long enough to really make me feel as if I "got away". The hotel was beautiful. Although I did not get a chance to partake in any Spa treatment I can tell from the environment of this hotel, it would have been awesome. I checked out the club Vertigo before it got crowded. It was nice but I came just to chill and have some me time so I didn't "party". Which is the best thing about htis hotel in my opinion. You can turn up and be in the night life...or you can chill out and enjoy the ambiance!

      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.
