I love this hotel. The rooms are amazing, and the location is perfect. I've stayed a couple of times and will definitely be staying next time I'm in Chicago. The gym is good, and the Vertigo Bar on the top floor is a great place to end a night.

The entrance is typical 'boutique' with the registration desk located one floor up/elevator or stairs away from the street entrance on State Street. The check-on host, Lindsey, couldn't have been more welcoming. We discussed a choice of two rooms and I selected the lower floor with the more dramatic view. I was not disappointed. I loved the towels and the bed linens. I would have liked the television to angle a little more to the bed for easier viewing, but I really saw all I needed to. I was there on business and didn't need the restaurants nearby, although, they were plentiful. I has a small mishap on the bottom of my foot where the wooden floor met the carpet ... but after a day, it was better. I would definitely stay there again. Their restaurant served a basic, but good breakfast ... which I enjoyed two of my four mornings there. Good coffee, great multigrain toast.

Dana hotel is very nice for the price. The location in the city just can't be better. When we arrived at the hotel we have been upgraded to a beautiful suite with a huge shower. The room was very nice but a little too dark for me- Question of taste. Bed was very comfortable and great mini bar. There was some little bad details like used table and floor and little things like that wich should be fixed but overall it was a very nice expérience and a very good hotel in the center of chicago

Have stayed in several Chicago Hotels over several years and the Dana was "top notch". Everyone was actually happy to have us as a customer and showed it with smiles and enthusiasm. Will definitely stay here again. On top of that, a great location and roof top bar!

Traveling to Chicago is one of my favorite business trips of the year and this year it was by far one of the best. Staying at the Dana Hotel was better than I expected! I walked into my room to be surprised the glass walls and incredible view of the city all lit up at night. The bed was luxurious and oh so comfy. The restaurant and room service menu food was delish! Needless to say that the staff and concierge were top notch.

The best part of my stay was my massage in the Spa. A definite must do!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room!

A chance to live in modern décor.

If you like lush carpet pile and an old English leather chair by a traditional fireplace then this is not for you. Instead modern décor, a fire pit on a roof bar!

The great news is that quality is maintained and the modern décor is very comfortable.

The staff are a little distant. The hotel is extremely well located for great bars and restaurants.

If you want to have a great and memorable stay in Chicago.

Room Tip: Request a corner room with two glass walls.

Visited this hotel in over the Memorial day weekend. This hotel was nice, the staff was friendly. Me and my companion stayed on one of the higher level floors near the elevator, which was an issue as because there was a lot of traffic by the area due to the hotel being busy and the night club is located on the top floor and it was very noisy. We could hear everything. In addition to the noise complaint the bathroom was odd, there was a walk in shower which kept clogging up and there was no door to the bathroom (talk about no privacy) Other than that the rooms were nice and the bed was comfortable.

Dear Sky5694,
We are very grateful that you choose the dana hotel and spa for your stay in Chicago. I am sorry you found it noisy we are testing out a few sound panel options with the assistance of an acoustical engineer and plan to have that rectified as soon as possible. I shared your review with your engineering team and asked them to investigate our drains on the top floors to resolve that promptly. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We would love to welcome you back the next time your travels bring you to Chicago.
Best regards,
Liana
