“Lovely Boutique hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2008

The hotel is quietly tucked on a corner in a great location. Cab drivers had a hard time finding it, you won't find a lit marquee or a porte-cochere but a doorman will happily hold the door for you and make sure your bags get to your room. the restaurant is on the ground floor and depending on how you go up one floor you may be a litte confused. The reception desk is just a desk wih a couple of monitors and phones on it. It is different but it works.

We had a corner room, 2 walls were floor to ceiling windows, there were black out shades and sheer shades available. In the bathroom, the level of privacy is entirely up to the person left in the room....the shower stall has a glass wall that looks into the bedroom and on to the toilet....there is a curtain but it is on the room side. Enough said.

The room had a large plasma tv and speaker system for the ipod as well as free internet. the bedding was very comfortable, down pillows overall very nice.

The continental breakfast offered bagels, cereal, coffee, juice and fresh fruit.

Only drawback were the sirens, there is a firehouse or hospital nearby and they were very active through the night when we were there. I do believe we would go back again.

I had a wonderful stay at the Dana Hotel. I can't speak to the size of the standard rooms because I received a complimentary upgrade to a suite upon our arrival. However, I think I would have enjoyed the hotel (almost) as much if I hadn't. The location of the hotel was excellent. Additionally, as a wine lover, the selections offered in the mini bar were the best that I have ever experienced. The staff was very nice and friendly and the complementary breakfast was a great extra.

We stayed at the Dana for 3 nights Oct. 24th - 27th and found it to be an excellent location as well as a fun and friendly place to stay. We booked the Fall Dining Package for 1 night and it was a great deal. Dinner in AjaSteak was very good and we enjoyed the atmosphere. It also included "breakfast in bed" which was very enjoyable. We also had the opportunity to see 3 different rooms and must admit - they were all great. The corner room with 2 "walls" of ceiling to floor windows was amazing although we did not stay in it. We had a suite with one of the best showers (for 2) that we have seen in a hotel in this price range. The room was very comfortable and we loved it. The other nice advantage is that the wines (full bottles) and snacks in the room are very reasonably priced which is a nice switch from other hotels. We also loved the contemporary look of the hotel while still having a warm and inviting feel.
We had drinks upstairs at Vertigo the rooftop bar. Our experience on a Sat. night was that they had a seperate entrance outside for non-guests and people were lined up to get in but they did not come inside the hotel to get there. When we returned to the hotel in the evening there was someone standing by the elevators checking to make sure we were hotel guests before we could go in so we did not have any issues going back to our room.
All the employees were very pleasant and we have already recommended this hotel to others.

  • Liked — Location & Contemporary design
  • Disliked — Wireless internet connection while offered no charge did not work well in the room.

I was looking for a place to do interviews in downtown Chicago and stumbled upon the Dana on the internet. I booked it because of the price, location, and thought that it might be more interesting than the major chains where I usually stay. I was right. My avg. per night price was approx. $210.

It's a boutique hotel, very hip, with a friendly staff who was there to help but was not intrusive or overly cheery. My room was on the 22nd floor on the corner, with a great view down State St. and the Chicago theater. The living room part had two walls of floor to ceiling windows, a flat screen tv in the corner, and a fully stocked wine/beverage fridge. As a lover of wine I really appreciated this! They also had teas, coffees and some terrific little snacks, all at reasonable prices.

The bedroom was separated from the living space by sliding Japanese type doors. The bed was really comfortable, and the bathroom was wonderful. One wall of the shower is glass so if you are there with your honey you could have some fun :-). The rain shower head was amazing after a long flight to the city, and the toiletries were top notch.

If you can, try the restaurant. I had the lettuce wedge salad and sea bass entree. Both were great. And the bistro across the street is handy and has terrific ambiance and food.

All in all would recommend to anyone except those turned off by ultra-modern decor. I'll definitely stay again when in the area!

  • Liked — Just about everything
  • Disliked — I didn't have enough time to enjoy the spa!
