The hotel is promoted as a boutique hotel, which creates a certain expectation of design standard. Overall, the design was ok - the hotel common areas seemed like they could use a refresh, and the condition of the rooms was pretty average. The choice of decor colours seemed a bit dated - oranges and peach tones - and apolyester curtain... More

Unique property with a great view from the fitness center. Friendly staff, clean hotel. Good location to explore the city. I would suggest asking for a room away from the elevators as we did hear noise from the guests going to and from the club.

Next time you are looking for a great place to stay in Chi-town, look no further and book the Dana. It's an ideal location with an amazing staff. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The rooftop bar is the coolest with firepits which makes it so cozy with incredible view. The rooms are very art deco with a slight industrial... More

Hi 127laurac127, We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay! When we built the hotel in 2008, we really tried to use a lot of natural elements and re-purposed materials in our design, thank you for your appreciation. Come back soon to experience the spa :) More

Location is perfect, just a couple of blocks from Michigan Avenue. Rooms are a decent size, and very clean. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, especially the doormen. Highly recommend this hotel.

Great Location, easy to get around... cute and trendy with nice rooftop bar and ground floor restaurant. The doorman with the dreadlocks is FANTASTIC! Never caught his name, super cordial and great recommendations. Also loved the concierge, Tim... helped get show tickets and restaurant suggestions, hair blow out and other recommendations. Fun place, would stay again. Corner Suite was nice... More

We stayed here in January I have taken some time before writing this. We were in a Tranquil Suite. It was ok. I have stayed at several hotels downtown and the room was ok. I felt like we were in an office with a bedroom. It is VERY modern and has a lot of concrete. The check in is different... More

Stayed for a three night kid free getaway. My number one priority in a hotel is cleanliness and a feeling of freshness, the Dana surpassed my expectations. The design and use of solid surfaces that inherently stand up to wear and tear were perfect choices. The only noticeable wear in the room was on the edges of the black out... More

We loved the design of the hotel, very cool and a bit rustic. We had a corner king room- loved the tall windows looking out to State street. Even though some folks mentioned the weird shower because it lacks privacy as it is glassed in and you can see thru bedroom- my husband and I found it rather sexy! Friendliest... More
