This very clean hotel has a hip feel to it, but remains quiet. The location makes it convenient to walk to many loop/near north stores and restaurants. The el is only 3 blocks in either direction to take you further away. The staff was very helpful when service was requested and there is free wifi. We got our room on Expedia for a very good price. There is a Whole Foods around the corner so you don't have to pay a typical hotel price for breakfast, although the breakfast was pretty good.

This was my second stay at the Dana Hotel and Spa and as usual, the hotel did not disappoint. My friends and I arrived at the hotel a few hours before check-in and the front desk had a room ready for us. All of the staff were friendly and attentive. The room was bright and spacious. We were given complimentary breakfast vouchers and we were surprised at the quality and quantity of food on the breakfast menu. I recommend taking advantage of the breakfast offerings at the hotel. The design is typical of a modern, boutique style hotel. I realize that some reviewers were put off by the design of the bathroom and some of the weekend noise at the hotel; however, these were non-issues for me personally. The location of the Dana can't really be beat. Just a couple of blocks from the Magnificent Mile, the hotel is surrounded by excellent shopping and dining. I highly recommend this hotel and will certainly return on my next trip to Chicago.

Room Tip: If you are worried about noise from the nightclub on the rooftop ask for a room on floors 20 or belo...

My wife and I stayed here as a part of her birthday weekend in Chicago. We were put into a fifth floor room with a view to die for! The room had floor to ceiling windows that looked right down State St. The hotel is in the middle of it all, including a short walk to Michigan Ave and the Magnificent Mile. There is cocktail lounge located on the roof of the hotel which provides amazing views of the Chicago skyline, even in Februaury! The service was great and the staff seemed very attentive to the needs of the guests. The bathrooms are modern with a HUGE walk in shower that has an optional privacy curtain, meaning there is a see-through wall of glass betweeen the shower and the bedroom. Oh, and it is important to note that the floor to ceiling windows do have room darkening blinds for comfort and privacy. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely go back!

This hotel has an Amazing View... the Rooftop Bar is so cool and is open all year! I had the opportunity to stay at the Dana on a business trip to Chicago and it was one of the most interesting hotels I had ever experienced. Although it was one of the more expensive hotels in the area the floor to ceiling windows and the view from my room more than made up for it. If you stay at the Dana request a corner room... the view is great, the north side of the hotels view is better in my opinion.

The breakfast was great and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: As for a corner room!

If you happen to be in Chicago this is the place to experience. We were here for business and didn't know much about the hotel and wow, were we in for a surprise. Location was wonderful. The event we attended was on held on the rooftop and all of us were blown away by the skyline. Check out the photos on the website. The hotel looks exactly like the photos plus 10 times better.

Service is beyond belief. Experience it.

The floor to ceiling windows give you unparalled views of the beautiful city of Chicago. The Hotel Dana rooms are modern, and beautifully equipped, with the most reasonably priced mini bar and snacks I have ever seen at a hotel! What a concept! The staff in the bars and restaurants were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent. I can not say enough about the fine,hip,urban oasis this hotel has created. The roof top bar with patio again provided amazing views and excellent service. Stay here! Stay here!
