Living in Northwest Indiana, it is wonderful to have the city of Chicago 30-45 minutes away. We have stayed in a lot of hotels in the city, and most of them have been excellent. I found out about the Dana Hotel and Spa from the travel and leasure magazine I was reading while I was getting my oil changed. I had an excellent stay. The room (a corner king) was fantastic. The floor to ceiling windows, really let you know you were in the city. They windows do have room darkening shades if you want to let them down. The bed was comfortable. The rainshower shower head in the bathroom, was great. We enjoyed breakfast at the hotel restaurant and the staff was excellent. We happened upon a great irish pub (Pippins) within walking distance and had a great time. I will return to the Dana the next time I need a weekend overnighter.
