“Top notch hospitality and service at Vertigo Sky Lounge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

My fiancé and I had our engagement party at Vertigo Sky Lounge on 3/6/12. Vertigo is the elegant lounge/nightclub on the roof of the Dana Hotel.

We coordinated plans through Gino Bartucci. Gino and the entire staff at Vertigo made our party a huge success and absolutely flawless. We actually had guests calling us the next day saying how much fun they had (how often does that happen...?). The bartenders were fast and friendly. Food (appetizers) were great. Music and sound system was top notch. Crowd was sexy and sophisticated.

We did not stay at the actual hotel, but did walk through. Very elegant and modern. If the rest of the staff at the Dana Hotel is as superb as Gino and the Vertigo staff, I would highly recommend staying with them.

Wonderful staff and views from my interesting room at the far north end of the hotel. Finishes are a little worn on the furniture, but the room and bathroom were wonderfully designed and the bed was extremely comfortable. I thought the breakfast food was fine, but the service and the food were not nearly as good as some similar hotels nearby. I would go out for breakfast.

Room Tip: I would select "Serene King" vs. a "Comfy King" which was a bit small and which...

I stayed here for 3 nights in February 2012.

Location was perfect for us, 5 mins from the office, reception was fast and efficient, service good and the room was great. Good facilities, including Wifi.

The breakfast (which wasn't included, but a $10 discount) was excellent, great choice and quality food.

I'd stay here again.

I travel about 80% for work and have seen far too many hotels. dana has set a new standard and easily my favorite boutique hotel, Chicago or anywhere.

Fantastic location in one of downtown Chicago's best area. Easy access to the hotel by limo, cab, or CTA from the airports, and on-site valet if you're driving into town. Even easier access to all of Chicago's neighborhoods (Gold Coast, Lincoln Park, Loop, West Loop) once you're there. You really can't get more central than dana, and the immediate surroundings have some great accommodations within walking distance.

From Vertigo (rooftop bar) to aja (main floor restaurant) to the spa services and everything in between, the service was nothing short of perfect. Every employee we came across was attentive, courteous, and professionally -- yet somehow non-intrusive. Truly 5 star service.

The room was impeccable. From the gorgeous design to the attention to detail, I couldn't have asked for anything more. Chicago is a noisy city, but the moment we walked into the room, everything was quiet.

My husband recently booked a trip for a celebration with friends and booked the Dana. We go to Chicago on a regular basis and had never heard of the property. Actually have walked right by it on several occasions!

It was wonderful!

The Corner King Room (south facing is a must) was amazing -- floor to ceiling windows and a great view of State Street in the eve.

Beds were to die for, rain shower was great!

Weekend parking rate was $43 for the entire time.

Location, location, location!

Dana Hotel & Spa is a boutique hotel in the heart of Chicago in the River North area next to the Gold Coast. The hotel is situated near many attractions and only a block away from the Magnificent Mile shopping district and many restaurants. Modern & trendy decor perfect for couples or singles looking to have a great time. Families with young children would fare better elsewhere.

+ Corner suite spacious with separate living and sleeping areas. Perfect for entertaining.
+ Aja restaurant and lobby bar open all day. Decent breakfast & sushi, very nice prime beef sliders. Great cocktails and bar drinks. Better selection of wine and liquor than the rooftop bar.
+ If you enjoy hotels like the W, Hard Rock, as well as trendy non-chain boutique hotels you will feel right at home when visiting Dana Hotel and Spa.

- VERTIGO SKY LOUNGE is popular but also packed on Saturday nights. Focus is on bottle service with few liquor options (lobby bar is far superior for cocktails) Club bouncers take over elevators making it very difficult to get up to your room between the hours of 9PM-1AM. Hotel should allocate one of the three elevators for hotel guest use only.
- City noises can be heard even on high floors. Not a deal breaker but worth noting.
- Like most of Chicago the service is indifferent and quiet. Everything is available to you if you ask for it but very little is offered. Don't think this to be rude, there is a respectful distance and patience practiced in Chicago that can appear rude to those visiting from areas with more aggressive service cultures like NY or LA. Bell services, car services, concierge services and other amenities can be arranged so do not hesitate to ask.

TRANSPORTATION: Much of what you may want to see and do in Chicago is within walking distance. For attractions farther afield Dana Hotel is 2 blocks away from several public transit lines and cab rides rarely exceeded $10 when traveling to The Field Museum or restaurants that were farther away. Dana hotel doormen were always able to hail a cab for us within seconds, not minutes.

Room Tip: Corner suite worth the upgrade cost if you like to entertain friends in your room. Nice living room...

This hotel has a great location by Michigan Avenue and the rooms were very comfortable. Some street noise was a problem. And the set up with the shower is a little odd (there is a glass wall from the shower into the room)

Room Tip: The rooms on the corners have great floor to ceiling windows on two sides.
