Zen modern playpen with a bumping rooftop club, farm-to-table fare and blissed-out spa
Urban zen. The lobby mixes loftlike details—floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed concrete, sculptural metal-and-glass staircases—with natural textures such as a wavelike wall of wood. Cocoon-like microsuede armchairs curve around buttery leather ottomans and an orchid tops a check-in desk backed by a mosaic portrait of a tatted young woman.
Bed & Bath
Rooms have a youthful spirit, catering mostly to in-the-know urbanites who look for luxury in the details. Think bathrooms with all-natural lighting and Italian rainshowers, B&W Zeppelin sound equipment, Keurig coffeemakers and a wine chiller in every room. The loftlike vibe continues here with hardwood floors, platform beds dressed in white-on-white linens and a wall of windows.
The real zen heart of the hotel is the spa with its extensive menu of massages, hair and scalp treatments, male and female facials, mud rubs, body scrubs and more. When it’s time for dinner, freestyle food + drink serves seasonal dishes, focusing primarily on contemporary American fare like braised short ribs with parsnips and crispy Brussels sprouts, or grilled salmon with heirloom tomatoes. If all that food gives you added energy, you (and much of the rest of the city) can dance it off at the property’s year-round rooftop bar, the Vertigo Sky Lounge. The indoor/outdoor space is a favorite of Chicago’s party crowd with 26th-floor views.
In the Area
The Dana puts you smack-dab in the middle of Chicago’s food scene. Within walking distance or a quick cab ride: Rick Bayless’s Frontera Grill and Topolobampo; Carrie Nahabedian’s Naha; and Andrew Zimmerman’s Sepia. Don’t miss the laughs at the world famous Second City, where such luminaries as Dan Aykroyd, Steve Carell and Tina Fey have performed. The downtown Art Institute houses famous works like American Gothic by Grant Wood and Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks.
