Stayed in the Virgin during a recent business stay in Chicago. Conveniently located to downtown. Room was small, but clean. Great shower. Clean and comfortable. To be fair, I wasn’t there much! Typical all day work days followed by going out.

Stayed for a quick trip at the Virgin Hotel downtown Chicago. Great location and great hotel. Not pretentious. Very comfortable and "hip". Would stay again in a heart beat. Plenty of elevators so not waiting and the rooftop bar has amazing views.

I can’t say enough about every staff member going above and beyond on everything. The room was great, the food was excellent, location is close to everything, and the roof top lounge was awesome. 24hr room service was really nice and my wife and I recommend the chicken wings. I highly recommended staying at this hotel. Thank you very much Virgin… Read more

Great hotel. Staff is young but professional and mature. Always willing to help or give suggestions. Always greeted with a smile. Place is pet friendly also. Cool rooftop bar which is nice because some of the others in the city have a 45 minute wait in line for access. Nice to have that right at the hotel and no waiting. Nice styling also… Read more

I was impressed by the rate for such a nice hotel in Chicago- then blown away by the design and service. Such a great hotel with amazing rooftop and diner. We were there for a big guys weekend and loved how close it was to the bars, parks and architecture tour.
