I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at this hotel, checked in and opened the door to my room. The hotel is very modern and has the feeling of a very personal touch. The fully stocked fridge and full shower are just two amenities that make you feel right at home. The rooftop bar is amazing and the second floor bar and restaurant is also nice,… Read more
I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at this hotel, checked in and opened the door to my room. The hotel is very modern and has the feeling of a very personal touch. The fully stocked fridge and full shower are just two amenities that make you feel right at home. The rooftop bar is amazing and the second floor bar and restaurant is also nice, but I must admit that I was not impressed with the food. At any rate, I will definitely be back, but will have dinner elsewhere next time. I strongly recommend you give this hotel a try! Read less

We stayed here on a sports package, 12th floor so above most of the street noise and with many runners there weren’t too many late night parties - the walls aren’t that thick between rooms! Rooms were well designed and compact but spacious considering their size. Nice touches in the room with decorations and a decent sized safe too. Gym could do… Read more

Rooms were well designed and compact but spacious considering their size. Nice touches in the room with decorations and a decent sized safe too. Gym could do with a few more bikes. Location was perfect for the marathon and for visiting the city with a short walk to the river and a public transport stop opposite. We really enjoyed the city and would come back. Read less

Love, love, LOVE the Virgin hotel in Chicago. Have had multiple events there, and now my boyfriend's birthday. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, even though this was just a staycation. Thank you Virgin Hotel!

Wonderfully located hotel for a first time visitor to Chicago. We managed to walk to everything we wanted to see. The room was nice and well thought through, nice little touches. The decor is ‘odd’ in places but generally well done. The attached bars on the ground and top floors were very raucous on a Saturday night. We stayed on the 5th floor… Read more

The decor is ‘odd’ in places but generally well done. The attached bars on the ground and top floors were very raucous on a Saturday night. We stayed on the 5th floor and could hear everything from floor 25 in our room, met someone in the lift staying on floor 23 who said it was unbearable in his room! That was just one night though, generally the walls are pretty thin, we heard lots of ‘goings-on’ bring earplugs!! Read less
