We did an event on the 25th floor. Junito and Lowri took excellent care of us. We had live performances (socially distanced of course) and needed the assistance of Marshall as well. The event was successful and could not have been done without their help. If you are looking for a place where you will feel safe during this pandemic and be able to… Read more

For a stay from Friday to Saturday we decided to stay at the Virign Hotel in Chicago. The location of this Hotel is perfect - in the middle of Downtown, only 5 minutes per feet away from the Chicago River. The parking arangment / offer by the hotel allows you to park for 25 $ per 24 h, which is amazing. Very friendly greeting by the staff (Top… Read more
For a stay from Friday to Saturday we decided to stay at the Virign Hotel in Chicago. The location of this Hotel is perfect - in the middle of Downtown, only 5 minutes per feet away from the Chicago River. The parking arangment / offer by the hotel allows you to park for 25 $ per 24 h, which is amazing. Very friendly greeting by the staff (Top Job Andrew!) and we had the luck to book a Junior Suite. This two room arrangement with plenty of space, great couch, and amazing bathroom with a very spacy Shower was so perfect for the stay. Great City View from the windows - just remember: The neighbours can watch back - so better close the blinds. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The bed was very comfy and good to sleep, even for my taste the mattress was a little to much on the soft side. Everywhere in the hotel are little design goodies to explore. From the Vespa Chair in our room, to the porcelain bulldogs in the corridors to the entry of the rooftop bar. Very well designed overall. Only little negative point: while the AC in the public areas were amazing, did the AC in the Suite had some problems to chill down the late summer heat. Obvious Tip: visit the rooftop bar and have a great cocktail with an amazing view into the hear of Chicago. And the staff will be amazing too. Till now: the best hotel i found in downtown Read less

Everything about our wedding weekend at the Virgin was absolutely perfect, from the tour we did with the fabulous Junito the summer before to the after party at the rooftop bar on the big day. Anything you could want or need in downtown Chicago, including our ceremony and reception venue, were walkable which made it ideal for our out of town guests. Literally everyone, from our college friends to my mom's septugenarian friends LOVED their rooms and the vibe of the whole hotel. Some version of "You guys picked the perfect hotel for all of us" and "The staff are absolutely wonderful" was said over and over. Read less

So I came up on a Saturday it was a nice little vibe, I was waiting for a friend and my server came over and introduced herself as Claudia and automatically made me feel super comfortable and welcome. I ordered the Mango Marg and it was a good basic drink packing a punch with the little spiced rim and the chicken sandwich to start. When my friend finally arrived Claudia did such a wonderful job she’s super attentive and friendly even when it started to get a bit crowded we ended up such an amazing time can’t wait to visit this beautiful city and great rooftop again.
