I can't rave enough about this place. Do you want to feel welcomed and cared for every moment of your stay, then you must choose Virgin Hotels. We absolutely loved our stay and cannot wait to come back. Everyone we met in the hotel was so kind and welcoming. Our chambers room was so comfy. We loved everything about this place.

I can't rave enough about this place. Do you want to feel welcomed and cared for every moment of your stay, then you must choose Virgin Hotels. We absolutely loved our stay and cannot wait to come back. Everyone we met in the hotel was so kind and welcoming. Our chambers room was so comfy. We loved everything about this place. It's a great location to downtown + river walk, and great dining. I cannot recommend this place enough. You won't be disappointed. We got lucky enough during our 5-day stay that our flight got cancelled so we extended 2 extra nights :) Read less

I'll start with a confession: my expectations were super high after my first stay. Great welcome again by staff at front desk. Room was oddly configured (you enter into the bathroom); quarters were tight with two cubbies where we put our roller bags but accessed with difficulty, as coats/clothes hung in same space. Lighted vanity and shower with… Read more

Room was oddly configured (you enter into the bathroom); quarters were tight with two cubbies where we put our roller bags but accessed with difficulty, as coats/clothes hung in same space. Lighted vanity and shower with dual heads were great. There was a bloodstain on the sleeve of the hotel robe -- gross. Love the fitness center. Read less

I booked the suite at Virgin for my wedding party to use to get ready for our big day and for my husband and I to stay in after. The space was perfect for a larger group of ladies all trying to prepare at the same time. Having a well lit vanity in the room was a selling point for me and we were not disappointed.

Staff was very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. We stayed over the marathon weekend and they were definitely very busy, but still made the effort to be as helpful as possible instead of rushing along. My husband and I loved our stay, we felt like our room was an apartment. The umbrella in the room was a great touch especially for the rainy… Read more

We stayed over the marathon weekend and they were definitely very busy, but still made the effort to be as helpful as possible instead of rushing along. My husband and I loved our stay, we felt like our room was an apartment. The umbrella in the room was a great touch especially for the rainy weekend. Great shower water pressure. Comfortable bed. We stopped at the restaurant for some happy hour appetizers which were really good. The attached coffee shop is very cute with creative drinks. Would definitely stay again! Read less

Great stay, super friendly staff. Came for into town for a Chicago Bears game. The hotel is in a great location, while be walking distance to many items that downtown Chicago has to offer. We will definitely stay here again.
