Sleek and modern, the Dana Hotel and Spa has the feel of a hip, downtown loft where even the most utilitarian elements have an artsy twist. 

The rooms feature hardwood floors and exposed concrete ceilings as well as spa-inspired bathrooms with rainfall showers; the floor-to-ceiling windows incorporate an impressive amount of natural light and even more impressive city views. Rooms also include a nice selection of reasonably priced bottles of wine, Keurig coffee makers, complimentary Wi-Fi and super comfortable beds. 

Apogee, located on the 26th floor, serves "the most fun cocktails in Chicago right now" (Chicago Tribune) and is one of the few year-round rooftop lounges in Chicago with a blazing fire pit on the outdoor terrace during winter (open Thursday-Sunday). On the ground floor, the new Portsmith restaurant focuses on seafood, while the nearby Leviathan lobby bar serves cocktails inspired by the ocean.

The on-site spa is one of the best luxury spas in Chicago according to Forbes Travel Guide and is ranked No. 4 on Time Out Chicago's list of best spa hotels in Chicago, though it is on the smaller side, with just two treatment rooms. All guests have access to the hotel’s fitness center, which features surprisingly good views of State Street to observe while working out.

When checking out, the front desk clerk tried to charge me double what the Travelzoo price I booked at was. I had to show lots of documentation and was basically told I didn't read the price the right way before finally she admitted that they didn't receive the details they needed from Travelzoo to key in the right price. It was corrected, but was a somewhat frustrating end to the trip.

The overall style and ambiance of the place was fun; good access to shopping and restaurants. The staff was very personable.

One thing we found... complicated... about the space was how the entry was configured. Entering the hotel actually put you at the hostess stand for the restaurant. This wouldn't be an issue except, that space was perhaps a 6'x10' area, and it was used for 1. people getting coffee and donuts to go, 2. grabbing the (only) elevator up to registration, 3. talking to the hostess about a table, 4. stairs for people entering/leaving, 5. leaving bags with the valets, 6. getting bags from the valets... it was quite a mess, very awkward, and at one point it was so crammed with people doing all these things that no one could actually get to the stairs or elevator. Let's just say it was an inauspicious start to a stay; we were very concerned the chaos would carry through our visit (thankfully the rest of the hotel was very nice).

The spa facilities are great. Hotel guests can use the saunas, steam rooms, killer showers etc. Restaurants in the area are fantastic--many within 2 blocks.
