Top choice hotel in The Loop

Billionaire Richard Branson transformed the 27-story, art deco Dearborn Bank Building into the first outpost of his cheeky new hotel chain. The airy, suite-like rooms have speedy free wi-fi, low-cost minibar items and a bed that doubles as a work desk. An app controls electronics including thermostat and TV. Guests receive earplugs, handy for dulling noise from nearby L trains.

Quick description

Steps away from the iconic shopping, dining and entertainment of Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile, this downtown Chicago boutique hotel puts a spin on modern luxury and comfort, offering 5 on-site restaurants, a rooftop bar and nightclub and expansive meeting and social spaces. Each lifestyle-focused room at Virgin Hotels Chicago is designed with focus and relaxation in mind, offering a large dressing room area separated from the bedroom by sliding door panels. The dressing area features a closet with ample shelving and storage space, a well-lit make-up desk and a luxury walk-in shower with a rainfall shower head. An ergonomic bed and a 42-inch flat-screen LG Smart TV are provided in the bedroom area. Panoramic views of the iconic city skyline surround the outdoor rooftop bar and nightclub. The Commons Club combines craft cocktails and small plates for guests to enjoy throughout the day. A premium coffee and wine bar is also available at the hotel. Guests can get a laugh while reading any of the unique, whimsical books from the hotel library or relax near a fire on cozy furniture in the Trophy Room. Millennium Park is a 12-minute walk away from the hotel. Navy Pier is a 7-minute drive away.
