Virgin Hotels is here to wake up this industry and bring back the fun. They’ve reimagined not only what a boutique hotel can look like, but what it can do. Combined with their unrelenting dedication to the consumer, they’ve ushered in a new standard for hospitality and heartfelt service among the Chicago Loop hotels.
Located in the heart of Chicago’s Loop district in the historic Old Dearborn Bank Building at 203 N. Wabash Ave, Virgin’s 26-story Art Deco building is a Chicago landmark and offers 250 guest rooms, including 40 one-bedroom suites and two penthouse suites.
At the heart of Virgin Hotels Chicago is Commons Club, a dynamic space where guests can dine, drink, work and mingle. The vibe is one of a private members club, without the fees, where guests and locals alike are welcome.
The hotel also features four additional dining options, including Miss Ricky’s, an all-American diner open for breakfast and lunch; Cerise, a rooftop bar and lounge; Two Zero Three, a coffee shop by day and a wine bar by night; and Upstairs, located on the 25th floor, an intimate live entertainment venue with gorgeous outdoor patio perfect for a private dinner or a breath of fresh air.
Virgin Hotels Chicago features the signature two-room “chamber” layout with small touches that make traveling for business or leisure an easier experience. All guest chambers are divided into two spaces by wooden sliding doors complete with a peephole. The dressing room includes a full vanity, illuminated desk and mirror, an extra-large shower with a bench, and his and hers closets. Past the privacy door, guests enter the lounge, complete with a red SMEG mini-fridge, HD Smart TV, and the brand’s patent pending, ergonomically designed Lounge Bed – the ideal space to work, sleep, and play.
