Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.

A quick business trip and Virgin Hotels was perfect! The room is laid out so well with great technology incorporated through TV and lighting. I love the lighted makeup vanity and the closet lights. Little details made it so unique, including the old gym bench and punching bag

Fantastic hotel, fantastic location, fantastic staff. Has an awesome breakfast cafe to boot. Mini bar at street prices. You could spend the day in the hotel only. Once you enter the room, you realize Virgin is changing the orthodox hotel rooms. Very intuitive decor. Simple, easy

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our three nights at the Virgin Hotels. The location was great for many of the downtown Chicago sights. The staff was friendly and the room (especially the bed, pillows, and shower) was extremely comfortable.

Stayed in room 612. View was looking into a hotel room across an alley. Didn’t like the fancy coffee pot. Too much hassle for a cup of coffee. Price and location were both good for our needs (we were attending a show at the Chicago Theater)

Morning DonnoReese65, I wanted to reach out to you again in order to speak to you so you can voice any frustrations rather than typing them. We do not accept staff looking or acting unprofessional and it seems this happened twice while visiting us in August. I was able to identity those staff members you spoke of and I addressed it on our end. I sent you a direct message on August 13, 2018 at 12:39pm but got no response until now. Since you used this alias we weren't able to research any contact information besides the direct messaging through Trip Advisor. We do appreciate all good and bad feedback and I apologize again if my first response frustrated you. That was the last thing I wanted to happen. Please reply to this message or through my work contact info listed on the message I sent. This response will not allow my email address to be added. I eagerly await your response and hope you have a great day! Brian Adams Director of Experience o 312 940 4691 m 312 937 3641 a 203 N. Wabash Avenue | Chicago | IL 60601
