Travelled in early August with other family members for the first time to Chicago. Chicago is a beautiful city and Virgin Hotel, where we stayed for four nights, was just perfect for our visit. Location was convenient to walk everywhere. Rooms were modern and clean. Loved the hardwood floors in the bedroom and simplicity of the room. Most of all, the guys that work at the front desk, both during the day and at night, were awesome. They were friendly, courteous and helpful. Although there were lots of people in and out of the hotel going to the club on the 26th floor, we never felt threatened or unsafe by those guests. The staff did a good job of checking security and controlling the guests to the Club. We were never disturbed by the loud music, which was a concern when we checked in.
This hotel feels like a small boutique hotel and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay in the City of Chicago. We stayed in a Grand Room King and it was very spacious with a large shower stall and separate toilet, which we loved. Our other family members stayed in a Chamber King Room and they thought it was a bit small, but comfortable. This is the one thing I would note you should be aware of so that you can choose the right size room for your comfort.
There is a cafe as well as a restaurant on the street level of this hotel, so easy to get a coffee and croissant or a full meal.
My husband and I loved everything about Chicago and plan to visit again and again and I expect that our hotel of choice will continue to be the Virgin Hotel Chicago.
