Property Description

We're here to wake up this industry and bring back the fun. As we always do. We've reimagined not only what a boutique hotel can look like, but what it can do. Combined with Virgin's unrelenting dedication to the consumer we're ushering in a new standard for hospitality and heartfelt service. And we're just getting started.Virgin Hotels Chicago is located in the historic Old Dearborn Bank Building in Chicago's Loop, just minutes from the Magnificent Mile and Millenium Park. We focused on how hotel rooms and suites work, not just how they look. And ours work twice as hard – creating 2 lifestyle-focused rooms in 1: The Dressing Room and a Sleeping Lounge – separated by a sliding set of privacy doors, complete with a second peep hole offering the perfect suite for your Chicago stay.Calling them suites is like calling the Space Shuttle an airplane. Our groundbreaking Chamber design combines the hallway, closet, and bathroom into one luxurious Dressing Room area, while Privacy Doors close to create a personal Sleeping Lounge, ideal for working, recharging, and playing. Everything you would normally expect in a suite is here, plus a few surprises.When it comes to Chicago event venues, we're bringing fresh ideas to the table so you can too. Spark your guest's interest with Ping-Pong meeting tables, fitness video games, hallway mini golf and life-sized Jenga. Our cozy common lounge areas, catered events and three dynamic meeting spaces customize to you, fitting every occasion, every time.We have 3 flexible spaces.The Manor, an idea space for a meeting of the minds or a large social gathering.The Sandbox, a brilliantly intimate space for meeting with colleagues or socializing among peers.Founder's Room, bring your 12 founding members in for a collaborative meeting or elegant dinner around a stately table of ideas and indulgence.The Commons Club, our downtown Chicago lounge for work and play. Flirt with a menu of culinary delights, craft cocktails and endless conversation. Lounge. Work. Play. Cerise, a downtown Chicago rooftop bar and nightclub. Slip outside and find yourself in the heart of Chicago's historic Loop. Set a rendezvous inside and experience a whole new world of eclectic and savory satisfaction that runs all through the night.A landmark Chicago diner, Miss Ricky's is modern casual dining with a warm and welcoming flair. This downtown Chicago diner combines comfort food with a delightfully playful approach.
