I love Chicago! The city has amazing food, a great nightlife and an endless list of things to do and see. What better place to celebrate my birthday with family and friends?
A few minutes into my lodging hunt I stumbled across The Dana Hotel & Spa and knew immediately that my search was over. It's located in the heart of downtown with a rooftop, has an award winning restaurant and is just a few blocks away from everything you could ever want — shopping, The Magnificent Mile, art galleries, amazing restaurants and a nightlife. I couldn’t wait to check in, have a glass of wine and see the sights (and let’s be honest, probably visit the spa immediately). I was sold.
Upon arrival, a warm and friendly staff checked us in and kicked off a series of amazing hotel discoveries—each seeming to top the last—that culminated into an unforgettable weekend. We got to the room and were blown away. The views were spectacular, we had a stocked fridge (with wine and champs!), an unbelievably sexy shower with a rain shower head, and possibly the coziest slippers I’ve ever put on my feet. This was the perfect place to relax and pretend I might make use of the yoga mat before my stay was over.
After a quick rest we visited the rooftop bar, Apogee. The views and the vibe here were more than we could have asked for. It's so laid back and effortlessly chic. The menu was almost daunting it had so many unique options I’d never even imagined before but we certainly persevered. Pro-tip: The Mr. Nice Guy is a must try!
Whether you're visiting Chicago or are a local looking for a night out - the Dana Hotel and Apogee are a do not miss. After all, who doesn't want to say you've been to one of the best rooftop bars in Chicago.
