Rooms for the contemporary traveler
Located in the Chicago Loop, the hotel’s lifestyle-focused rooms are designed to have separate areas for sleeping and living. As the website states, “Calling them hotel rooms in Chicago is like calling the space shuttle an airplane.” In the Bedrooms category (king or two double beds), privacy doors divide the spaces, creating an ideal environment for working, playing and sleeping. You’ll notice pops of bright color throughout, like with the red Smeg fridge and work light. The Suites category offers more space, double the size of the Rooms category, perfect for a long weekend or an extended stay.
Are you traveling with your pet? Ask for a dog-friendly room, full of pet amenities like water bowls, treats, and a Virgin Hotels red bandana. Pets stay free with no size or breed restrictions. You’ll love the dog sculpture located outside your room.
Something delicious for everyone
Three dining choices are available and easily accessible on the property, so you don’t have to travel far for decent food. Cerise has an extensive cocktail list, hearty bites, lively entertainment, and a rooftop view to boot – it’s your hotspot for late-night fun. Two Zero Three, overlooking the bustling Chicago street, has hot coffee, tea, and small bites waiting for you in the morning. For brunch, head to Miss Ricky’s, which serves favorites like avocado toast, French omelettes, fried chicken and waffles, and churro French toast.
The new menu, created by chef Tony Roldan, is an ode to Windy City’s resilience and the hotel’s ability to pivot during the pandemic and bounce back. The newly imagined beverage program harkens back to days of yore, nodding to the city’s culture and heritage with cocktails named Chicago Outfit, Broad Shoulders, Construction Szn, Michi-Gin Ave and Reverse Flow.
