The Virgin Hotel is a dream hotel for people into design and technology, with an app to control the room temperature, a pour-over coffee setup in each room and a Tesla to give free rides to guests. The rooms themselves are sleek, with Smeg refrigerators, swiveling desks and a bedroom/lounge, a bathroom/dressing room, and, if you have a suite, an extra room with a couch and a second TV. The bed is pretty comfortable and had a padded backrest at one corner of the foot of the bed. The press release about the hotel said the bed “functions as a playpen and traditional bed," so interpret that as you'd like.

Pretty much in love with this hotel. Perfect amenities, lovely room design, great central location. Plus the bar downstairs is open late and staffed with some very friendly and skilled barkeeps.
Great hotel! They have a happy hour special for guests from 6-8PM. Rooms were very nice too. Gym was mediocre, but you can still get a good workout in. I'd definitely recommend friends stay there, and would like to stay there again the next time I'm in Chicago.
Awesome hotel! The rooms are super funky and fun, and the hotel itself offers plenty to do, with multiple places to grab drinks and food. You'll want to hang out on the main bar lounge area's comfy couches for hours. The Virgin also hosts tons of special events, from DJs to live music and art shows.
A great hotel in a great location, with lots of little special touches (mini Smeg fridges, plaster guard dogs outside each suite, daily giveaways at the front desk). The room service and restaurant are quality, the beds are comfy and the staff are helpful and friendly. If you're leaving the hotel for somewhere nearby, definitely take a (complimentary!) ride in the hotel's bright red Tesla.
