Virgin’s First Hotel Opens in Chicago – Cool Amenities & Perks

by Adam

Virgin opened its first hotel almost three weeks ago, located in the old Dearborn Bank building within the Chicago Loop district. The hotel offers some pretty cool (and typically Virgin) amenities and perks:

Social Hour

Where free thinkers meet free spirits, the Social Hour at the Commons Club is an open invitation to gather as one at the roundtable of ideas and indulgence. Here, guests of the hotel are treated to nightly cocktails, hosted on us from 6pm – 7pm (top shelf inclusive).

The Know

Why you ask? Because who doesn’t want a mini fridge stocked with your favorite chasers, or a Chicago-style dog treat for your puppy? Giving you preferential treatment that fits your style is what being in The Know is all about. We’ve tossed aside the typical hotel rewards game. In it’s place we’re rewarding you with exactly what you want – all you need to do is tell us. This is your hotel; run it as you wish. Start here to get in The Know. We’ll take it from there.


We focused on how a room works, not just how it looks. And ours works 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. Considering every desire and comfort of the modern traveller, we’ve channeled thoughtfulness, creativity, and technology into a bespoke Chamber concept that will tickle your fancy, among other areas

Mobile App

Ring guest services right from our mobile app. Order room service, control the climate, make dinner reservations, valet your car, even live chat with your concierge and other guests. This seamless integration will tap your happy buttons.


No nickel and diming, no charging extra for bandwidth – if you want to download some guilty pleasures, play PC games, or stream some video subscriptions, naughty or otherwise, please, have at it.

Mini-Bars at Street Prices

Convenient drinks and snacks without paying the cost of convenience or for someone to stock it is simply brilliant, if we do say so ourselves. And, we just did.

A Nashville property should open later this year and then a New York location is slated for a 2017 opening.
