Happy National Concierge Day, Chicago.

image

It’s that time of year again, where we honor those that dedicate their days to making each of our hotel guests’ stays memorable in Chicago.  Who are we speaking of? Our concierges of course!  

According to Concierge Preferred, Chicago’s concierges are “at center stage answering questions and coordinating important functions that enable tourism to thrive and are constantly creating memorable experiences for their guests.” 

Meet our dana concierges… Tim, Romeo & Blair!

We asked our concierges a few questions regarding their role as a concierge: 

1) How long have you been a concierge at dana and what do you love best about it?

Tim: “I’ve been a concierge here at the dana for 5 years and what I love most about this job is planning a guest’s activities and helping them have the best time here in the city.”

Blair: “Iv’e been concierge here at the the dana for 3 years now.

2) What tips do you recommend to travelers visiting Chicago for the first time?

Tim: “A tour of the city is always recommended for first time travelers and no matter what time of year they visit, there is always a tour of the city available: boat, bus, walking ,train, air and underground aka pedway ,architectural and historical.”

Blair:  ”I recommend that travelers visiting Chicago for the first time be prepared for our interesting weather.  What the forecast says isn’t necessarily what is happening even at that moment.  Enjoy the spontaneity of it!”

Contact our concierges at 312.202.6016 and make your next stay in Chicago exciting & memorable.
