Chicago residents got a surprise last week, with a sizeable red wrap appearing on the upper floors of the first ever Virgin Hotel, as work to transform the old Dearborn Bank continues.

The 250 room hotel is scheduled to open in spring 2014, with similar openings possibly following in Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Palm Springs, San Francisco, Washington DC, London, and beyond.

But what can we expect in the properties? Well for starters, free secure, reliable and fast WiFi throughout, according to Doug Carrillo, Virgin Hotels VP Sales and Marketing.

Virgin attracts travelers who like to mix business with pleasure, whether they are checking their inbox during a getaway or checking out new restaurants and local entertainment inbetween business, explained Carrillo to Hotel Chatter.

Like our sister Virgin companies, we at Virgin Hotels will offer guests a distinct and better experience at a great value and product innovations that arent bells and whistles but that will result in a productive and enjoyable stay. We already love our guests so much that we plan to give them all the tech amenities they need -- starting with wifi that is secure, reliable, fast, and free.
