Virgin Hotels is a brand of hotels created by Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group, launched in 2010.[1] The current Virgin Hotels company, based in New York, United States, is currently seeking hotel opportunities and is preparing its first hotel.[2]

In October 2011 Virgin Hotels bought the 27 storey Old Dearborn Bank Building in the Loop area of Chicago for $14.8 million from Urban Street Group LLC.[3] As of 2013 the Chicago hotel is being redeveloped with the John Buck Company with the aim of opening it later that year.[1]

The British-based Virgin Hotels Group Limited owns the Virgin Limited Edition portfolio of properties that include luxury resorts such as Necker Island.[4]
