Richard Branson, the billionaire entrepreneur thinks he has found an edge: women. More specifically, he says, Virgin is courting female business travelers.

Virgin Hotels was launched in 2010, initially falling behind schedule and losing top executives. It’s first property opened in Chicago and now there are plans for four more locations, including Nashville, New York, Dallas, and New Orleans.

His hotels will emphasize safety with separate room chambers to
accept deliveries and will pamper professional women with features such as well-lit vanities.

“It’s been a long held dream to start beautiful, comfortable, fun hotels for guests and give them what they want and need while being gentle on their wallets,” said Richard Branson, Virgin Group Founder. “I’m tremendously proud of the brilliant Virgin Hotelsteam, and I look forward to hosting our fans and spending more time in Chicago.”

The hotel brand offers free Wi-Fi and has eliminated early check-in fees, late check-out fees, room service delivery charges, business center transactions, and other services that have caused frustration for travelers.
“It’s an exciting time for our team as we get to unveil our new approach to room design, service, and entertainment within the hotel industry. We hope our fans recognize the subtle yet authentic Chicago touches throughout the hotel, and come to think of us as their place away from home whether they’re traveling or a local.”

Virgin Hotels has also taken working from bed to another level. The brand’s patent pending, ergonomically designed bed is the ideal space for setting up shop while on a long business trip, or popping open your computer to stream a movie. Plush bedding rounds out the experience creating ultimate comfort whether guests are working, recharging or playing.
