I heartily recommend the King Suite at this hotel. The front desk is friendly and helpful, willing to meet your wants and needs. Even if traveling alone, the extra space and furnishing found in the King Suite ensures your comfort and privacy. If at first the beds here seem soft, the pillows can be utilized for comfort for people with... More

Staying here for three nights, and it is fabulous. Suites are extremely roomy, bright, clean, comfortable and inviting. The perfect escape from a hard day sightseeing. Within walking distance to all the sights and travel options. Close to some great restaurants. Would really recommend the Ivy to anyone...

Chris D from Canada I was there for 4 nights. The staff where great, the room was very "new" and warm with the rain fall shower being the best shower I have ever had. The neighborhood is safe and close walking distances to sights and transit and convieances. The sky terrace is very cosy and priced modestly. I had a... More

We recently stayed for 2 nights and I found a wonderful price on a King Suite. We were traveling with my 1 year old son so the separate spaces were great especially when it came to bedtime. Before we had arrived we asked that the coffee table be moved and the fridge be emptied for his milk, both were done... More

This is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in (and despite my lack of reviews I have actually stayed in a lot!). The rooms are very stylish with incredibly comfortable beds, quality linen and towels together with stylish furniture give a real feeling of opulence. Great views from large floor to ceiling windows and electric blinds and curtains.... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of July, and we were pleasantly surprised by this little gem. We were in the King suite, and there was a nice den to relax and spread your things around. The room itself was very well clean and well appointed - the bathroom has a separate shower and soaker tub. The hotel... More

For my first time visiting Chicago, I was very pleased with this hotel. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The rooms were huge and come with a living room area. There's a TV in every room, including the bathroom. In the early evening, the staff will personally bring each room a tray of fresh desserts and note which informs... More

Stayed here for two nights at the end of a four week roadtrip. The hotel is very central and the room (King Suite) was massive. After a long day sightseeing and shopping it was great to be able to relax on the couch. The bathroom was excellent as well, and included both a rainfall shower and a deep soaking tub.... More

Accommodating staff, clean modern rooms. Location was perfect for walking to sites. I arrived very late at night after a very miserable travel day. The staff was waiting and got me right into my room. The pastries on the desk are yummy!

Stayed overnight on a quick trip through the city. If you know Chicago well and are just in for meetings, work, hospital, etc, this hotel is for you. Great rooms (I was upgraded to a King suite) and perfect location especially for the hospital complex. Hotel feels like a small apartment building. However, there is very little service in this...
