My wife and I stayed here for our recent stay in Chicago. Having never stayed at Boutique type hotels, this experience was rather new for us. There were dozens of things we loved about the hotel. It's location was perfect, you're two blocks from Michigan Ave. and there's no shortage of walk-able food/drink/shopping options. The room was outstanding. The bathrooms... More

We stayed at The Ivy during a recent visit to Chicago and were very pleased with our experience. The hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance to dining and shopping (and Eataly!). Our room was very large, comfortable and clean with separate living and sleeping areas. The bed was extremely comfortable with quality linens and pillows. The bathroom was... More

I had a wonderful experience at this hotel. The room was clean and the bed very large and comfortable. Very nice clean bathroom. The service was spectacular. I found the location of the hotel with respect to superb restaurants desirable and it was easy to walk to the pier and local movie theatre. They have free wifi with very decent... More

A wonderful hotel! Perfect location, a minute from Magnificent Mile shopping, Giordano's pizza, Nice restaurants and TILT. The staff was extremely helpful and I got an early check-in with no problem. The rooms are GORGEOUS, and very spacious, huge bathroom, nice comfy couch and bed. There is currently construction across the street but it didn't bother us at all. Everyone... More

I almost don't want to write this review and draw more attention to this hotel, but they deserve the praise! After purchasing the room blindly on hotwire, I arrived a day early having entered the wrong date when I purchased the room. Having done this in the past, I fully expected to lose my reservation and pay for a new... More

I wound up at this hotel by accident when I went on a hotel blind bidding site. What a treasure. It was definitely romantic and the rooftop bar was fun. I loved the feel of the rooms, very contemporary. The small lobby and staff are very welcoming.

Very comfortable beds and large, well appointed room (king suite). Unfortunately, the pillows are hard as a rock and the TV in the bathroom mirror did not work. Staff were very pleasant and helpful at check-in. We only stayed one night and would return again if we got another bargain. Two blocks from all the great shopping Chicago has to... More

Having stayed at the Park Hyatt just prior to arriving at this hotel, we didn't expect all that much from this hotel. We were definitely wrong !! More (as in dollar signs) isn't always better. The hotel wasn't super busy during Thanksgiving week which was a good thing. Reception was efficient and friendly. Mini muffins in the morning at the... More

My wife and I enjoyed a night out away from the kids following my military deployment return. We are so happy that we chose the Ivy. They had great communication with me when booking and were very friendly. The room was amazing (king suite), we particularly loved the decor and the shower. We will certainly stay here again.
