I had a conference in Chicago last weekend and found this amazing hotel right in the heart of everything. 5 minute walk to the architecture tour, right beside magnificent mile, a 5 minute walk to the river, walk to great shopping and restaurants..everything. The hotel itself is a boutique hotel for sure in that it is small, modern and trendy.... More

Stayed two separate times in August 14 - both stays for 2 nights. King Suite rooms are very spacious and well-appointed. Love the bed and pillows as well as having the wet bar area with fridge for coffee/drinks. Bathroom is spacious and also well-appointed with rain-shower shower head and full sunken bath tub. We were able to take advantage of... More

stayed for one night in august 2014. rooms are nice, rather large and well appointed. however, one has the feeling upon entry into the lobby of an "Israeli" disco. Rather tacky. there are certainly better choices at their price range.

This boutique hotel was a wonderful respite from all the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. There are only about 5 - 6 rooms per floor so it is very quiet. Shower was spectacular. I could have stayed under it all day. We opted for the upgrade and it was worth it. The beds were comfortable. Every evening we... More

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.

Hello ChiWind, Thank you for your review on the IVY Hotel. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, and that the room was to your liking.

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...
