We booked here through Hotwire and were happy with the accommodations. It's a great location, just a couple blocks from Michigan Avenue and the staff was friendly. Room was small but had everything we needed.

Location- the perfect spot, just off Michigan Ave, lots of great restaurants, bars and shopping all in walking distance. Our room faced north, had a good nighttime view, I would guess the west and south-facing rooms were even better. Room- The room was fabulous. The bathroom is super luxurious.. French doors leading in, rainfall shower, huge soaker tub, and a... More

Stunning decor, super friendly staff. Looks intimidating upon first arrival, but the staff was super welcoming and friendly. This is a super location. Right of the Magnificent Mile, and close to Lakeshore drive. The beds were soooo comfy! We only stayed one night, but I can't wait to return. The rooms were spacious, and well laid out. If there could... More

The stocked bar, soaking tub and the modern sitting area made this a perfect staycation, there were days we all just stayed in the room. We had everything we needed. The suite was spacious.

When going to the hotel the service is supreme as well as the room. I have researched all of Chicago trying to find a room with that would give you a bath tub and a shower. There King suite provides both which is ample for couples use. Also the two tv's was a plus for the living area if a... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Ivy for four nights and it was the best hotel we have been to. It was very quaint and romantic. Upon checking in we were upgraded to a king suite and everyone was welcoming to us. We are planning on coming back for another getaway together soon.

Got a great deal on the king suite for the weekend. Staff was all super helpful. Great little lobby bar and great location. Would like to go back in the summer and check out the rooftop terrace/bar. The room was awesome and luxurious.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
