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...

The hotel is small but very nice. They rooms are very generous in size and well equipped. The bathrooms are quite nice with a rainfall shower and separate tub. There is a tv in the bathroom mirror. However, it was not functioning. I called and asked to have it fixed and they said they would send someone but this never... More

My spouse and I stayed there for the first time for our 3 yr wedding anniversary and loved the room - King Suite. It was spacious, very modern.

We arrived a bit earlier so we were told that they had no room, but that they will store our luggage and we should come back in about two hours. So my husband and I went to the washroom to fresh up and suddenly a room was free. It was only at the 5th floor but it was a nice... More

Stayed at the Ivy for a city trip and mainly chose the hotel for the location and the rooftop terrace. The location was fantastic, in close proximity to mag mile, navy pier and mca. The queen suite was spacious, great interior and very clean. Unfortunately we looked out on a dumpster which was not as pleasant, but Since we spent... More

I recently hosted a meeting at the Ivy for a group of colleagues. The meeting room (we were in the ballroom) was the perfect size and the set up was great.

What a great place to bring that special someone. We pulled up to the valet and the doorman was right there to get our things and as we went in/out during our stay he always opened the door for us.

The hotel was beautiful and the rooms were amazing and comfortable! The only thing I disliked was the price of the mini bar and snacks in the room.
