The Ivy Boutique Hotel was a great experience. A great location with beautifully decorated and quiet/comfortable rooms. On top of that the most helpful and friendly staff I have experienced at a Chicago hotel.

The hotel is small and has nice rooms with lots of gadgets like electric curtains. Very trendy decor. However, there are almost no ither facilities. Location is very convenient. The one thing I am very disappointed about is that Ivy keeps sending me marketing emails (at least one each day) despite me telling them on several locations to stop. I... More

I stayed here with my fiancé as I went to a conference. We stayed in a king suite which was spacious and well decorated. The room was clean and the bathroom very large. We loved the shower and large tub, and also appreciated the bath crystals. The bed was very comfortable and the living area was excellent. The windows were... More

Electric curtains and electric do not disturb buttons...what else could you ask for??? I really enjoyed staying here (King Suite). The room was very big with a great bathroom. There is a tub large enough for two and a great waterfall shower. This is my new go-to for the Chicago area. Almost forgot, the staff is great.

this hotel is well situated near Michigan Avenue. Rooms are really nice and spacious, and bathroom is very luxurious! Also, lots of little restaurants close by - we really liked Blaze Pizza. Would definitely come back and recommend this hotel to friends!

We stayed at the Ivy for 4 nights starting on Christmas and had a lovely stay. First of all, it has one of the most reasonably priced valet services of anywhere in the city, in my experience. The hotel is small, definitely boutique. But the King Suites are a great size with a separate living room space. There are TVs... More
