We enjoyed our stay at the Ivy. The room was modern and clean and had a great bathroom (room was on the small side, and had no view). The downside was the lack of insulation in the walls. In the morning we could hear everything going on on our floor. However, the staff was friendly and recommended a fantastic restaurant,... More

We went here for my birthday weekend. Chose the IVY because of groupon offer. Service was great - allowed us to store bags before check in. Suite rooms are large, no view though. Very modern, cozy, comfortable. The large soaker tub was fabulous, much needed after a day of sightseeing/shopping - wish I had bubble bath - the bath salts... More

Our room at the Ivy was a suite. It didn't have much of a view, but we weren't there for the view. It was only about a block from Michigan Avenue with its shopping, restaurants and bars. The room was spacious, with a sitting area distinct from the bedroom and it's very comfortable bed. The bathroom was wonderful with a... More

My mom and I stayed here for several days last summer, and let me just say it was fantastic! The service was excellent and so was our room. All of the staff were very helpful and courteous. And the bathroom--oh the bathroom! It was glorious. There was a television in the mirror. I just can't wait to go back!

There is not one bad thing I could say about the Ivy, everything from the staff to the condition of the rooms was exceptional. It's distinguished without feeling stuffy, trendy while remaining comfortable, and ammenities you dont see at any other hotels (from the shoe polish to shower loofa!)

We had two king suites and found them to be very suitable for visiting and relaxing together. Our friend's nephew came to visit one evening before dinner and it was nice to have the sitting area....
