Everything about the Ivy Hotel was amazing. Room was very spacious. All of the employees there were very nice and accommodating. The nightly turn down service with little sweet treats left for us to enjoy were a nice touch.

The bed was low to the ground with a hard, uncomfortable mattress. The flat screen TVs looked ancient, and the cool little in the mirror tv in the bathroom wouldn't even... More

It's location was perfect, you're two blocks from Michigan Ave. and there's no shortage of walk-able food/drink/shopping options. The room was outstanding. The bathrooms... More

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.
