My wife and the kids took a weekend trip to chicago and we stayed at the IVY for 2 days. It is wonderfully located in the heart of downtown chicago with easy accessibility to all the restaurants and is less than 2 blocks from Michigan Ave. We stayed in Queen suite and it was spacious with contemporary minimalistic design. It felt like living in a small luxury 1 bedroom apt. The concierge Ilana was extremely helpful. My kids loved the TV built into the mirror. They also loved the cookies and truffle with the turndown service in the evening. The staff right from the general manager James to the maids and bellboy were extremely friendly and made you feel welcome. it is also reasonably priced for a hotel of this calibre and location in the heart of chicago. We were extremely pleased with our stay and will definitely return!
