My husband and I "ran away" for an early Valentine's weekend in downtown Chicago. I'd booked the Ivy back in September when they were offering a grand opening special through Bloomspot; figured it was low risk for trying out a new place. But I need not have worried in the least. The Ivy was awesome. We loved the sleek, modern design - minimalist but infused with warm woods, natural stone, and pops of color. The king suite was huge, especially for a downtown right off Michigan Avenue!. It was thoughtfully laid out, giving us a true "living area" separate from the bedroom. Nice big couch for movie lounging. Very comfortable Serta bed. Luxe bathroom. Room service had great food and came right on time. Tech amenities (e.g., 3 flat screens; iPod dock; remote controlled curtains). Spotlessly clean. Every single staff member was friendly and genuinely interested in providing concierge-level service. Excellent location surrounded by shopping, countless restaurants, etc. and only a 1 mile cab ride to the theatre district. Loved that we were supporting a locally-owned establishment with real personality (vs. a sterile, impersonal chain hotel). The Ivy is elegant with a chic vibe, and great staff to make it come alive!
