Stayed for two nights at the Ivy last week. It is under a year old, which was obvious when my cab driver wasn't familiar with its location.
This intimate hotel has only five rooms per floor. Rooms are stylish with great amenities including nightly turn down service complete with two bite-sized desserts - small white and dark chocolate chip cookies when I arrived and the next night a chocolate-dipped strawberry and small carrot cake. These were placed on an elegant tray along with the next day's weather forecast and a breakfast menu each evening on the comfortable platform bed.
The spacious bathroom has a great rain shower and a separate hand-held wand. Lighting is abysmal, however the hotel is replacing all the mirrors so hopefully that will come with new lighting as well. It would also be nice to have a separate switch for the bathroom fan rather than it coming on instantly with the lights.
There is a new rooftop lounge which I didn't get to go to but looks lovely with great drinks and a bar menu of small plates.
The location is fantastic - very central to everything on the Miracle Mile. All the staff were cordial and accommodating. What better recommendation could be said than I will definitely stay here again.
