This was the second time we stayed at the Ivy. We stayed there 3 years ago and to us it has changed a bit. The first time we found everyone to be friendly and helpful, this time not so much. It seems like this time around instead of being treated as them wanting us as customers, it was almost as... More

Nice room with a great location. Room was clean with an extremely relaxing shower--hot with plenty of water. Great after a run. Most impressive was the level the staff went to making me feel at home. They went out of their way to accomodate. Strongly recommended.

We nearly decided to stay elsewhere in Chicago but are very pleased we decided to give The Ivy a go.... For the same money as some of the other well rated hotels in the city you can upgrade to a suite - and this is well worth doing! The suite was beautiful.... The bed was comfortable, the bathroom lovely and... More

My husband and I stayed here on a quick 2 day break from life. I would never want to stay here if we had the kids with us. Rooms were update and "modern" but very small. Hallways smelled like play-doh every day and that was just odd. Hotel is a quick walk (few blocks? Maybe 10-15 min) from magnificent mile.... More

From the friendly, personable, helpful staff to the ultraclean, modern rooms, we were pleasantly surprised that this hotel exceeded our expectations. The location is convenient to Michigan Ave. and Northwestern Memorial Hospital. We stayed in the double Queen suite, the room was spacious and comfortable. There was minimal street noise, the rooms were well insulated. We plan on returning frequently.

We were very pleased to spend an evening here. The rooms were beautiful, modernism executed with quality materials. Nicely laid out, quiet, fine and unobtrusive staff, great location, two blocks off Michigan Ave. They've chosen not to go deep into food service. That is fine, the number of restaurants worth your time are high and are just a few blocks... More

We live in Chicago, but when we have the opportunity to be child-free for a night or two we almost always stay at the Ivy (if we don't it is because they are booked) in one of their King Suites. The accomodations are sleek and modern, as one would expect from a stylish boutique hotel. It is perfectly situated, walking... 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.
