The location of the hotel is excellent. My travel partner and I walked to many local restaurants and shopping. The suites are large and very comfortable. The bathrom shower and tub is spa like to say the least! If I could make one suggestion it would be to ad dimmer functionality to the overhead bed lights. We will definitely be... More

Stayed at the Ivy recently--the location really cannot be beat. It's close to shopping, sights, transportation. The rooms are very pleasant, but the views aren't exactly great--we looked out over a construction site. Closet space is what I would call "minimal"! There was literally nowhere to store luggage! The "wet bar" takes up a big chunk of room space, which... More

First time in Chicago. The Ivy Hotel was perfect for us. We could walk to everything we needed to. The rooms are a good size. Ours had a living room area just beyond the bedroom space. The bathroom had a separate bath/shower. Double sink. Very clean. The staff were pretty helpful. Plenty of food options nearby.

Check-in was a breeze - got to check in early! The King Suite is VERY spacious and the bathroom nice and large - soaker tub was fabulous! The bed was extremely comfortable. Room service breakfast was delivered hot and on time and the food was DELICIOUS. Hotel staff very accommodating and kind. We can't wait to stay here again.

The hotel has a low quality nightclub vibe. The lighting in the lobby is bright purple and the music is pulsing. The lighting in the rooms is fluorescent. The rooms have no natural light. At all. If you are in the king suite, there is a dividing wall between you and the sitting area, which is where the window is.... 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.
