My wife and I just returned from a long weekend in Chicago. We go often and have stayed a several nice places. This was our first time at the Ivy and it won't be our last. We did book through Hotwire and got a very good deal. I had done my research and new the hotel was Ivy before I booked. It is listed as a 4.5 star boutique in the water tower area. I was surprised that we were given the King Suite at the rate we paid. I think the hotel was full and they had filled all their Queen Studios or I'm certain that we would have been given one of those. The suite was awesome, probably worth the additional expense.
We really liked the small hotel feel. Never saw anyone else on our floor. Hotel was very clean. Room was scuffed in few spots but pretty clean and very stylish. Tons of space. Very quiet and dark at night. Unusual for a city hotel. Great location. Friendly staff. Good value even at full rate. Excellent value on Hotwire. Maybe if you booked for 3 people you would get the suite?
We are picky. We either want a great deal or a fantastic property. With the Ivy we got both.
