This is a small, upscale boutique. Everything was wonderful. It was quiet, the king bed was comfortable, the blinds closed so the room was very dark for sleeping. The shower was amazing -plenty of hot water.

This isn't a 5 star like the Ritz or the Peninsula but, value wise, it is a great place to stay. The lobby is small and the bar never has more then a couple of people in it so if that's your scene don't stay here. The star of this hotel is the rooms; I stayed in the king suite...

Spacious living and sleeping areas. Modern furnishings with automated window treatments in the living area. Huge bathroom - the rainforest shower was AMAZING. Service was excellent....

I am writing this review now when my stay hasn't even finished, because I feel so compelled by the slow wifi that they CHARGE for. I am here on a business trip, and I need functioning internet. I don't mind the $9 fee/day as long as its highspeed internet which they promise. It takes 30 seconds to load the nytimes,...

I was looking forward to writing an unequivocally positive review. The location of this property could not be better, within easy walking distance of restaurants, Northwestern, great architectural landmarks, shopping, and even a Whole Foods for those of us who can only deal with so many long restaurant meals. They offer a free pass to a local gym. The rooms...

Staying at a suite for less than the price of a standard room at the W hotel 1 block away! Okay, it is not as hip and trendy but the rooms are very well designed and staff is helpful and friendly. Rooms are fairly quiet and spacious. Great bed and shower too! If you have to be downtown this is...

Ivy Boutique Hotel is just that. It is not a big fancy hotel. It is small and very quiet (even during construction across the street). It is super modern. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of the area with good restaurants nearby. The place was very clean. I would certainly stay there again.

Excellent! Always top service and gorgeous detail! Close to downtown shopping and surround by great restaurants. Will be back for sure. The quaintness is so nice. Feels relaxed yet upscale. We have been here a few times now. I was reminded why we were drawn to this Hotel.

I stayed here in mid-October during a conference.

Neighbourhood 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.
