I love this hotel! The lobby is simple and we checked in quickly. The room is decorated modern and was clean. The bath tub was a step-in and could easily fit 2 and the separate shower was so good I didn't want to get out. We got the room at such a great rate too! Ive stayed in just about...

E Ontario St, just off N Michigan (Magnificent Mile), is where the hotel is located It's a fairly small property surrounded by big chains (Hyatt, Marriott) but quite holds its own. There are numerous eating places along the street and beyond and N Michigan is just 2 blocks away. Staff at the front desk was warm and helpful and I...

This is a lovely boutique hotel. I first stayed there a little over two years ago and go back. Only five hotel rooms per floor. Lovely quiet rooms, so nicely decorated in a modern way, quiet grey tones but with splashes of purple colors. I get the king suite, which has a huge sitting room. Extremely comfy beds. I sleep...

This is a solid 4.5 star hotel experience. Stay here only if you like perfect location, lots of room, separate sleeping area, 2 tvs, automatic curtains, peace & quiet, immaculately clean, soaking tub, rain shower, restaurant discounts, and health club privileges --- and all for a very reasonable price.

Seriously felt scammed. The Ivy was presented on several websites as a 4.5* hotel. It is not. This is a European style hotel. Rooms very small...one queen bed in room for two adults. The shower and lavetory are very modern with a rainfall shower head. However bathroom lighting is abysmal. Very dark, and tiny led lights that are there cast...

I bought this hotel on Groupon. I visit Chicago Northwestern hospital frequently and love when I can find a hotel that is close. This is a small hotel with a very friendly staff.

My partner and I planned a short getaway for my birthday March 18th, 2017. After some research, I thought Ivy would be the best fit for what we wanted: it seemed like it would be a detail-oriented establishment with a refined, modern atmosphere. We arrived Saturday the 18th. Valet was functional, not exceptional. The best staff experience on the 18th...

Staying in Streeterville

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.
