As this was a business trip, I did not have any say in where I was staying. I was absolutely blown away by the hotel- rooms were huge, bed was huge and comfy, shower was amazing. Checking in and out was super easy and they even left little cookies for me at the end of the night. There was also...

Small hotel, but big, amazing rooms. I had a room with a living room, bedroom, and large bathroom. Breakfast was delicious - even the fruit bowl was perfect. I'm surprised at how great this hotel is for the modest (for Chicago) price. A+!

We revisited the Ivy and were just as impressed as we were the first time. This is luxury relaxation and world class service. Rooms are very clean, quiet, comfortable and outfitted with some of the most unique furniture and bathroom fixtures. The location is an excellent spot for walking downtown or to quickly hail a cab. Many dining and shopping...

Would stay here again in a heart beat. Staff was pleasant enough (though I wouldn't say friendly), and the place was just flat out great. The location was also good, and still managed to be pretty quiet. Overall, a great time!

Great value, nice large rooms. Very much a boutique hotel so not a lot of amenities like a pool or restaurant. But it does not matter, the location is great in River North and there are lots of options for great dining within blocks.

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...
