Reviewed 4 November 2015

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.

We stayed for a couple nights at the Ivy for my husbands work trip. Was in the perfect location for Michigan avenue shopping! I really enjoyed the contemporary vibe, uplights and scent of the lobby.

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....

The hotel is right off of the Magnificent Mile and close to the Navy Pier. Northwestern Univ. campus is a block or two away. To use the train system it's a bit of a walk but certainly doable. Being on a side street it's pretty quiet. The hotel is relatively small and there were only 5 rooms on our floor.The...

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.
