The staff was wonderful. The afternoon doorman was a gem. He took our bags to the room and stayed to explain all the special touches including a TV in the bathroom that the mirror changes into the screen. Never had seen this before. Also liked the special way to operate the drapes and the clever "do not disturb" procedure rather...

I absolutely love The modern contemporary decor at the Ivy boutique. I have stayed there in the past and enjoyed myself thoroughly. The last two times I stayed I was treated poorly and I will never go back. I requested my room to be cleaned the morning I arrived due to soiled linens and was told I could not have...

Went and saw Rent with the Misses and got an express deal on priceline for 134 with taxes and fees. Good Deal especially for this Hotel. Great location, and the King Suite was awesome. Only complaint was I like a smoking hot shower the morning after drinking all night and the water never got hot enough. Regardless we will stay...

A great Chicago botique hotel a couple blocks off the "Magic Mile". The room was very nice, clean with a great en-suite. The room was quiet, even though it was accross from the elevator. Each time we went out, the suite was cleaned, bed made up & chocolate treats left for our return. The staff was always courteous and helpful....

Pros: 1) service and friendliness of staff is off the charts: bell hop, front desk, cleaning ladies... all went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. 2) the room (king suite) was so spacious, newly renovated, modern design and furniture, and with great touches (e.g. automatic blinds). 3) the bathroom is luxurious: waterfall shower, big soaking tub, two sinks......

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.

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.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
