Great property…highly recommended. The hotel is spectacularly clean and well maintained and everything is modern and trendy. Located only a few blocks from Michigan Avenue, so it’s nice and quite but walking distance to everything(shopping, restaurants, Navy Pier, movie theater..). Hotel staff was great, always greeting you with the smile. Especially doorman/bellman (upss forgot his name - African-American with an accent) excellent person in taking over the job of making us feel like family each time we walked in to the door. Also Amy at the front desk was very helpful in setting up in room massage and our anniversary dinner. Thanks Amy - our couples massages was A+ as you said …. If my boyfriend who is 6’4 and like real deep was very satisfied. That shows that they have great professionals working there. If he could he would take Anna (his therapist) home with us ☺. Also they have roof top bar that suppose to be amazing in summer time. We didn’t have a chance to experience it this time due to rainny season, but can’t wait to return.

We stay in a lot of nice Chicago loop hotels during the off season thru specials on travel zoo. The Ivy Boutique was by far the best we have seen. Our suite was luxurious. Three separate rooms all decorated to the hilt. It was the first time we've had 3 tv's in the suite. One was located in the bathroom mirror. The room had one major annoyance- one light switch controlled 2 rooms. There was no way to turn off the bedroom lights without turning off the adjacent room. The location of perfect for our plans of visiting the Driehaus museum and going to the Looking Glass Theater. There were a lot of inexpensive,well rated restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: There are only 5 suites on each floor. We think the higher rooms have better views.

I stayed here one night while on business. I booked the hotel on hotel tonight for $110.00 I upgraded to the king suite for $30.00. Overnight parking was $48.00
The room was clean modern and well appointed. It had a comfortable separate sitting area. Nice work desk.
The bedroom was not overly decorated and it works.
There is only 5 rooms per floor
I would definitely stay here again

Stayed in a King Suite, and it was everything we had hoped for. Spacious, clean, quiet, awesome bathroom features and super comfortable bed. The staff was friendly and attentive. Yes, parking is expensive, but that's Chicago. You could save literally just a few bucks going elsewhere but it isn't worth it to save $5. Just valet with Ivy and you'll get great and fast service whenever you need your car back. Little touches like turn down service with mini-desserts and a spritz of lavender on the pillow make your stay even nicer.

unfortunately i lost all of my good photos, but this room was AMAZING! deep, long tub, rainfall shower, tv in the mirror, bar area, california king bed, tv in the living room and tv in the lounge area, BEAUTIFUL furniture...like I have absolutely nothing bad to say. If I HAD to choose a downfall, it would be the lack of view...and well, there could be a door between the lounge area and the bedroom but honestly, it doesn't even matter when you see the place. Highly recommended to anybody! read more on secondcitystays.wordpress.com !

Room Tip: The suites are absolutely worth the money. Also try groupon or hotel tonight for best prices. lwalke...

We thought we were going to have a nice stay-cation for the weekend but no heat and no hot water were not what we expected. After reading some reviews we decided on this hotel since the majority of the reviews were positive, but our first night was pretty inconvenient to say the least. After checking and getting settled into our room was a very nice we realized after a few hours that the heat would not turn on in our room no matter what setting we put it on. So my boyfriend went to speak with someone at the front desk and ran into another guest that said that he had no hot water and his room and was actually had the same we room we were in the previous night and he had the same problem with the heat. My boyfriend waited 45mins then someone finally showed and told him that he was busy with the hot water issue and just threw a room key at him and gave him another room. Hoping that we would get a more considerate staff member my boyfriend and I went to speak to the someone at the front desk about our inconvenient night’s stay, but all we received was a dry "sorry and I'm sure your second will be better" from the staff member. Needless to say we will not be staying at this hotel ever again the service was terrible.

Great lighting, beautiful interior design, natural beauty products, excellent room service.. Very tranquil atmosphere and most of all those organic Italian linen sheets! Very comfortable. To top everything off, delicious complementary homemade blueberry muffins in the morning. I'd come here again.. Very rejuvenating!
