The location is really good - within walking distance to so many things! The rooms are spacious and very nicely decorated. Wish we would have had a street view instead of an alley looking into other buildings. Security was good, needed your card to scan in elevator to get to the floor. Unfortunately the roof top was closed, that was one of the reasons we originally booked here.

Excellent location! Construction was taking place on the Sky Terrace I believe on the rooftop, but I couldn't hear any sounds from it so have no concerns there. Bed was fantastic, slept like a baby. Modern decor, bathroom was nicely updated with granite/marble. The room seemed exceptionally clean and attention to detail was displayed throughout the room (everything was in its rightful place). I chose a smaller room with a single queen-sized bed and it was fine for an overnight business stay. I would choose a larger room for a weekend stay with my wife however. Food was limited at the hotel other than breakfast, but there are ample restaurants in the area. My sense was the construction had the kitchen down for a bit for lunch and dinner. Staff seemed to understand hospitality, I always appreciate that! Price was right as well.

Dear Bob, Thank you for choosing the Ivy Hotel and for sharing your feedback! It is great to read your comments, and appreciate your kind words. Our food outlets currently consist of Breakfast and Dinner only, but we are in a great area close by many dining options! We hope that you will choose our hotel on a return visit, perhaps in the King Suite next time! Kind Regards,

Weekend getaway

The hotel staff was very friendly and outgoing. The building itself is very chic, modern, and clean. The location is great. The king suite was very spacious and the rainfall shower and deep soaking tub were great for relaxing. The only complaints are that the walls are very thin. It is not a noisy hotel but any subtle noise outside of the room can be heard and can become a little frustrating. Also, the pillows didn’t match the comfort of the mattress. It almost felt as if they were stuffed with newspapers. Other than those minor flaws I’d still stay here again and do recommend it for a short stay.

It was our pleasure to host you and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed the accommodations of our King Suite, which is nearly 700 square feet! I do apologize that the room may have been noisy and that the pillows were not comfortable for you.

Suite experience (pun intended)

Our suite we were booked in was extremely nice! Very clean and the staff was amazing to! Room was more than what I expected the pictures online doesn’t do it justice! The bathroom was amazing too! The only con I had was that I thought the lighting could have been a little brighter where the full length mirror was! Other than that great experience definitely would stay here again it is now one of my favorite hotels!

Stylish comfort in the heart of Chicago

We found IVY through Travelocity and booked somewhat arbitrarily. Wow, did we luck out! The space is stylish and fun. Lots of thoughtful amenities in the room and plenty of extra space to spread out. Little touches like fruit-infused water in the lobby and bite-sized desserts with turn-down all add to the experience. We will be back.

Chicago Week

From the moment we arrived in the airport to getting to the hotel, everything went smoothly. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful and spacious; especially the bathroom. My daughter was pleased- and that was my goal. She was especially impressed by the nightly turn down service in our room. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
