Exceed expectations nearly in every way! Great/attentive staff, our suite was enormous, luxurious bathroom with separate tub & large rain head shower, plus double sinks. Secure/solid building with great views from seasonal rooftop outdoor bar. Room had little to no street or other guest sounds coming in. Nightly turn down service with sweets was a real treat.

I attended a conference held at the IVY (approximately 45 attendees). The hotel was perfect. My room was unlike any hotel room I have stayed at. It was a King Suite and had 3 separate rooms....a huge bath suite, a King bed area with TV and the 3rd area was your living space with large couch, TV, Desk, Lamp, Chairs,... More

Ideally situated, the rooms are really nice and very large. The service has been below any possible expectation though. We had to wait 15 min to get out breakfast the first morning. To avoid this, we pre-ordered the day after but nothing was ready when we came to the lobby at 07:20. Grabbing a taxi was not a pleasant experience... More

What a beautiful, modern hotel! I stayed in a king suite which was huge with modern decor. The bathroom was huge & the rain shower head was delightful. Was disappointed that the bathroom in-mirror TV was not working and the shower smelled slightly moldy but no complaints other than that. The bed was comfortable and the minibar very well-stocked.

Staying in Streeterville

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.
