          EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED NEAR MICHIGAN AVENUE”

          We stayed for a week at the Ivy Boutique Hotel. The rooms were spacious, modern, and clean. Housekeeping did an excellent job. While most of the large hotels had strikers picketing, our hotel had no strikers and was competently managed by the staff who were extremely accommodating with every request. Breakfast in the room was perfect, and the food was surprisingly good. The location was midway between the Chicago River and Oak Street, and just a couple of blocks off Michigan Avenue. We easily walked to the Art Institute, Millennium Park, the Trump International Hotel, John Hancock Building, Water Tower Place and 900 N Michigan, where Bloomingdales is located. The Ivy Boutique Hotel had everything we needed without the trouble of a big hotel entrance lobby. It was perfect in every way, and just what we were looking for.

          Loved this hotel!”

          We had an excellent 3 night stay at the Ivy Boutique Hotel—we were even sad to leave! We stayed in the King Suite and had an absolutely fantastic time. The room has a large bathroom with a large shower and bath and double sinks. It has a small kitchen/bar area and a large bedroom type area with a plush king bed. There's also a lounge room with a spacious and comfortable couch. There's also huge windows going out onto the street with mechanical curtains. There's three TVs—one in the lounge, one in the bedroom and even one in the bathroom mirror! Amenities were superb and housekeeping were fantastic and so friendly and welcoming. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly as well—they couldn't do enough for us and ensured they greeted us as soon as we left the hotel or reentered. We also loved the little sweet treats delivered to our room each afternoon. I would love to stay again and would definitely recommend the hotel to a friend!

          great room decoration, large bathtub, great location

          I recommend the king suit. it comes with a separate room with basic office furniture, sofa and TV. The blind and the curtain can be control by the switch. The bathtub is pretty large must try. The location is also nice,no more than 2 miles from all the Chicago landmark. However, the WiFi is not free, it is $9 for 24 hours. I didn't try any food in the restaurant, but there are a lot of good restaurant nearby.

The room was stylish and comfortable, the rooftop bar was a plus, and although they don't have a gym, you get free access to Planet Fitness just a few blocks away (good for the summer, but I would not have wanted to travel a few blocks for a gym if it were winter).

          Great location”

          Best thing about this hotel is its location - close to everything for the first-time Chicago visitor. The room itself was fine but lacked some touches that would have made it excellent (e.g. closet was tiny and could not hang a full-length dress, no bath-robes, no wall art so the room felt very sparse, a little stingy with towels and toiletries, ultra-firm pillows...).

          We've stayed at the IVY a few times now. The room was excellent and quiet. The only complaint I have is the floors were never mopped and the shower wasn't really very clean. Floors looked like they had not been cleaned in quite some time. I don't think their room cleaning services are very good.

          Great hotel apart from the bed”

          I really loved this hotel, friendly staff, nice compact bar and dining area at the entrance, comfortable, good-sized room. Fantastic location around the corner from the Miracle Mile. Just a few El stops from Steppenwolf Theatre.The only disappointing element was the mattress on the bed. I awoke 2 of my 3 nights there with a sore back, and have had to book an osteopath. I would definitely stay there again, but I would insist on a firm mattress.

          Very good”

          We stayed in the king suite. It was an amazing retreat after a long day of walking. Very spacious, large bathtub and shower and separate living area. Located seconds from "the magnificent mile" and within walking distance to Millenium Park etc.
