Ivy Hotel

233 E Ontario, Chicago 60611 - Map
"I enjoyed our stay there. Good location"
The hotel is very close to shopping on Michigan Ave, which is great. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms are much more spacious than I expected with a separate room with a desk, sofa and TV, and then the bed room. The bathroom was also quite large and well appointed. My biggest issue was that all of the rooms including the bathroom was very dark. They definitely could use more lighting. We didn't eat at the hotel, so I can't comment on the food. We did have cocktails at the bar both nights, which was nice, but quite. Not an active lobby or bar scene.

"Beach Location"
We spent a night at the resort on our way home on vacation. It is a very pretty location on the shore of Lake Michigan. Front desk personnel were friendly and quick. The room was clean and comfortable. We ate at the on-site restaurant and the fish buffet, on Friday, was good. Breakfast was very good. The waitstaff were very gracious, helpful and friendly.

Hotel Indigo Chicago Downtown Gold Coast

1244 N Dearborn Parkway, Chicago 60610 - Map
"Cozy hotel in a fairly good location "
The quaintness of the decor was right up my alley, the restaurant was a plus due to the location of the hotel, and it was clean. My major complaint would be the thinness of the doors. You could hear every sound through them. That was the distraction that might make me consider staying there again. I wouldn't want to have to whisper!

"Nice hotel, good restaurant, great location!"
The hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful. The restaurant on the property had great service and good quality food. The location of the hotel was really great. We got to explore a wonderful neighbourhood by foot with lots of great restaurants and shops. It was very safe for 2 women to explore day or night on foot. The hotel seems to be under-going a renovation, but that did not interfere with our enjoyment of our time there.
