Whether Chicago really is America’s second city depends a bit on your perspective — suffice it to say that when it comes to boutique hotels, it’s long been somewhere outside the top three. The local hoteliers are doing their best to change that, though, and the Ivy is a prime example; modern elegance, an intimate size, upscale amenities and impeccable green credentials tick all the contemporary boutique-hotel boxes, and leave the big corporate chain hotels a distant memory.

It’s a pared-down, graphic style, easy on the eye, heavy on the mid-century modernist references that are Chicago’s bread and butter. The rooms start out fairly big and only get bigger, and the building’s narrow footprint leaves space for just a few rooms on each floor. This small size means the service can get pretty personal — it’s not the sort of place where your comings and goings go unnoticed.

A small restaurant and bar keep things convivial year-round, and room service is open around the clock. And while it’s very much a seasonal amenity — Chicago in winter isn’t exactly an open-air sort of town — the Sky Terrace rooftop bar just might be the Ivy’s most compelling attraction.
