Ivy Hotel

233 E Ontario, Chicago - 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.

Rating: 3.5 Stars

Hotel Indigo Chicago Downtown Gold Coast

1244 N Dearborn Parkway, Chicago - 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!

Chicago Lake Shore Hotel

4900 S Lake Shore Dr, Chicago - Map
"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.

    Pack your swimsuit and make sure you’ve got your sunglasses, because your Chicago beach trip is about to begin.

    The shores of Lake Michigan provide a number of beaches for you to explore; Chicago has 41 km of beach altogether. Head over to 57th Street Beach, located south of Promontory Point. Designed by Olmstead & Vaux—the designers of Central Park—this beach offers plenty of sand to frolic in, a lifeguard station, and a food stand in the summer. Lake Michigan rarely warms up all that much, but the braver among you can go for a swim in its blue depths. In winter, the lake gets even colder. Feeling particularly daring? Join one of the local Polar Bear Swims and see how long you last in the icy waters.

    If you’re looking for some sporting action, North Avenue Beach is the place to be. You can play volleyball, rent kayaks, or splash around in the shallow waters to your heart’s content. You’ll have plenty of company; North Avenue Beach is extremely popular with the locals.

    When you’re beachcombing in Chicago, a beach hotel is the perfect place to stay. You’ll be right near the water; just put on your board shorts and amble out of your hotel and straight to the shore. You won’t need to worry about taking public transportation to the beach, or getting the frown of a cabbie when you track sand into his not-so-pristine cab. Some beach hotels offer the use of sun loungers, chairs, and other items that can make your sandy adventure more fulfilling—inquire at the desk to see what they can do for you. knows you want to enjoy your beach trip without worrying about all the details. Let us find you the best discounts on your accommodations, whether you want to stay at the beach or at another type of Chicago hotel. We’ll handle the nitty-gritty, leaving you more time to construct the perfect sandcastle.
