Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the United States have evolved in recent decades. However, LGBT Americans may still face some legal and many social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents, particularly in states with large conservative populations, such as in the Deep South; in rural areas; and in some Native American tribal nations.
U.S. federal law does not explicitly include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In June 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and gender identity are included under “sex” as a prohibited ground of employment discrimination in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Check in and room was quite nice. I asked for a room with a view of Chicago and had a great view from Room 2413 of the Chicago downtown area and the Navy Pier and Lake Michigan. Room had empty refrigerator for placing leftovers and water. No robe or slippers. Hairdryer and iron were present.
This place looked like it would be safe, decent, not too far from the downtown stuff, and had a reasonable price compared to others in downtown. It turned out exactly what I searched for. The hotel was even nicer than I expected. Very fancy, upscale lobby. The hallway carpets were a bit worn, but not bad. The room was very nice. I paid for an upgrade to a “city view” and it was worth it. It was a little farther to downtown than I expected, I thought it would be a fairly quick walk, but it was not – took Uber which was around $7. But overall, very happy I picked this hotel and I would go back again.
Very large hotel with plenty of space to roam. Rooms are good. Breakfast buffet was good. Not too far from downtown Chicago, but far enough to take a cab. Hotel is attached to the McCormick event center via a sky walk. There were other skywalks connected to it that led you to other hotels as well. Staff was great too.
The staff was friendly and prompt answering all questions regarding marathon shuttle information and nearby dining recommendations.
The rooms were clean, we stayed on a higher floor with a view. The rooms were a good size, more than enough room for 2 adults.
The dining options were great, we ate at The Arc and Market, both were both great and convenient since we were tight on time.
The location was convenient since the expo was at McCormick Place, however with two small kids, we might opt to stay a little more centralized next time since little legs get tired easily. We took Lyft a couple times but will look into public transportation next trip.
Tips: the Chicago Trolley is a great way to see the city. Lots of good information and handy to jump on and off as you please.
Some may consider the location of the hotel as a drawback. It is somewhat far from downtown Chicago. To get to downtown, you need to take a taxi; or, you can take public transportation. I took public transportation (the L and the bus). Public transportation is easy and fast – faster than taking a taxi or Uber or Lift! By taking public transportation, I was able to get to know the city a bit better.
I consider the hotel’s distance from downtown an advantage, as it is away from the noisy downtown area, while being close enough for a quick ride to downtown.

There was a desk and chair to set up our laptop and the WiFi and overall connectivity in the suite was good and supported our needs. Very tiny closet space; no way to free-hang coats or dresses due to the safe being in the way. Big TV in the living area as well as the bedroom area. Small wet bar, coffee maker and mini fridge to store personal drinks and snacks. Must request ice. Nice bar in the lobby for evening cocktails and they have a fabulous outdoor terrace (seasonal and weather permitting).
The service was excellent although somewhat short staffed as there was often only one person manning the front desk and they were the same peeps that would deliver extra towels and ice so it took a bit of a wait for requested items. However, every staff member we encountered where incredibly friendly, welcoming and helpful.
The location of this hotel is EXCELLENT and perfect for a downtown Chicago experience; close to many restaurants, bars and shopping. Michigan Ave and the heart of the Magnificent Mile is just two short blocks/six minute scenic stroll away. Great deep dish at Gino’s East (10 min scenic walk), wonderful healthy flame grilled Peri-Peri chicken right next door at Nando’s, and a perfect steak and cocktails on the corner at The Capital Grille. Great old school Chicago tavern on the corner and a Whole Foods, Target and Walgreens 10 min walk away. Tip: we always UBER to Lincoln Park for deep dish at Pequod’s; not fancy but definitely FAB! Just sayin…
The Ivy is lovely; we LOVE staying here! Enjoy.

his boutique hotel is conveniently situated within walking distance to all the main attractions in Chicago, restaurants and subway.
Check in is 3pm and check out is 12pm. Check in itself was quick and painless and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The hotel has a restaurant, a trendy bar, spa, gym and rooftop terrace but we didn’t visit those so unable to comment further.
The rooms themselves (ours was a king deluxe) are spotlessly clean, with a king sized bed, mini bar, air conditioning, safe, iron/ironing board, big LCD TV with cable channels, complimentary toiletries, robes/slippers and a huge rainfall shower. Our bedding was changed daily as were the towels (even though we hung them up), so housekeeping was probably a bit over-efficient.
There is also complimentary WiFi throughout the hotel which was decent and fast.
Distance from O’hare airport is roughly 16 miles and an Uber cost approx $30.
Overall; an enjoyable stay and good value for money.
Eurostars offers a descent accommodation within downtown Chicago. Within a walking distant to some of the nice restaurants and shops around Magnificent Mile. I hardly used a taxi or bus on the trip.
Buffet Breakfast is quite basic – cereal, yoghurt, breads, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, fruits and juices. However I think there is opportunity for you to order more options if the menu. Descent minibar with a wide selection of wines. The gym facility is quite small but felt it was quite adequate for the occasional crowd I encountered.
The room was comfy. I will likely visit again but may consider other options for the price. Spent my first 3 nights but did the remainder nights at Hyatt Regency and it made me wonder a bit on the pricing vs value.
