In the Roaring '20s, this boutique Streeterville hotel hosted celebrities and showgirls. While those times have faded, the air of glamour remains at the Inn of Chicago, an Ascend Collection hotel. For proof, just stroll the lobby, where zebra ottomans, fresh-cut orchids and metallic embossed walls create drama and urban appeal. With its central location and focus on value, Inn of Chicago, an Ascend Collection hotel is a gem for business or leisure travelers seeking convenient access to the Magnificent Mile and its many diversions.

Rooms

The rooms and suites at Inn of Chicago, an Ascend Collection hotel feel more like apartments than hotel rooms, and that's on purpose. Back in the 1920s, the former Hotel St. Clair offered one-bedroom apartments, and the effects linger today at the Inn of Chicago, an Ascend Collection hotel. Space for entertaining, working and lounging are separate from the sleeping area. Big picture windows with skyline views, photos of Chicago, zebra upholstery and unique layouts lend to a chic city vibe. In-room wireless Internet access is available for a fee.

Property features

Great city views might well be the most valuable cache for Chicago hotels and for Inn of Chicago, an Ascend Collection hotel, this view comes at the Skyline Terrace on the 22nd floor.

Vacation

Was a good hotel. The biggest pain was the checkin time. 3 pm is a little late if your flight gets in in the morning. The flight boarding pass printing station was convenient.

Great location!

The room was small, as expected, but the location is great! No vent in the bathroom, and free wifi only in the lobby, but it was clean, and they have a great 22nd floor deck and a lobby bar. Second time staying at this hotel, and would definitely stay there again without hesitation.

Inn of Chicago

I got this hotel for a great price even though it was high tourist season in Chicago. The lobby floor is modern and well-decorated the one-bed queen room I had was a bit small/plain compared to downstairs but it's what I needed at the time, so no big deal. The elevators are tiny and move really slow - I was on the 20th floor so no trying to get to the lobby in a hurry. They have a rooftop viewing area which is absolutely gorgeous, especially at night. The hotel has a GREAT location on East Ohio Street - you're just within short walking distance of restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. If you're looking for an ultra-modern hotel with lots of amenities, this probably won't be your thing. If you're looking for comfort and convenience without the over-inflated prices of downtown boutique hotels, this is it. Note: they have free wifi but only in the lobby.

City break

I was visiting Chicago with my boyfriend for just under a week & the Inn of Chicago was perfect for our stay. The rooms were nice and staff were very friendly. Wifi isn't included in the room, but you can get free access for 30mins at a time in the lobby. Might not be the worst if you're trying to avoid being on your phone/computer anyway, but if you need to work it's a real pain. There isn't much in the way of amenities but there is a rooftop terrace on the 22nd floor which is open until 10pm and is absolutely beautiful. We only had the chance to sit out once but we went up with two glasses of wine & sat enjoying the view which is amazing and really enjoyed ourselves. A real unexpected treat. I'd definitely recommend & would stay again.

Awesome

When I was stayed this hotel, it was very low price so I worried that quality is not good. However it was very nice, room is clean, and very near to Michigan Ave. and many restaurants. WiFi needs fee.
