Contemporary style, European charm in Chicago
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, the Inn of Chicago is a gem for business or leisure travelers seeking convenient access to the Magnificent Mile and its many diversions.
Highlights
  • Prime Chicago location just east of Magnificent Mile
  • Free high-speed wireless Internet access
  • Complimentary stay for children under 18
  • The 22nd floor Skyline Terrace
Rooms
The rooms and suites at the Inn of Chicago 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. 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.
Features
Great city views might well be the most valuable cache for Chicago hotels and for the Inn of Chicago, this view comes at the Skyline Terrace on the 22nd floor. The Sky Suites also provide lofty views, while a dedicated party space accommodates up to 100 guests for weddings and other social events.

Fair price and a good place

The hotel is a inn. So, don't expect to be treated like a king, but it is functional and this is what matters. The room is not big but it is comfortable. Clean and the Location is great. Really close to the Michigan and State Avenues. The cafe beside the Hotel is a good place to take breakfast and you also have other options near it. Chicago is a wonderful city and this hotel contributes to this.

Great location but just OK accomodation

The pictures you see on line for this hotel DO NOT match the actual decor which was tacky on the floors - rumpled hallway carpets for example. We did get a corner room with a view as requested and the room was not tiny but the bathroom was very small with stains on the tile floor. Cleanliness was just OK - at least the price was right and this is a great location for shopping, just a block away from the Miracle mile. If you don't have high expectations and want to save money you might be happy with this hotel - clean linens and comfortable bed at least...

Great location, great value

Charming older hotel, if you like new and fancy, this is not for you. If appreciate good value, you like cozy small and clean room with impeccably made bed, a wooden wardrobe armoire close to Miracle Mile... look no further!

All kinds of food within walking distance. A glass of wine and some Spanish tapas? ... just a short walk away at Emilio's.

Fantastic location

This is a fantastic location just off the Magnificient Mile and a short walk to the Loop area. Reasonably priced and comfortable rooms. Room itself is reasonably sized for one or two people although decor is a little dated. Would have liked to have had the safe in the room but hotel has safe deposits behind reception. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Couples getaway

The hotel itself was very nice. The location was perfect. Our room on the other hand was not what I expected. It was small and cramped. The furniture and floor were out dated. It wasn't worth what I paid for it.
