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.

Uniformed Unconcerned staff

We had trouble getting the TV to work initially. Tried to rent a movie one night and just stay in and rest from all the site seeing. We rented and paid for a movie we did not get to see because of the TV problem. Also, the hotel does not have a shuttle to and from the airport but they did tell us they could get us a flat rate of $40.00 for both of us to get back to the airport via cab. We got the cab the morning we left but the cab driver said the hotel staff lied about the fare. We had to pay the cab driver $56.00. We will not stay there again.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

The hotel is a very long way away from the aquarium and planetarium. Not too close to the blue line subway either. The Blue line subway will take you to and from Ohare airport.

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 Stay for Shopping on Michigan Avenue

A perfect location if you want quick access to the Magnificent Mile shops. The hotel staff was friendly and helped me get a taxi back to the hotel when we were stuck out in the suburbs. The bathroom sink did not have a counter, so I found it a challenge to put on makeup, etc. The room temp. was set at 64 degrees and I couldn't get it increase at all. We enjoyed the cafe in the hotel for coffee and pastries, and it was a charming older hotel.

Great for short stay.

The hotel was clean and we found the room comfortable although small. The only complaints we had were a noisy air-conditioning unit in our room, and we could overhear other guests late at night laughing and talking noisily as they traversed the corridor nearby our room. Overall we had an enjoyable stay during our short 3 day visit to Chicago.
