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. The Sky Suites also provide lofty views, while a dedicated party space accommodates up to 100 guests for weddings and other social events.

Great stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Inn of Chicago. The staff was attentive and friendly, rooms were clean and location was very centralized. Yes, the bathroom IS SMALL but not important to us. Very affordable and would definitely recommend.

Great location and clean rooms

We had a king bed room, very clean and I thought somewhat spacious for downtown chicago. Most rooms I've stayed in are just enough room to get around the bed and to the bathroom. Great location, just east of Michigan Avenue and right in the middle on MI Ave so that it's an equal walk North-South to all the shops. They have a GREAT terrace top relaxation area to overlook the city which was great, but no bar service so bring your own cocktails or beverages! The only little complaint we had with this hotel is that their bed sheets are almost starched. They crinkle and make noise when you roll around on them, were not as smooth as we liked. Personal preference I guess. Otherwise great everything else!

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.

a great surprise

This was a wonderful stay! The hotel was far nicer than I expected! When we arrived, they only had 2 rooms listed instead of the three that I had requested and paid for. The attendant quickly, efficiently, and cheerfully corrected the problem and we moved on to a wonderful stay. I don't think you could ask for a better location. Close to restaurants, shopping, Magnificent mile. Only a few blocks from the red line. I'd definitely stay there again. Dan
