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, 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.
Highlights
  • Prime Chicago location just east of Magnificent Mile
  • Free wireless Internet access in the lobby
  • Complimentary stay for children under 18
  • The 22nd floor Skyline Terrace
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.
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.

Awesome location

The hotel was very nice and the location was just perfect. I was visiting Chicago for the first time with my girlfriend and everything was clean and the service was very good. We basically walked everywhere from the hotel since the location is very good and we did not rent a car.

Great Location

Location couldn't be better, but the rooms are extremely small and old, outdated, not very clean. Furniture was old and half broken, bed was completely miserable. Hallways are loud and you can hear everything. The staff really doesn't have the time or care to be bothered with being courteous to guests, when asking for directions we we're told to look it up for ourselves, or when asking for extra towels we were told to ask the housekeeper on our floor. The bartender was very nice and made an excellent drink. I'll stay somewhere else next time, this wasn't worth it.

New Years Trip

This hotel is located within walking distance of many area Chicago tourist attractions. The hotel is also lacked near the CTA train stations. The staff was nice and the room was ok for the price.
