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.

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.

perfect location

The best part of my stay at this hotel is the service from the employees and the incredible location! I would definitely get a room with a king size bed as opposed to a standard room with 2 beds. Quite a difference in space and decor. The concierge gave great info on places to dine and things to do.

Great Affordable Location

I would say that the location was superb! The hotel staff was friendly and they have a nice personal touch through their text messaging service. The room was clean, but not decorated fancy and the beds were so-so comfortable. If you are just looking for a place to crash for the night and be in a great location then i would recommend it. After all you are not in Chicago to sit in your room! There is a cool sky deck on the top floor to bring your drink from the bar up to and it is a cool view of the city.

Nice location

The location is very convenient. There are also many stores and restaurants around. The lack of free WiFi in the room is a minus.

good stay for a reasonable price

this hotel is in a great location, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are extremely basic, but so long as you have a lot planned, you won't notice.
