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.

Elegant, comfortable, and friendly!

Came into town for a one-day conference the next day. Had an awful flight, 2-hr trip from the airport, arrived harried and exhausted--the staff immediately said, "We have to make your day better!" and upgraded my room for free. The accommodations were elegant (I stole some ideas), extremely comfortable, and clean. I even loved the orange-scented soaps. Much nicer than I expected, with beautiful views from the terrace and a happy hour with free (and good!) wine. Lobby cafe does very good coffee and an incredible croissant for breakfast...felt very European. I felt positively pampered after just one night here....MUST come back with my spouse!

Chicago Chop House has great steaks, for which you will pay a premium. Old-boyish restaurant feel, sides served family style. A great treat--the perfectly cooked and well aged steaks will have carnivores moaning with delight. Until the bill comes.

Excellent value and perfect location

I've stayed at the Inn of Chicago twice, once for a getaway weekend and once for a conference. It's the perfect location in Chicago, close to everything. It's the best value, too. Yes, the bathrooms are small, but if you're in the best location in Chicago, who cares about the bathroom, get out and do stuff!
