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.

Great location but just OK accomodation

The pictures you see on line for this hotel DO NOT match the actual decor which was tacky on the floors - rumpled hallway carpets for example. We did get a corner room with a view as requested and the room was not tiny but the bathroom was very small with stains on the tile floor. Cleanliness was just OK - at least the price was right and this is a great location for shopping, just a block away from the Miracle mile. If you don't have high expectations and want to save money you might be happy with this hotel - clean linens and comfortable bed at least...

Location,locatio,location

The location couldn't have been better. Michigan ave.was just around the corner and we could walk to almost everything we wanted to see.Hotel staff were polite and helpful.The hotel needs a bit of upgrading and I wish our room would have had a safe. Overall we were satisfied.

Great Location but...

The hotel is located in the perfect location right on the Mag Mile. However, everything else is below average. The hotel room was not as clean as one would expect (toothpaste on the bathroom wall, hair's on the toilet seat, part of a condom wrapper on the floor). There was no in room refrigerator or microwave. Then, to add insult to injury, they make you pay 14.99/per day/per device for 2Mbps WiFi Internet - Really??!? ARe you kidding me? This is 2014. Free WiFI should be standard. Even the cheap motels like Red Roof Inn and LaQuinta offer free WiFi. I would not stay here again.

Third stay and we love it,

Perfect location! Blocks away from everything you want to do in Chicago! We found the beach down the block this summer along with navy pier. Down the block from Eataly and the Mag Mile shopping. Easy walk to river and Grant Park. Skydeck morning or night perfect for coffee or cocktails. No need to spend more for your luggage storage, you'll be out all day and have a great place to sleep and recharge.

The new Eataly, best of everything, something for everyone to munch on. Stock up on fresh fruit and veggies to take to the beach!

Inn of Chicago

Inn of Chicago is a block from Michigan Avenue, north of Chicago's Loop. The staff were great... very helpful but not obtrusive. Only problem was that in a vertical building (rooms go up to the 22nd floor) you're probably going to need to use the elevator. This was particularly a problem on Saturday night when the rooftop was rented out for a private party and there was a lot of elevator traffic.

Staff was very helpful. Conveniently located with shopping/food nearby. American Girl Store was less than a mile away. Rooms were clean--no refrigerators though.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take a taxi rather than a bus when you come back from the museums. The ride back is much longer than the ride to the museums.
