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.

Nice and clean

I like this hotel a lot. The room was small but enough for one person, the bathroom was the tiniest I've seen anywhere, but again, its ok when there is only one person in a queen bed room. I had a great time there, the staff was very nice and accommodating, especially the housekeeper Pernita who is also a very lovely, positive and charming lady to talk to and did a great job with cleaning my room. I love the rooftop terrace on the 22nd floor. It would be nice if they could open a bar up there that would offer coffee, wine, beer and liquor only, Maybe.....:) Overall, its a nice hotel and I would definitely come back in couple of months.

Great location, average conditions

Could not have chosen a better situated hotel in Chicago. Hotel is located around the corner from Magnificent Mile and approximately four blocks from Navy Pier.

Great location...but..

The location of the hotel was amazing, right in the middle of everything walkin distance to the park, the riverwalk and tons of restaurants and bars. However, it DOES NOT HAVE FREE WIFI. I wish someone had mentioned that before because I really needed it. Also, the bedrooms had a constant humidity smell and were just fairly clean. Nothing out of the ordinary hotel, but since we didn't spend much time there the greatest value was on the location.

Wonderful Experience

The location of this hotel was absolutely perfect. We were within walking distance to Michigan Ave., as well as the Navy Pier. We had no troubles locating top rated and fabulous restaurants within walking distance as well. The staff was super friendly, the room was clean and rather roomy (we stayed in a double room). The bathroom was on the small side, and had no exhaust vent, but that didn't put a damper on our trip. Beds were comfy, and room temperature control was easy and worked well. Great place to stay.

The hotel was NOTHING as per website

The hotel was in a great location but that was all. There were no amenities; the phone/clock did not work and notified the staff - they were never fixed; the rugs were ragged; there were extra comforts for the amount we paid but Vic the conceirge was great. I would not go back to this hotel.
