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.

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.

Property 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.

Inn of Chicago

I got this hotel for a great price even though it was high tourist season in Chicago. The lobby floor is modern and well-decorated the one-bed queen room I had was a bit small/plain compared to downstairs but it's what I needed at the time, so no big deal. The elevators are tiny and move really slow - I was on the 20th floor so no trying to get to the lobby in a hurry. They have a rooftop viewing area which is absolutely gorgeous, especially at night. The hotel has a GREAT location on East Ohio Street - you're just within short walking distance of restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. If you're looking for an ultra-modern hotel with lots of amenities, this probably won't be your thing. If you're looking for comfort and convenience without the over-inflated prices of downtown boutique hotels, this is it. Note: they have free wifi but only in the lobby.

Awesome

When I was stayed this hotel, it was very low price so I worried that quality is not good. However it was very nice, room is clean, and very near to Michigan Ave. and many restaurants. WiFi needs fee.

wonderful trip

The Inn of Chicago is a wonderful hotel full of excellent staff and service. It is is the best location possible for shopping and dining experiences. I could not have picked a better hotel. The only thing thst I did not like is that it did not offer a continental breakfast.

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.
