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.

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.

Get what you pay for...

I will start with the positive. The location is perfect for everything, shopping, dining and more. Everything is walking distance and once you start walking from here to there you won't stop so keep comfy shoes in mind. The staff members were most helpful with making sure you're comfortable. Now the real deal, if your traveling light and don't need much room feel free to make the mistake I did and just get the "Standard Queen" room DO BE FOOLISH!!! If you want to feel like your visiting a prison cell have at it but instead get the King size bed it provides you will more space for the room but my goodness the bathrooms are so dang small. You want to have a romantic shower or brush your teeth together lol yea not a chance. Anyway all and all is was a great location and alright stay. Oh P.S. You will be paying $15 a night for wifi if you don't want to hangout in the lobby using the free wifi with the rest of the guests.

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.
