The Old Chicago Inn is decorated with period furniture; for instance, the breakfast room recreates a prohibition-era speakeasy. I've stayed at the Inn a few times and have noticed the rooms vary, with some being spacious with large windows and others cozier and more secluded. The staff works hard to help the guests feel comfortable. The neighborhood is vibrant and... More

Skip the Loop and Michigan Ave tourist traps - the best parts of Chicago are the neighborhoods. I surprised my girlfriend with a little getaway to the Old Chicago Inn and it was perfect. Booking was incredibly easy, David the innkeeper helped us out with an odd arrival time and made sure we were looked after. Our favorite part: Room... More

We enjoyed the ambiance of The Old Chicago Inn. David the innkeeper and Luke the bartender made it an experience of Old Chicago. David made a delicious breakfast and Luke made wonderful drinks from the Prohibition period in Chicago at Room 13. The Speak Easy hospitality was fun and jazzman Vincent provided some great music on the piano. We'll be... More

I recently spent 2 nights at the Inn. It is a great place to stay and the location in Lakeview area is ideal. The Inn Keeper David is warm and very attentive. The rooms are very quiet and comfortable. I would stay here again. It felt like being at home!

It is a great place to stay. The innkeeper is an amazing guy. He has the charm of a southern gentleman. Whenever someone comes in I tell them to stay there because the neighborhood has energy all times of the year but if you want quiet you can retreat to the inn and sit around the fireplace or in the...

I had the opportunity to enjoy an evening at Room 13 (downstairs speakeasy) then stay at the Old Chicago Inn recently. One of my favorite parts of the whole experience was breakfast the next morning. David is such a great host, and it seems there are always other interesting guests from places around the world. Can't wait for my next... More

the breakfast turned out to be extremely simple, the room had no view at all, there were no bedside lights, the toilet pot stood loose on the pipe, the house and room was smelly, there was a lot of noise at night of people chatting laughing and shouting. This would have been acceptable, but at - max- half the price.

This is an older building renovated for a B&B. Many antiques decorate the premises. The innkeeper is quite gracious and friendly. A continental breakfast is provided but on the weekend the innkeeper made a delicious egg & sausage casserole and baked his own loaf bread. Accommodations were small but clean & comfortable. Some rooms have a "nearby" bath, some do... More

It's not too expensive and very central, makes it fantastic for visiting or shopping in Chicago! Room was clean and people there very helpful. Rooms are a bit small but it's to be expected in an old building in central Chicago.

First of all, walking up to the building somewhat resembled the street the Cosby's lived on. It is also very close to the CTA bus and train station. Our room was small but cozy, no closet space. The man who ran the inn was very helpful and informative. For the price and location, I would definitely stay there if and... More
