Try taking 47 high school students and 5 chaperones to Chi-Town from Atlanta by bus. We needed a place that was centrally located in order to accommodate our agenda of places to visit and this was it! A nice, clean, well-kept facility with an extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Lots of places to eat, snack... More

Our room wasn't cleaned properly. There were spots on the floor an old razor cap and crumbs of some dirt on the floor. The television was dusty. On Tuesday evening when we returned they hadn't emptied our trash and left two used wash rags in the bathroom. I was truly upset.I had heard bad reviews about the hotel, but chose... More

There are high points and low points to this hotel, but my advice is don't waste your money staying here. My assessment of the highs and lows are based on my experience and the room I had...others may have a different experience. First, the highs. 1) it is in a good, central location. 2) It has a nice(ish) lobby. 3)... More

The location is terrific and the employees are nice but the rooms leave a little to be desired. The rooms could use a little TLC and the bathrooms could use an upgrade. The price is right and the lounge in the lobby is nicely done.

I've stayed in nicer Motel 6's. It should have been renovated 5 years ago, so it's really bad now. Two little glass shelves in the bathroom, no counter tops, so don't bring much in the way of toiletries or makeup unless you enjoy living out fo a suitcase. The "closet" clothes rack is all of 16 inches long, so don't... More

We are not your typical cookie cutter hotel where all the rooms are the exact same. We pride our selves on providing friendly and authentic service to our... More

This hotel is wonderful. It's all you need and more. Greatest location in Chicago. Nice rooms, clean, efficient. Reminds me of many hotels in UK. Small bathroom just like Europe. Very European style. Nice lobby, cozy bar. Very helpful staff. Part of Choice Hotels rewards. That's also a plus if you are a member, you get perks. Bedding nice, comfy.... More

This hotel is in a great location, less than one block from Michigan Avenue. However, the rooms are cramped, outdated, and uncomfortable. The hotel is badly in need of renovation... Additionally, you can hear a lot of street noise, which is not unusual for Chicago but it can make it difficult to sleep.

mattjd74-- Thank you for your review. We regret if you found our guest room to be cramped and uncomfortable during your stay. Next time you return to Chicago, we invite you to try one of our many other room types and highly recommend asking for ear plugs to help drown out some of the city noises. More

This hotel has a great location, close to Mag Mile, museums, Navy Pier activities etc. Nice restaurants on the block & next block. The room was basic, a little shabby in places, but comfortable. If you're looking for the gym it's on the 3rd floor - the elevators are small & likely to be so crowded you can't see the... More

I stay at all kinds of hotels and dont mind inconvenience or poor conditions. This hotel rivalled the worst I have ever experienced with lousy layout, broken furniture, ever changing water pressure, peeling wallpaper, and not even access to a local public TV station on the TV. If I were paying $39 a night it would be OK, but the... More

Richard G--We sincerely regret to learn if our accommodations were not the best fit for you during your time here. The Inn of Chicago prides itself on its unique historic charm, central location, and great price proposition. We do offer many local television channels and it sounds as if you experienced some technical issues with your in-room TV. It is... More

I stayed in this hotel this week and was so disappointed when I arrived. The hotel is extremely old and my room looked nothing like the pictures on the website. However, I was appalled to arrive in my room after work on Tuesday to discover my watch missing. I filed an incident report and a police report. Fortunately, my watch... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
