This was a nice hotel. Nothing fancy, comfortable, great location. Rooms are a little dated but clean. Hardest obstacle was 3 girls getting ready with no sink room for anything. Small shelf might be nice in the bathrooms . Bar area is small but very friendly staff. Well worth it.

My wife and I stayed here for an entire week and we enjoyed every minute. The hotel is old, but has a unique decor to it. The staff was very polite and educated on area. Every question small or large was addressed with a smile. We did have issues with ordering movies, but management addressed it promptly. We were compensated... More

If you travel to Chicago for fun, shopping, dining, a getaway, and enjoy a touch of luxury this is NOT the hotel to stay at. The lobby is misleading-it looks nice! But the rooms are small and tired, and the beds are the same. Spend a little more and you won't feel like you were sentenced to this hotel.

ChicagoIsabella-- We regret to learn if our hotel was not the best fit for you during your recent trip to Chicago. Please be aware that we do offer wide selection of guest room layouts throughout our hotel. Since we are categorized as a historic boutique hotel, some of our rooms are more intimate in size than other cookie-cutter hotels nearby. More

I got a good deal for this hotel in winter, it had magnificent view of the mag mile neighborhood. This must be one of the best hotel of the area in 1930's or in its earlier age. It will definitely give you the feeling of that "ethnic" Chicago lifestyle.

The hotel is located perfectly off of Michigan Avenue on Ohio. It doesn't get better when I want to walk to all my meetings. The front desk staff was professional, helpful and wonderfully pleasant. Fun stops there. The rooms are typical of an old building in Down Town urban center USA. Small. The door is not as secure as I... More

I booked this hotel through priceline.com on the negotiator app- roughly came out to $60 for the night. The location cannoT be beat! Central to everything on the Magnificent Mile. the basic rooms are pretty small. I travel alone, so it doesn't make a huge difference to me, but ask for a free upgrade to a larger room (never hurts...)... More

I was put in a room on the 21st floor facing Michigan ave inbetween two buildings. The room was small but clean and... More

Location is great. Lobby has been renovated but rooms have not. Wifi only available in the Lobby. So the Lobby was the hang out, everyone with their gadgets. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Short walk to the Mag Mile and bus routes and walking distance to the Navy Pier. Staff were friendly but some a little stand offish. Great outside... More

The Inn of Chicago is an excellent choice of accommodation for anyone who is out for fun. We go to Chicago for an occasional weekend of goofing around and having fun. We DON'T spend much time in the room. You are surrounded by excellent restaurants, bars, breweries, sightseeing, shopping, theatres, museums, and architecture. If that were not the case, we... More

Convenient to most attractions and restaurants. While the furnishings and interior are dated i had a nice stay for five days. Staff were very friendly and helpful and I did not hear of any complaints. Would stay there again, rooms are not spacious as the landmark hotels are.
