I always stay at the Inn of Chicago because of its location which is walking distance to the conference I attend on an annual basis. Their rates are always affordable. However, being a classic yet contemporary establishment, sometimes little improvements are still needed. My experiences with this hotel have included having the front desk call for maintenance (on separate occasions)... More

I stayed here for 2 nights back in July 2014 with a girlfriend when we were up from Detroit in town for a concert. The hotel is very beautiful and very old. The elevators are extremely small but I have to say, it added a neat charm to it. The rooms were very small and the bathroom even smaller. We... More

I recently stayed for several nights while visiting a relative who was receiving treatment at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The lobby is very nice, but the room (double queen bed) was extremely small, even by Chicago standards. The entrance to the room was barely large enough to walk in and take your coat off. The bathroom I felt was unacceptable for... More

RUN AWAY and RUN FAST! Room looked nothing like the sample pictures they show. We stayed in room #1126 and it was seriously disgusting! Dirty floors (we found bobby pins and trash), you couldn't rent movies in room. Dirty and old!

Checked in early, front desk staff was very friendly and professional. Room was nice, corner room with the lake in sight. Hotel is located within walking distance of subway system so it's easy to get around. Other reviews indicate the hotel could use an upgrade, which is probably true in the hallways, but room was nice. No refrigerator, which is... More

seamus73-- Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed the lake views from your guest room and close proximity to public transit. It disappoints us to learn of the challenges you encountered with the internet connection, and hope this did not diminish your overall experience at the Inn of Chicago. We look forward to welcoming you back... More

The hotel was okay. The lobby was nice but the rooms is a little outdated. The rooms didn't look like the pictures. We just stayed for one night just somewhere to sleep. Location is perfect! The staff is friendly. It's a hotel if you just need somewhere to sleep.

I researched the area and other hotels based on price and location and of course reviews. This was an awesome stay. I recommend The Inn of Chicago. I was not disappointed at all. Great staff the bellman helped me arrange transportation to my next destination in Illinois. Only thing is the walls are a little thin. Luckily I sleep with... More

I booked this hotel mostly because I was excited about the opportunity to stay on a historic hotel. When I checked in my room was ready. The service was courteous without being in your face. My room, 1221, was very comfortable and extremely clean. It doesn't look like the pics on their website, but rather standard like a Travelodge. Certainly... More

I found this his little gem on "another website" as a one-off special deal. My stay was a one-nighter on the way back from the west coast. The reason for my NEED to spend a night in Chicago had disappeared, but I made the stop as an option anyway. I am so glad I did. Clean comfortable room, chic lobby... More
