This was our first time at the Inn. I had a Travelzoo rate of $86 and couldn't pass it up. My husband wasn't all that sure, because we usually stay at larger hotels for our annual Chicago Christmas weekend .. but my daughter and I had stayed at Boutique hotels a couple other times and didn't mind the size.

I've actually stayed here many times as they offer fab deals.....but my last may have been the last. My room was bigger than usual..I've learned to get two beds as they're much bigger...and I had 2 big windows facing east. Unfortunately my room was right across from the elevator. Without any individual climate control in the room (yeah, you read... More

My experience seems to trend with previous reviews: the best part of this hotel is clearly the location. Maybe 50 steps from Michigan Ave and only a few blocks from Navy Pier, the location can't be beat. If you get a good rate, I'd say it's worth staying here unless you plan to spend much time in your room. The... More

50in50--Thank you for your comprehensive review. We are truly proud to be just only steps from the Magnificent Mile. The Inn of Chicago's historic charm separates us from the rest downtown. We are glad you discovered the 22nd floor skyline terrace during your stay. Your comments about the vending machine inventory will be shared internally, and we appreciate you bringing... More

This is an adequate hotel if you want to be close to shopping the Magnificent Mile. However, the room was very small and needs updated. But for the money it was clean. Clean sheets and towels. If you're not spending much time in your room it's OK. We did have a bad experience with the valet service. When they delivered... More

I had read previous reviews, and was actually a little worried prior to arriving. My husband and I were happy with our stay here. We had an end room which looked to be a bit larger than some of the others. The lobby is updated. However, the rooms need updating. Old carpet, small rooms, small bathrooms, but efficient. The location... More

Stay at your own risk! This hotel is very close to the mag mile & has a beautiful lobby BUT the rooms are incredibly small/ nothing like the pictures advertised.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The rooms are cramped, extremely dirty and downright unpleasant. They look NOTHING like the photos. (I'm not one to use all-caps willy nilly...in this case, it is warranted.) No nice bedding, no throw pillows, no fresh coat of paint. I'm sure the photos don't include the crumbs all over the carpet.

It was right off the mag mile! And wasnt a bad price. I thiught the rooms were decent since we were out and about. We did call down to the front desk once and they were very rude! Other than that the rest of the employees were nice. I would definitely stay there again....mainly for the location!

Karli T-- We are happy that you found our location to be perfect! The inhospitable behavior that you experienced during your recent stay is completely unacceptable, and we will certainly review your observations with the team as this is not our standard. We look forward to welcoming you back again! More

I'm sure many have stayed at a hotel in Chicago and know that it varies from Good to Best - this is an old hotel with basic services and a high price with no place to park, parking down the block for $49.00 a day. - We had a clean bed and clean towel - the water was not hot.... More

Really nice building with character. Could do with a bit of updating (e.g. the carpets and the corridors could do with a bit of sprucing up. However rooms were perfectly adequate and clean enough.
