I stayed in the Chicago Inn for a conference and in short, the stay was okay. It's located in the heart of downtown Chicago which is awesome. It was close to many restaurants and sights to see. That definitely was the high-light of the hotel experience.
As for the rooms, they were clean but small. You're not able to open the windows at all so it unfortunately smelled like dirty laundry. I got a very good deal on the room through hotels.com but the room was just reeked. They charge $41 for parking a day (valet; you can go and come as you please) and you also had to pay for wi-fi. Wi-fi is free if you're in the lobby, but who wants to shack up next to someone at 11pm when you just need to check your email? I would have rather they put that cost into the rooms instead of having to pay $10 per 24 hrs block of wi-fi. This may not be a problem for you but it is something I wish someone would have told me. There are other great hotels near by so check into this if it of interest to you at all.
Otherwise, the hotel was stay was average. Customer service was also lacking as well. Front desk was not very welcoming and had a demeanor of shuffling people in and out with little to no personalization of who and what "Chicago Inn at the Magnificent Mile" is all about. Oh, and the hotel itself is gorgeous in terms of decor; very modern in theme but customer service is definitely lacking.
