We enjoyed our stay at this hotel located off Michigan Avenue - there was a nice little cafe in the building - Lavazza, a wonderful rooftop view (it would be nice to have a bar up there) but people did the BYOB thing and seemed to be having a great time. It's clean, comfortable - nothing fancy but you're not... More

Dear jazzgoddess, We are delighted to hear that you felt the Inn of Chicago was "convenient and convivial". Those words greatly sum up our hotel and what we have to offer our guests. Sounds like you really enjoyed our rooftop atmosphere during your stay. Just to inform you, we do have a bar available during the summer months from Thursday... More

We stayed four nights here on a family trip to Chicago. The location is excellent - in the block just off the Magnificent Mile. This is an older hotel that has been remodeled very nicely but the rooms and bathrooms are small. The staff was excellent. This is a good value for the price.

Dear Dave59871, Thank you for taking the time to provide your comments. Yes, we too can agree that our location is second to none when it comes to being right next to the Magnificent Mile. This is why many guests keep coming back to us, since shopping is right outside our doorstep. Since we are an older boutique hotel, our... More

I had a room here for two nights while attending a conference next-door at the Marriott Courtyard. Got a reasonably-priced room here (reasonably-priced for central Chicago at least) and it about met expectations. Good: location is excellent, very convenient to the Magnificent Mile. The room was clean as expected, no complaints on that. Fairly standard 3* hotel room bed, furniture... More

Dear Marcgr, Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed our central location to your conference as well as the Magnificent Mile.

I thought I was checking into a nice boutique hotel but had a very different experience. I shy away from negative reviews because a single bad day can stay with an establishment for a long time. When my assistant pulled up this property online, the pictures looked good, the location is good and the price (250 bucks) sounded like it... More

This hotel was clean and comfortable. The location was great! Navy Pier was in walking distance. We were here on our mini-honeymoon. We loved the decor of the lobby and our room.

Only good thing about this hotel is the location. The room was large enough, but the bathroom was very small. The stool was old and too low, the sink was small and very low. My wife made it a point to use the bathrooms in restruants and lounges when possible instead of in our room. Won't stay again. Much better... More

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.
