Steps from the Magnificent Mile, and walking distance from Metro, watertower area and Museum of Modern Art. Our corner room was spacious and well lit. Surprisingly quiet for downtown. In room coffee, but none in the lobby and no other extras. Still a great value for the price. Across the street are a 7-11, Dunkin' Donuts, and Burrito Beach.

We were here on business for a conference at the nearby Marriott. Location is great, but that's really it. We had a penthouse room with "direct access to the roof deck," but the door from our room was locked, permanently, so access was only possible through the hallway entrance. We were awakened at 4 am Sunday morning smelling smoke, then quickly realized it was from two idiots smoking cigars in the HALLWAY!
The comfortable bed was actually Murphy fold-out bed, which was, well, odd, and there was no dresser or armoire in the room, so it seems to function more as a hospitality suite when the doors to the adjacent room are unlocked. All in all, pretty drab. Lobby bar is dreadful, with a surly bartender, blaring techno music, and no sense of place whatsoever. All in all, very disappointed and won't return here. You can do better even at the Hilton Garden Inn nearby.

Room Tip: Rooftop rooms get rooftop deck visitor noise, as in drinkers and smokers drinking and smoking. You...

Dear neilandjeanne,
Thank you for your review. We hope you had a successful conference event during your recent trip to Chicago. Our sincere apologies for the cigar smoke fumes you detected from your guest room. We can certainly understand your frustration with this and appreciate you bringing to our attention. It sounds as though the penthouse suite was not to your liking, and we sincerely apologize. We hope you find accommodations that better suit you on your return trip to Chicago.
Best,

The hotel is not new but it is well maintained. I can't complain about the location, only a couple of blocks to Magnificent Mile, Restaurants, and other sights are within walking distance. The rooms are clean, and quite. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Booked this hotel through lastminutetravel.com. Got a great price for two nights. Hotel was in a great area of Chicago. Within walking distance to the Navy Pier and shops on Michigan Ave. It is about a 10 minute walk to the train station if you are looking to head to a Cubs or ChiSox game. The room was basic but very clean. If you like to work out, the gym on the third floor was perfect. They had free weights and a few treadmills. I would definitely stay here again. BUT BEWARE OF THE CRAZY PARKING PRICES IN CHICAGO.

Room Tip: The basic rooms are small. If you have a choice, book a suite. It might be worth it.

I have stayed at the Inn of Chicago many times. The rooms are nothing extraordinary. They are small with no extra ammenities. (Not even free wi-fi.) The place is not expensive and I think reasonable for what is offered. The walls are a bit thin so be prepared to hear everything going on in the next room. The hotel is in the perfect place, walking distance to shopping and even Navy Pier if you want to walk a little farther. There are a bunch of good restaurants nearby. After a long day out walking around or even a long day at the office the martinis at the Inn Bar are a welcome treat.
