Our recent stay at the Inn of Chicago was perfect. The room was small - one double bed but very clean. Elevators are also quite small but not a problem for us, just increased the wait sometimes as they tended to fill up quickly. Shower pressure was excellent with lots of hot water. Not fancy but when you want to... More

We booked 2 nights here for a weekend getaway. Other than the convenient location (could walk the Mag Mile and to Navy Pier easily) it was really not what we expected!

I have stayed at the Inn of Chicago many times but this is my first review. I have never had a bad experience at this hotel. It is an older hotel so the rooms are small and the elevators are very small (if it is busy there can be a short wait for an elevator) but I like that about... More

Great location and used the room mainly as a spot for sleep. Was a bit put off that I could perfectly hear the room next door through the bathroom vent. Close to breakfast joints, Mag Mile, and bus stops. Will most likely book this hotel again for our next trip because of price and location.

Neighbourhood 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.
