Convenient - small

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 17, 2008

Inn of Chicago is half a block of the southern end of Northern Michigan - near stores, busses, convenient to the trains. Very easy to get to major sights, and not at all difficult to get anywhere.
Bathroom was tiny, and there's not much room to store clothes for a longer stay. Very utilitarian. Looks as if a makeover was done some years ago but is now looking worn ( our TP holder was broken). Service - OK - maids didn't always clean, leave more coffee, kleenex ---

Amenities - limited- coffeeshop off lobby, and small bar. Not a "destination" but it works well for sightseeingwalking was enough. Never checked the exercise facilities....

Price seemed steep for the hotel quality, but average for the location (and we made arrangements fairly close to travel).

Unique Quality: Location.

Directions: Magnificent Mile- downtown, just n of River

Be wary

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 24, 2007

From the looks of the website, this looks like a very cute "boutique hotel". The lobby fits the image protrayed online, but be wary. There are only a few rooms on the lower level "executive rooms" that actually look like the ones they show online. The rest range from grimy shoe box to large and very outdated. For $98 a night like one reviewer stated they paid - I think it's a great deal. I think the max I'd pay for an exec room is $150 and I travel A LOT. In NYC, this room MAY go for $200, but that's pushing it - and I am speaking of the exec room. I am not sure which level ends the exec level, but just be specific about what you're booking.

Unique Quality: The website is the best part about this hotel.

Directions: 1/2 mile from Miracle Mile. (Interesting that they're 1/2 mile from Miracle Mile, yet Miracle Mile is in the hotel name ... should have been the first tip off!)

The Best Western Inn of...

by written on August 24, 2002

The Best Western Inn of Chicago is a wonderful hotel about a 1/2 block down from Michigan Ave. (within walking distance to Starbucks, Eddie Bauer, Gap, and all the other wonderful shops on the Magnificent Mile) It has great prices (smaller rooms, but VERY comfortable) and a wonderful restaurant attached. The staff is also very terrific (very friendly, even on the big holiday shopping weekends). I would suggest looking into this hotel if you are planning a weekend in Chicago.
Price ranges between $98 USD and goes up from there.
