Historical Traveller Reviews of Inn of Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel

Central Location

from jjvan123
Arrived Wed at about 1 P.M. and were able to check right in. Room was typical hotel room, 2dbl beds, armoire with TV and storage for small suitcase,and 3 drawers. Room was on 7th floor with decent view to south. Staff was helpful in answering our questions concerning siteseeing and arranging for a van type cab to take 7 people to the train station. The location of the hotel is great for shopping on Mich.Ave or walking to Navy Pier, or hitting the beach. The rooms and halls have recently been renovated and are clean and comfortable. A patio area on the roof, 22nd floor, provides a nice view of the surrounding area, including the lake, the NBC building and the Hancock Tower. The coulple of negative items are no exhaust fan in the bathroom, and no fitted sheets on the beds. Across the street are restaurants and convience stores.

Great hotel for the price and LOCATION

I stayed here just this past weekend and have to say for my first time in Chicago, the Best Western was a great value for the location. ($112 a night). Our intent was to find a place that was clean and friendly, nothing fancy or over catered......just a nice place to rest your head after being out and about all day........and Best Western Inn was great. It was clean, beds were of average hotel comfort, the hotel was very quiet and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The only real down sides I think most people will find is that the room is a tad small as is the bathroom. The location is awesome, right in the heart of the Magnificient Mile. The restaurant across the street "The Cambridge House" is perfect for breakfast The food is fast, affordable and most importantly tastes great. Also anyone visiting Chicago has to eat at the "Cheesecake Factory" cheescake and the best food I have ever tasted!!

Yes this is no 5 star fancy all out hotel, but if your looking for a friendly, clean, simple hotel thats affordable and in a great location, this is a great choice.

great hotel for the money

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just returned from 4 days at the Best Western Inn of Chicago. I had over-analyzed the reviews on this and other websites prior to booking, but my concerns were put to rest the moment we arrived. Yes the suites, bathrooms and elevators are small - it is an old hotel. But the service was excellent, the hotel was clean, and the location cannot be beat! Just steps from the Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier, restaurants, theatre, shopping... I would recommend this hotel to family and friends, and will definitely be staying there when I return to this beautiful city!

Thanks Best Western Inn of Chicago!

Last weekend was our one year anniversary and my first trip to Chicago. The Best Western Inn of Chicago upgraded us to a beautiful suite on the 22nd floor - completely unexpected! The room was large, clean, and quiet. We had a beautiful view of the city and Lake Michigan. They have a wonderful observation deck as well. We were centrally located well within walking distance to great restaurants, the Miracle Mile, and Navy Pier. The staff was friendly and helpful. We recommend the Best Western Inn of Chicago to anyone who wants quality and value.

We loved the hotel and the city of Chicago!

My husband and I just returned from Chicago. We were in town for three nights and stayed at the Best Western. First of all, it is in a great location. We loved being able to walk everywhere. It is extremely close to the Navy Pier. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We were on the 16th floor. Second of all, the city of Chicago was amazing--everyone was so friendly--we loved our trip! You can walk to the John Hancock building from the hotel. We would absolutely stay here again.

Great Value!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I just returned from the Best Western Inn and we thought it was an excellent value. At $105 per night, which was over the Memorial Holiday weekend, we thought the room was clean, nicely decorated and in an excellent location. The rooms are on the small side, as is the bathroom, but this is the perfect hotel for those who want to stay in a nice, well located hotel and save their money for shopping and dining! Across the street is Cambridge House restaurant, which is a great place for breakfast before heading out for the day. There is also a convenience store across the street and Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin Robbins next door.

Good Price - Great Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel was a great price and in a perfect location. Short and visually interesting walks to shopping, dining and Navy Pier. The staff were very helpful and friendly, although the front desk seems to be understaffed. I was on the 3rd floor and although the room was small it was clean and sufficient for one or two people. The upper floors were much nicer and the rooms were more up to date.

Complaints are: Extremely slow elevators - you could be waiting up to five minutes for one; the stairways were too dark and a little creepy to use; Noise from other rooms and the hallways could be heard clearly from inside your room - I could hear my neighbour's conversations clearly from my room; Ice and pop machines on every floor would definitely be an advantage - especially since the elevators are too slow and the stairways are creepy!

Overall this hotel was good for the price and I would stay here again.

Mixed Review for a May 2004 Stay

from libertyproject
This property has its positives and negatives.

On the plus side, the location is wonderful, just 1/2 block from Michigan Ave, 2 blocks from the Wrigley Building and about a 1 mile walk from the entrance of the Navy Pier.

Floors 21 and 22 were well appointed and clean. My room 2112 was clean, yet small.

Room service arrived quickly and tasty, and the staff were friendly. Lastly, there is a wonderful terrace on the 22nd floor in which you can bring your own lunch, drinks, etc and enjoy the city skyline day or night (open until 10pm).

On the negative side, you are reminded it is a Best Western. The water pressure was low, you have to wait for a bellman and front desk person because they are understaffed.

My bathroom was small, as in just large enough for 1 person. In addition the windows in my room did not open, so fresh air was a problem.

Floors 3-20 need renovating with some floors not looking so clean. Each of the 3 elevators were very small, the public areas were hot (no fresh air circulation), the exterior of the building itself is wonderful but needs a good power washing, ice machines are on every other floor, and noise from the hallway and other rooms was a problem.

If you stay here, request a room away from the following: Ice and soda machines, elevators and the entrance to the terrace on the 22nd floor.

Bottom line, I paid $105 per night for a king room that was small, yet well appointed. For a budget hotel, if location is more important than a good shower, then so long as you stay on the 21 or 22nd floor the value is wonderful.

If however you need service or stay on floors 3-20, I would suggest looking into the Courtyard by Marriott or the Red Roof Inn, both of which have equally good locations and look more refreshing and clean.

The property is owned by Shell Hospitality, and on their website it states that the property was renovated in 2003, but other than floors 21 and 22, I did not see where the renovation looked new.

above average

My husband, daughter and I stayed at the B.W. Inn of Chicago FEb. 20th for 3 nights. As a travel agent I have stayed in many hotels over the years. I read the reviews before booking and was very pleased with this hotel. As other people have stated the staff at this property are very helpful and courtious. We did have a deluxe room, which was very tastefully done, the bathroom was small, but not that small!! There is a little shelf to put your makeup bag on. For the price and location this is a very nice hotel and I would definately stay there again.

Best Value For A Prime Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is not as plush as the Drake or the Four Seasons, but it's in a prime location, just off the Magnificant Mile. The building is quite old (from the 1930's), but has been renovated and has a charming quality about it. The rooms are smaller than average, as are the bathrooms. Most of the rooms have great views of the surrounding cityscape. There is a nice little coffee shop just off the lobby, as well as a cozy little bar. There is a White Hen convenience store just accross the street, and a nice, affordable family-style restraunt next door to that. The location can not be beat. Michigan Avenue is steps away going west, and the lakefront and Navy Pier is just a few blocks to the east. The area is surronded by fabulous restraunts and of course, some of the best shopping IN THE WORLD. The hotel was quite clean, the service was above average, and the price could not be beat.
Use your AAA card for discount on room rate. I have stayed at more then 20 hotels in and around the city over the years. For the price and location, this hotel is the best value in the city.
