Days Inn Chicago Rating: 2.5 Pearls
Lincoln Park, Chicago, Illinois

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Rock-and-roll history
  • Near Wrigley Field and the Lincoln Park Zoo
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Free breakfast
  • On-site fitness center

Cons

  • Some rooms have tube TVs
  • No room service or restaurant
  • No business center

Bottom Line

For a Days Inn, this 133-room hotel has a lot of history: It used to be known as the Rock and Roll Days Inn, and had many famous bands and musicians coming through. It offers solid freebies -- Wi-Fi, breakfast, fitness center passes, and on-site fitness center access -- and the rooms are clean and comfortable (if a little basic -- which is to be expected for the price). But the Lincoln Park location is far from most tourist sights.

Oyster Hotel Review

The Days Inn Chicago, located in a historic 1920s building, was once known as the Rock and Roll Days Inn: Famous past guests include Kurt Cobain, Sheryl Crowe, Radiohead, the Dave Matthews Band, and the Goo Goo Dolls. What the hotel lacks in features, it tries to make up for with history and freebies: Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, free gym passes (plus a fitness center on-site), and a free continental breakfast.
