Dog Friendly Confines at the Old Chicago Inn

Do you love to travel with your best four-legged friend? Well so do we, which is why we allow pets at the Old Chicago Inn. Over the years we’ve enjoyed hosting many furry friends, including a small herd of Bijan Frisees named Curly, Larry and Moe, a delightful lab mix named Harvey, and a proud cat named Napoleon who stayed with us for a month.


If you’d like to visit with your cat or dog, please call us directly at the Inn for assistance. Pets are considered individually, and we do require proof of current vaccinations. We have designated pet rooms (not all rooms are available to guests with pets). We encourage you to bring a crate and may ask you not to leave you pet unattended.


When you arrive at the Inn with Fido or Fluffy be sure to get directions to Kriser’s (1033 W. Belmont) where you’ll receive a 10% discount on gourmet food and treats, or toys for your friend, when you mention that you are a guest of the Old Chicago Inn. Kriser’s carries only all-natural pet foods and has a nice variety of both dry and wet foods. And for the fashion conscious animal lover, Kriser’s carries a selection of both practical and stylish collars, leashes, rain gear, sweaters, and seasonal costumes. For excellent service and sound advice, ask for Judi, the store manager.


Our neighborhood is great for dog walking. If you dog plays nice with others I highly recommend a walk down Sheffield to “Wiggly Field,” our closest dog park. The park is just about a mile away, one block south of Diversey Avenue on Sheffield. You’ll be able to let you friend run off leash without worry here. Who knows, he might make some Chicago canine friends!
