5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I spent 4 nights at the InterContinental recently and was definitely pleased with the property and the staff. The location was very convenient and allowed me to walk everywhere except to/from the airport (the train station is just a few blocks away). I stayed on the 26th floor but did have some road noise to contend with. I did find... More

Stayed here during ASHRAE. Rooms are small but comfy beds and nice linens. Bathrooms are cramped but functional. Not enough light for entryway / closet area. Staff was very friendly and not opposed to going above and beyond to help a guest. Special thanks to Bob at the Concierge desk! Bar staff did an exceptional job of tolerating drunk and... More

We had a lovely stay here for our anniversary. The staff were all so very helpful, and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Very centrally located, and easy to catch a cab right out front, but very close to many of the "must see" destinations.

I hate seeing some of the negative reviews on this hotel, as my fiancé and I had such a nice experience a couple months ago when staying here. We had such an amazing stay that we are going back in two weekends for our celebration of just getting engaged and my birthday! I will make sure to take pictures of... More

I reserved a king "superior" room as part of an event block more than a month prior to the event. Upon arrival (20 minutes after check-in time started) I was advised that the room size I selected was "more of a preference than a reservation" and that the room type I selected was sold out. I acknowledge that this is... More

We booked our stay in Chicago last minute and got a great deal for the international. We arrived into the city late in the evening and were welcomed by the beautifully lit magnificent mile with all its Christmas decor Check in was mad - so many people and so loud! Turned out it's pretty much like that all the time... More

We just stayed at this hotel for the weekend. We enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very nice, clean, and wonderful location. Great pool area ( but the shallow part of the pool is 4ft deep) We easily walked to several popular tourist destinations. Very quiet in the room. I will say that $67/night for parking is INSANE!! Use an... More

Couldn't ask for a better location, close to all shopping, sightseeing and restaurants, parking. Read about the history of the hotel, very interesting. The swimming pool is beautiful and restored like it was back when it was created with beautiful tile work and stained glass windows. Set up like a lap pool, which can be a little difficult for youngsters... More

We live in the suburbs of Chicago and came down wanting to stay the night in a hotel with a pool. The Intercontinental was great! Water was warm, about 4 other families with kids of all ages. Lots of fun! We brought a ball and played catch. Hotels.com offered rate with breakfast - the only way you could eat breakfast... More
