I stayed 3 days during December for a business trip. At check in I asked for a good room. In return for the question I got the worst room available (# 1660) - right by the elevator and windows to the backside of the hotel starting at 5-6 feet from the floor. So - I went down to reception and... More

Put in simple words: amazing hotel for a leisure stay! Great and awesome experience at this venue. The hotel is extremely well located, next to shops and attractions. At check in my ambassador level was recognized and upgraded to a marvelous suite in the historic tower. Staff very profesional and caring. Breakfast buffet really nice even though the space is...

I stayed for a week during RSNA meeting in November/December. The location is very good, right in the middle of maginificent mile. The room is good, standard for this level. However, it is disappointed that there is no free Wi-Fi, not in the room or in the lobby. In 2014, it should be available for customer. Moreover, I was charged... More

This was a weekend getaway for the family (myself, wife, and sons ages 9 & 11). First of all we chose this hotel because I have a lot of reward points and this stay was free for us. To be fair I'm not sure we would have chosen this hotel if we were paying...not for any particular reason, but InterContinental... More

The rooms in the new tower are more modern, but the historic tower has more space in the rooms and it is easier to access the pool from it. I love the pool, but it does not seem to have an obvious handicapped accessible entrance and involved a lot of steps to get to. That said, seldom does a hotel... More

This is a good Intercontinental hotel in the heart of Chicago. Located on the Magnificient Mile, there is no shortage of good restaurants or things to see nearby. The hotel is on the older side, but feels more historic than old. The lobby is impressive, and definitely exudes luxury. The rooms, although recently renovated, feel a bit outdated. I stayed...

I really enjoyed the intercontinental and the front desk staff was superb. I asked for a little extra floor space in my price range and they kindly accommodated. And because of a family emergency I had to check out early and again, they kindly did so. The fitness area has free weights as well as machines, which I appreciate. And... More

My husband and I were in town for a conference and booked a last minute stay at the InterContinental through Priceline after our original lodging proved less than stellar. The front desk staff was very helpful in getting us checked in early and making sure we had everything we needed; all things that went above and beyond what is expected.... More

I travel a lot and can't get excited by hotels - quite, clean, efficient is usually enough. Occasionally one does really impress. I am so glad I tried this one out. The location is great and it's a really nice building too. The team found me a great room on the top floor away from the lift (my tip for... More

We are a couple with my wife attending the 100th RSNA conference in Chicago. When we travel we typically use the hotels associated with the IHG Group - essentially the Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza and Intercontinental. My wife is a Platinum Priority Club member - and also prior to departing Australia I also re-joined her in the Ambassador Club. The... More
