I stayed in the Intercontinental this last weekend when visiting Chicago this past weekend. It is a goal of mine to stay in every well renown hotel in Chicago at least once, this one included. Overall, this hotel is a classical Chicago Landmark, the only hotel with a grand main entrance on the Magnificient Mile portion of Michigan Avenue and... More

If shopping is your game, this is the place to stay. Michigan Ave. is where it's all going on. The hotel is older but I don't feel it's dated. I got the room from Hotwire so I was not expecting a luxury room. However it was nicely appointed and the bed was just right for me. The room was a... More

Spent a weekend with daughters and grand daughters. Rooms in Historic wing were lovely but had extra charges on bill at check out. Thought all was settled and almost a month later another charge has appeared on my credit card. Emailed hotel but got no response so you just need to be careful and willing to contest.

We chose this hotel based on a wedding rate. I thought the check-in process could've gone a little bit faster than it did, but nothing major. I'm not sure what was going on with the front desk as a few people around me seemed to have complaints of mess-ups that were made. We requested two doubles but settled for a... More

Booked this hotel for its proximity to the Marriott. We were meeting family who were staying there, and being almost across the street from each other was very convenient. Availability was limited, but we found ourselves a deluxe king room in the historic tower. We had a corner room with a great view of the Tribune tower, and out of... More

I was upgraded to a room in the historic tower of the hotel. My room was on the 28th floor and offered views of Lake Michigan, Trump Tower and the architecture along Chicago's Magnificent Mile. The king bed was comfy with lots of pillows. The TV got a wide variety of channels and on demand movies. The bath was a... More

The InterContinental is a nice hotel. Our group was there traveling on business. It is a busy hotel and everyone we met was friendly. I had a vehicle an Valet was fine, although it was $65/night. We got in early, so checked bags, which was painless, although it took 30 minutes to get our bags when we came back. There... More

The Intercontinental is a great hotel right on Michigan Avenue. You have access to the "L" just a couple of blocks away, Navy Pier a few blocks away and shopping!! Everyone who worked at the Hotel were so kind and helpful. Can't wait to stay again.
