I was pleasantly surprised by the Intercontinental Chicago, as it is quite a nice property in the middle of the Magnificent Mile. Its excellent location alone makes it one of the best options for anyone who wants to have immediate access to Michigan Ave. But location alone can't earn a great review for a hotel. Thankfully, the Intercontinental Chicago seems... More

So, my girlfriend and I took a trip to Chicago for the 4th of July and booked through Hotwire for this hotel. Because you cannot choose your hotel with Hotwire, it can be a bit of a crap shoot. When I discovered we were staying at the Intercontinental, I immediately went to Tripadvisor to check out the reviews. Needless to... More

Front the front desk staff to the housekeeping staff we were treated like royalty. Nothing was too much trouble. We got an e mail from the concierge a few days before we left to see if we needed anything from her - what incredible customer service! Even though it was the July 4th weekend we got upgraded to a two... More

We recently stayed 3 nights at this hotel for an all too brief holiday in Chicago. Let me start by saying that our booking was made through Hotwire, so we didn't expect exceptional service from the staff, knowing that Hotwire had probably paid a miniscule amount some months ago for the room and the hotel was not going to be...

This property is in the middle of paradise. The Magnificent Mile is like being in NYC only it is cleaner and probably safer (even the few street people looked presentable!). This is really a nice hotel. The rooms are a little on the smallish side. We were there for a wedding so we got to see multiple rooms. The Michael... More

I recently stayed 5 nights at The InterContinental Chicago on Michigan Avenue. The location is top notch. I walked absolutely everywhere from this hotel. I had a room in the newer tower which was very modern, clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel as your base for seeing the great city of Chicago.

Former Chicago residents, we had stayed at this hotel before. This time we arrived as a family - two small girls in tow. The gorgeous architecture that is nearing a century still remained as pristine as it has always been. But traveling with children gave us a new prespective. At check in, the concierge brought tiaras to our girls. We... More

Stayed here with our friends and kids and had a lovely time. Location can't be beat as it's the only hotel right on the Mag Mile, which made it easy to pop in during the day. Our room had a great view and they have metal cribs for young kids. Do the self guided tour if you have some time... More

Booked the Intercontinental through an Expedia package deal for a long 4th of July Weekend with wife and 7 year old son. As everyone says, the location is in the center of everything and there isn't a more conveniently located hotel in the entire city. This is a VERY large hotel and the lobby was always extremely busy. I agree... More
