We visit Chicago a couple of times a year in order to shop along the Magnificent Mile. We have stayed at several hotels in the area over the years. Now that we have found the InterContinental we plan to keep this as our primary hotel. The service and quality that we get at the InterContinental is how we now judge... More

The hotel provided very good service from check in to check out. Food service was great for breakfast with aside variety of choices, rooms were spacious and very comfortable, and thr staff helped us in anyway we requested. Great location near shopping or the Hop On tourist bus, city bus stop is also near the hotel. Good value.

Very impressed with the customer service from the moment we called to request adjoining rooms and refrigerator for a nursing mom in our group. We booked this hotel through Priceline and got a great rate for the prime location it has. The rooms were a perfect size for our group. I'm giving it a 4 star review because of the... More

From the minute we checked in the staff was nothing but helpful! Everything you need is right there. Absolutely perfect location to enjoy Chicago and the Magnificent Mile! You are close to bus connections if needed to go out or simply put your hand up for a cab.

The hotel is in exactly the right location - walk the mag mile, or walk down to Millennium Park. Tons of places to shop, eat and people watch. The service was top notch at the hotel and in the MJ Steakhouse. We experienced loud neighbors in the hotel and we were offered a new room (though we declined). The concierge... More

We Pricelined this hotel, which was rated 4.5 stars. I disagree with that rating. It's in a "great location" if you want to stay right in the middle of downtown surrounded by clothing stores and a Starbucks on every corner (including one attached to the hotel). Pros: friendly staff, vouchers for a free drink at the bar, comfortable bed. Cons:... More

We booked this hotel because we are Ambassador members and the location and rates were comparable to many other spots. I must admit -- and some of my TA friends will know this -- that I was hesitant. Many have commented on the small rooms and the lack of upkeep. Our arrival late afternoon on a Friday was probably during... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel and our only quibble is that it is rather expensive. Our room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Our room faced North Michigan Ave. and during the day it was a bit noisy but overnight it was very quiet. We decided to include breakfast during our stay and that turned... More

We spent 2 nights at the Intercontinental for a wedding. I reserved 2 queen beds for our family of 4, but when we arrived the check-in person insisted that we needed a "bigger" room, so he assigned us a King room. We were a little put off by this - 4 people in 1 bed?? He insisted the kids could... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
