We booked this hotel through Hotwire and were rewarded with a 4th floor room with an amazing view of...a heating duct. I guess you get what you pay for. On the upside, the indoor swimming pool is amazing! Very classic tile decor and just a bit chilly which was perfect for doing some laps in the morning. Plenty of self-park... More

While Checking in I was told as a gold member of the ICH Priority Club, I was eligible for a late Check Out (2pm). The next day i called the front desk to check if they could extend my check out by a meagre 30 minutes as I would have had to reschedule all of my morning, noon appointments to... More

We were about 20 people, each one had a room. Sometimes they were giving a room with a TV some other rooms with 2 beds some others with a computer.... I had the chance to compare all of them as I was the room organizer and I got the impression that they just don't have the resources from time to... More

Just stayed at the interconti Chicago right on N Michigan Ave. Excellent location and superior staff. Especially Vincenzo (Bellman) and Elijah (Front Desk Staff). They both fully exceeded my service expectations. Gym and pool are also fab. Stayed in historic tower in large and comfy room. Would be stay again for sure!

No lounge, rude, scary fitness centre gatekeeper, and that just scrapes the surface of what should be a great place with a prime location. Stayed for three nights and the room on 4 th floor overlooked AC units. I think if you are staying more than one night you should at least get a high floor with some sort of... More

We've stayed many times at the InterContinental in downtown Chicago, and we love it. Great location, excellent service, historic pool (on the 7th floor), etc etc. ALL AT A REASONABLE PRICE. But, the Bellman Kibrom from Ethiopia rocks! Great guy with a great story. Richard

The location was great, however the view from the room was definitely lacking. We paid a little extra to have a King Bed and a little extra room, but when we arrived the room didn't even have a window. Behind the curtains was a cement wall. Other than this everything else was great, but nothing to really brag about.

This is the best hotel in Chicago. The service is top notch. The rooms are great. You can get a Starbucks in the morning and eat in Michael Jordan's Steakhouse in the evening. They have the best pool. Can't go wrong here.

Stayed for business. Great locations. Old hotel but well kept with a wonderful history. Ask about the rooms with blue ceilings. The room I was in was clean and housekeeping kept it that way, but it is also spare. Could have used a lounge chair and more shelf space in the bathroom. Very quiet for the locale.

We had a magnificent stay! The property is strategically located within walking distance from fabulous shops and suberb eating/drinking establishments. Our room in the historic tower was spacious and comfortable and had a great view! The staff was congenial and accommodating. In particular the bellman, "Clive," made us feel welcome and appreciated. We will definitely return to the Intercontinental Magnificent... More
