A great hotel in a great location, what else do I need to say. This has been my first stay at this Chiacgo hotel but it will not be my last. Located within walking distance of many of Chicago great restaurants, shopping and tourist spots, definitely a gray place to stay.

For whatever reason my first trip to Chicago ever was a mere two weeks ago, the occasion being a dear friend's wedding. I knew that the hotel had been chosen for a number of reasons, which the hotel delivered upon perfectly. The location was superb. The events of the wedding would all take place in one or another portion of... More

Great conference facilities. Nice room in the newer tower, and conference rooms are in the old tower. Conveniently located in the city. Concierge service is excellent! Staff is very welcoming. Irritating to have an in-room refrigerator already stocked with expensive selections. Would rather have more room for my beverages.

I stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel as part of a conference. My room was in the new tower and the conference sessions were in the Historic Tower. The Hotel is right in the middle of the Miracle Mile shopping area and convenient to many shops and restaurants. The Historic Tower, which was built in the 1920's has incredible architecture. There... More

We got a great rate on HW, and were very pleased with the room for what we paid. Without this great rate, I would have been way less satisfied! It is a great location and easy to get anywhere you may want to go during your time in Chicago. When we checked in, the front desk attendant notified us that... More

You can't beat this hotel for location, guest service or style. Authentic old style Chicago with a modern look. My room wasn't ready, but they not only held my luggage but locked my laptop in their safe and even texted me when the room was ready......no having to keep checking back with the desk...... Every little detail is thought of... More

Clean and exceptional service, starting with the bellmen, registration, concierge. Michael Jordon's bar and grill beautiful! Pool and fitness area provided every luxury you need. Rooms in new tower were a bit small but you have everything you want at your fingertips, even a personal bathrobe. This staff assures, the customer is first and foremost. Leave your vehicle, you dont... More

IC Chicago has a great location, right there at the center of Magnificent Mile, which was extremely convenient. Rooms and services are good. Lobby area is extremely small and so gets crowded. Try and get a room higher up and get city views - as view of Mag Mile will be spectacular at night.

The best thing about the hotel is location and their amenities. They even have a Starbucks off the lobby!. The rooms are average but clean and comfortable. Our bathroom did not have a vanity so it was awkward with 2 people. The staff is friendly but sometimes not enough of them at the front desk. There could be annoying waits... More

I stayed in this hotel about 6 months ago. So it could have changed. I have to admit it was reasonably priced but the hotel was not welcoming at all. Service and staff was ok, it has a great location and you can walk out of the hotel and walk around perfectly. However, rooms are horrible. Very dark, hard mattress,... More
