Had business in Chicago and extended our stay for the weekend. We chose the Inter Continental because of it's location on Michigan Ave. Only 1 block to the river and 2 blocks to the restaurant scene on State St. this was and excellent location for getting out and seeing the city. The bus and boat tours are within a couple... More

The Intercontinental is conveniently located at the southern high point of the Magnificent Mile with a myriad of shops, restaurants, and bars within easy walking distance. From the valet to the bellman to the check-in staff, the staff are all very professional, friendly, and accommodating. I was at the hotel for a business conference. They have a gorgeous ballroom which... More

I just returned from a weekend with my sister in Chicago, staying at the InterContinental for the first time. Check-in was friendly and efficient and while my sister was going through that process I was asking concierge Bob a number of questions. He was beyond friendly and made me feel like an old friend. Upon arriving at our room we... More

This is the third visit with my granddaughter to Chicago and there is nowhere we would rather stay than at the Intercontinental. Jessica Olden of Guest Services sees to it that our stay is memorable. To the upgrade to a gorgeous corner room, amenities too numerous to mention and the treat of the hotel's magnificent breakfast buffet, we were treated... More

I was there for three nights. At one point I decided to go back to my room to take a nap and pressed the "do not disturb" button on the door. I was first woken up by the phone ringing. I didn't answer it. Then there was subsequent knocking on the door and someone loudly yelling "housekeeping." As I had... More

A good experience from top to bottom. Friendly staff, clean, well decorated rooms, and the location can't be beat. We were in Chicago for Lollapalooza over the weekend, and never had an issue with the hotel being crowded, loud or busy. The history of the building is kind of interesting as well. The pool is worth taking a look! We... More

If you are looking for a luxurious new hotel with large rooms this may not be the place for you. It is an older hotel that has been updated the best it can for the age of the hotel. For the price you can find a nicer more luxurious room, but you can't beat the location. This hotel is within... More

Customer service was beyond excellent even as soon as we checked in with Malcolm at the front desk. Concierge provided great insight about the city as well as restaurants. Appreciate Michelle Slaw recommending her favorite Italian restaurant and even making the reservation for us! Great location on Magnificent Mile. So close to everything. Rooms were small though and needs to... More
