Great location, luxury and atmosphere. We booked this hotel for the weekend prior to Christmas and it was the perfect choice. Close to shopping, restaurants, nightlife and entertainment in the heart of the city. Clean, courteous, and excellent customer service. Parking is a little pricy, but you can park very close to the hotel and pay 1/3 of their parking... More

So my husband and I just arrived here, never stayed here before and we were put into the grand tower with dirty, tiny room. We got a "deal" in orbits so we decided to stay here. Needless to say we complained and had to pay $50 to upgrade to the historic tower. We just paid that and arrived to our... More

I couldn't have asked for a better location. Smacked right in the middle of the Magnificent Mile on Michigan Ave across from Nordstrom (my fav store!!). And got such a great deal!! From check in to check out, everything was flawless. The staff was so nice & explained my charges and deposits to me when I didn't understand. The room... More

Single night stay was awesome. Thursday was our anniversary so we thought we would check priceline and try to get a downtown hotel just for the night. We blind bid priceline 4.5 star hotel for $75 and got the Intercontinental. This is a great price for a Michigan Ave hotel and probably shouldn't be expected normally. We were expecting a... More

We arrived early, so of course our room wasn't ready, which was expected. Our room was on a higher floor and facing Michigan Avenue in the Historic Tower and it was totally quiet for our three night stay. We had a rather large room and it was clean. Our only problem was that when we left that nobody would answer... More

Visited Chicago in the Summer, a city that we'd always want to see and it did not disappoint. We chose the InterContinental Chicago for its great location. It is on North Michigan Ave right in the heart of the city close to all the shops, in fact close to everything. Staff were friendly and welcoming, service was excellent, rooms a... More

Great location in the heart of the Windy City! We're from Chicago, but once a year we like to have a downtown weekend. As a bonus, they have a Starbucks and Michael Jordan's Steak House (HIGHLY recommend) within the hotel. They left us a dessert & champagne in our room to celebrate my birthday (this could be because we're ambassador... More

This is a 5 star hotel at 4 star prices - I spent an entire week in Chicago and found the hotel to be in the heart of the action on Michigan Ave. The rooms were very spacious and very clean. The staff was helpful ad made you feel at home.

I stayed 3 days during December for a business trip. At check in I asked for a good room. In return for the question I got the worst room available (# 1660) - right by the elevator and windows to the backside of the hotel starting at 5-6 feet from the floor. So - I went down to reception and... More

At check in my ambassador level was recognized and upgraded to a marvelous suite in the historic tower. Staff very profesional and caring. Breakfast buffet really nice even though the space is...
