My husband and I were attending a wedding over the Labor Day weekend in Chicago and identified this hotel as a part of an Amex travel package. We stayed in the Historic Tower where the room size was quite generous! This is an older but well maintained hotel. The location combined with the room pricing were good value. The concierge... More

I almost always stay at the Intercontinental Hotel when I visit Chicago (at least twenty visits now). What keeps me coming back is the combination of great rooms and superb location. Beds are very comfortable and rooms clean. As a member of the IHG loyalty program, I get an automatic room category upgrade and the one bedroom suites are spectacular.... More

My fiancee and I stayed here this past weekend for NGAUS conference as well as just to have a getaway. The hotel staff was very friendly, but the bell hop at the curb was a bit unfriendly and only pulled one bag of four out of the car and expected a tip. The main entrance is very nice and upscale...

I recently stayed at the InterContinental while in town for a quick conference. At check in, the front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean, efficient and comfortable. Meeting room was also comfortable and the staff was efficient and quick to restock drinks, etc. Michael Jordan's steakhouse is the restaurant at the hotel and I only... More

We booked a suite on the 25th floor. The view was ok.we could see Nordstrom from the window. It had 2 bathrooms and a doorbell. The room service and breakfast was delicious but a bit pricey.

The InterContinental Chicago is the only place that we stay at when we visit Chicago. We had no issues with any of the staff members.

Here for a conference, the rooms were good, the service good and the location even better. I even forgot some jewellery in the room and they found it and couriered back to me. I am so impressed! Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and eager to please.

This is my new favorite place in Chicago. Centrally located and within walking distance to the Water Tower, and a quick taxi ride away for everything else. The staff was great, the room great, the view was nice, and the Michael Jordan Steakhouse in the lobby is excellent.

Absolutely the best staff in Chicago. The Intercontinental is known for its first class hotels, and this property doesn't disappoint. Beautiful building, spacious rooms, historic, beautiful, 25 meter pool, incredible location on the Miracle Mile.....I wish there were more stars to rate this hotel. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

This hotel is ideally located on the Mag Mile. Within a few blocks walking distance to world class bars, restaurants and attractions. This hotel is definitely business-centric. They have a myriad of meeting spaces and banquet halls. So if you're going with family or significant other this may not be the hotel for you. I stayed in a king junior... More
