I was recently in Chicago for work and also a little play. My company, HST, had our yearly meeting in Chicago and everything was at the Intercontinental. From the moment I arrived, everything the company arranged and the hotel provided was perfect.
I walked into the hotel on Friday afternoon and got checked into my King Tower Room a couple moments later. A bottle of wine and chocolates were waiting for me And I have to say, it was sweet! The bed and pillows were super comfortable and the view was choice.
After getting back from the bar that night, we went up to the party at the hospitality suite, which was a nice end to the evening…. another party.
The meeting for the company took place on the 7th floor the next day. The hotel and my company, Healthcare Solutions Team, put together a very informative and inspiring day. The hotel seamlessly dealt with every transition of the event (from the meeting - lunch - magic show -- cocktail hour -- dinner -- and Chris Gardner (the speaker)).
Sunday morning, I needed to get my shoes shined. The guy at the hotel was not working on Sunday, but the bellman at the hotel said that Nordstrom had a guy just across the street that could do the job. He did. Any time I picked up the phone in my room, the staff member would always answer with: "How can I help you __Mr.__My Name___". I just loved that. The hotel was on point.
I will definitely be going back to the Intercontinental. Their staff does an excellent job of making you feel welcome and they go out of their way to provide the great service.
