I stayed at the Intercontinental near O'Hare airport in Chicago on a stop over. Being familiar with Intercontinental I was not disappointed. The front desk staff was well trained in customer service. Check in was quick, efficient and friendly on a Friday night at 7pm. The Deluxe King room was up to date, clean and appointed with contemporary furnishings. Bed was very comfortable and the hallways quiet. The beefy doors are loud even when one attempts to close them quietly. But never was I awakened. I did take advantage of the airport shuttle which was on time on the half hours. Right in the parking lot are two fantastic restaurants: McCormick & Schmick, and The Capitol Grille.
