The hotel was beautiful, the staff was friendly, and the location was worth every penny. The only thing I can complain about (if I'm stretching) is that the cleaning service replaced every towel daily--despite the fact that I had specifically placed them in the "I'll reuse" locations.

Stayed here to attend wedding at University Club (8 block walk)and found nice service, comfortable bed, and a great night sleep. Michael Jordan's Restaurant is attached as well as Starbucks. It is in the heart of the mag mile and a few blocks from Lake Michigan and Navy Pier...tons of stuff to do like shopping, restaurants, beaches, plays, cinema, etc.

We really enjoyed our entire weekend on the magnificent mile in Chicago. We we took full advantage of the facilities at the Intercontinental Hotel. The fitness facility was excellent. Also enjoyed the lounge in the Michael Jordan's restaurant . Jenn was very kind and very helpful when ever we stopped to have a drink with the family .

Within walking distance of many great restaurants, shopping, boat tours, museums, and more... The front desk staff were very helpful and all staff we encountered were stellar in their service. The pool is so beautiful, it's... More

This is the best hotel I have stayed at in Chicago along the Miracle Mile. It is located well and is near every major attraction and shopping site.It is exciting to be on Michigan Avenue and also have a Starbucks in the lobby to keep you ready to go again after resting up!

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
