Check-in was quick and easy. Being a member of the IHG rewards programme, I got free Wi-Fi, which came in very handy when checking the opening times/directions of places I wanted to go to. I had a room on the 14th floor overlooking North Michigan Avenue. Overall it was very quiet, but the noise from passing fire engines and the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a long holiday before flying home. The room was comfortable and clean, with nice products available. The indoor pool is well worth a visit. We visited the gym first then were very happy to relax by the pool, taking a dip every so often. The changing rooms have a sauna... More

Excellent service, clean , quietness, everything near the hotel, perfect in all details. Little expensive in addition they have a new charges if you receive any package or shipment from any online stores during your stay you will be charged for that.

This is a luxury hotel perfectly located on Michigan Avenue. The staff is welcoming (I had the good fortune to be checked in by a trainee who handled herself like a veteran), friendly and gracious. The room I received was a king bed with a lovely view of Michigan Ave. The only drawback for some may be that it can... More

Problem with this propert started at checkin. The photo shows the crazy long line. I went up to the concierge to ask for a manager on duty and she explained they were all working at the front desk. I guess this explains it, a 750 room hotel that doesn't have enough reception agents so 3 managers had to work the... More

The InterContinental Chicago could not be located any better. If you are looking to be right in the center of the magnificent mile and a short walk from some of the best restaurants and shopping in the US, this is as good an option as possible. The hotel itself is quite nice and like just about any hotel, has its... More

I wish there are was TripAdvisor rating of "Good". This hotel was better than average, but not really "Very" Good. It was clean, in a good location, and typically overpriced as would be expected from this brand and location. The indoor pool was beautiful! Beds were a bit too soft for our taste and the lobby air conditioning was too... More

Very pleased with the Intercontinental Chicago — both the welcoming staff and inviting room. I stayed for a week on business and had no issues at all. They were a little insistent when I left the do not disturb sign on the door for three nights and came to check on me, possibly assuming I was dead. I was not.

The hotel staff was very accommodating from check-in throughout the stay. Cannot beat the location, central to all attractions- no more than a 10 minute walk in any direction. Also a cool art deco building with modern amenities.

Typical room in a nicer hotel. Great location on the Magnificent Mile; it was real convenient to shopping, the river, etc. We had a great view of the skyline from our room. The gym was way better than most in a hotel, and that pool was awesome (if a little on the cold side).

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.
