Spent two nights at the InterContinental on a business trip.
This is a tremendous, towering hotel in one of the best locations in Chicago – right on the Magnificent Mile and superbly convenient for shopping and well placed for the business area.
My room was in the Historic Tower – a 1920s Masonic Club which has been converted at enormous expense. The effort has been worthwhile.
My room was very large and well furnished, with a beautiful bathroom which contained a separate shower cubicle. It had breathtaking views down Michigan Avenue.
There is a superb recreation centre (with an impressive swimming pool) beautiful bars and a good restaurant, Zest, that serves a great breakfast.
There is wifi in the rooms ($9.95 per day) and tea and coffee making facilities. No trouser press, but there is an ironing board and iron. The staff is friendly and anxious to please.
I recommend this hotel in the strongest possible terms. It’s expensive, but it will be difficult to find a better one in Chicago.
