This was my first time staying here in 15 years. It has been updated and done well. Location is excellent and within walking distance to a variety of dining choices, shopping and entertainment. I would stay here again.

The location of the InterContinental was so convenient to so many places and then when you add in the courteousness of the staff and the great accommodations, you can't beat it. We were able to park our car and walk everywhere we wanted to go.

Well positioned hotel on Michigan Avenue otherwise known as the Magnificent Mile. Shops, Restaurants and bars line the gorgeous streets with an assortment of different colored tulips adding color to sidewalks. Hotel is very average, with entrances to Starbucks and Micheal Jordan steak house sharing the foyer. Rooms are quite spacious but have small bathroom. The service and staff are...

We enjoyed our brief stay at the intercontinental. The room was nice, the bed was comfy. My husband would've liked a chair that wasn't an office chair. The vent in the bathroom was gross but otherwise we were happy.

We stayed at both towers. Executive (Historic) and the Grand (relatively new). This hotel needs some TLC. The housekeeping staff is excellent and will go the extra mile to make sure your needs are met. The rooms were clean and for the kind of rate I would not expect anything less. The elevators can use some maintenance too . In...

Dear aroych2, Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. Our Executive Tower actually underwent some major renovations in early 2015 so, depending on when you stayed with us, your experience could be a reflection of why we chose to go through with the remodel. We appreciate your feedback regarding elevator function and how much you appreciated the excellent service...

We had a double executive room and it was lovely, spacious, CLEAN and comfortable. We were on the 23rd floor with an amazing view - especially at night. The beds were SO comfortable. The bathroom had a glass shower and a full sized tub. The water pressure was good for such a large hotel. Everyone from the doorman to the...

We were lucky enough to get upgraded for a small price to a corner suite on a high floor. The view of the river and surroundings was magnificent. The suite was over 700 sf--just gigantic with 2 desks so we could both work. I have stayed and similar suites before in this hotel and it was just wonderful. The package...

I was so impressed with this hotel and the level of friendliness by each and every staff member. The bellman even offered to take my picture in front of the hotel before the Go Shuttle picked me up while I was waiting. The room was gorgeous and I thought it was the nicest room I saw the entire trip. Plus...

We had an amazing weekend at the InterContinental! A friend from high school was getting married, so three of us flew down to Chicago for a long weekend. We booked a room with two beds and I was pleasantly surprised to see how large the room was. I'm used to hotels in major cities having tiny cramped rooms, but the...

This is a wonderfully situated hotel with beautiful interiors and pleasant amenities. The hotel rooms are comfortable, spacious with tasteful furniture and decor. I was there for a meeting and the meeting rooms were very atmospheric rather than clinically sterile like many hotels. The legacy pool is one of the best (elevated) indoor pools I have been in with nice...

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighbourhood 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.
