There are certainly fancier hotels than the Intercontinental in Chicago. During a business trip, I stayed in a suite that had two rooms and two full baths (that would have been great for a family trying to stay together!). Since I was out of the room working from 6 am to about 8 pm each day, I can't speak to...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

You can't ask for a nicer check in experience. Paula made very pleasant conversation and was disappointed I was only staying for one night. Highlighting next time I need to spend some time seeing the city and I agreed. She got me checked in quickly and suggested some great steakhouses in the area. The room itself was very nice. All...

Smack dab in the middle of most everything of interest in Chicago. Easy walk to dining and entertainment, and close to lake for those early morning runs. It would be nicer if the rooms had a comfortable chair in which to read.

This hotel is conveniently located to food, shopping and attractions. We experienced good service from the staff. The room felt a touch on the small side, but not unexpectedly so. The fitness center and pool are great.

I have stayed here many times and I have always been very happy. I only had a problem once, but they admitted the problem and made it all good again right away. On my most recent stay (may 15th-21st) they even went above and beyond. I have never had such a good experience anywhere in the world. I felt more...

An amazing place, everyone was very helpful. If I stepped out to go somewhere, they immediately asked if I needed a cab or directions. Would highly recommend this hotel, not necessarily for children, more for business or personal vacation.

Good service by all employees I encountered, clean rooms and bathrooms and overall hotel, located on Michigan Avenue to be able to walk to all the Brand name stores, but I found the cost to be a little pricey.

I have stayed at the InterContinental a number of times over the years; I return to this hotel as the location is ideal and the service is always good. I have tried other hotels, from "boutique" to main stream 4 and 5 star, but I have found that as long as I can get a reasonable rate the InterContinental I...

Booked this hotel using points for a quick trip to watch the Cubs. I was not disappointed!! Although my room was on the small side, it was comfortable and very well decorated.

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.
