Service is fantastic. Pool is awesome. 10 min walk to hit the lake. Access to everything. Lobby feels like the class of old Chicago. Have a filet and Makers Manhattan in MJ's Steakhouse....atmosphere is way good.

The lobby and pool are stunning. Rooms are above average but not memorable. Service friendly. The hotel is in one of the most prime locations on Michigan Avenue. It is the heart of Chicago's best shopping and restaurants.

Good attentive service. Room was clean and spacious. Work out facility was roomy enough for the size of the hotel. Location to Lakeshore and on Michigan Ave is a big plus. Coffee shop in building is a nice bonus.

Fantastic service, rooms were as advertised, facilities were amazing, would come again with no issues. The trip was a combination of business and vacation, but even the business part seemed like a vacation. The staff (ALL of them) were attentive and friendly.

The Intercontinental Chicago is a clean, updated, comfortable hotel that is in the perfect location for exploring Chicago. I was able to walk along the Chicago Riverwalk to Navy Pier and Cloudgate without having to go too far from the hotel. The room was clean and the bathroom had a tub and shower. Everything was very modern. The conference area...

We love staying at the Intercontinental Hotel on Michigan Avenue. Our room looked like it was brand new; it was very quiet for a big city hotel and the staff were all very pleasant and helpful. The location couldn't be better - right in the heart of things. We have stayed there before and will plan on staying there again...

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel location is near a beautiful part of Chicago that pulled me outside for a walk before retiring! I felt very safe as a single female business traveler!

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.

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.
