No attention to detail

Room: I arrived in the room and there were some issues. First, there were no bath soap stuff in the bathroom. Instead in the soap dish there was a long hair. The toilet paper holder was hanging out of the wall by a long screw that I didn't mention, but that I was hoping the housekeepers would notice. They didn't. The water literally would stop completely for a moment in the shower. I had to turn the A/C off because I couldn't hear the TV over it. It was crazy loud. The bed was comfortable. The location was great. There is a plasma TV that you can connect AV/computer stuff to. Oh yeah, the toilet is the type you find in commercial locations... no tank, just a lever. I really don't like that.

Very good hotel in a great location. Prices are not bad, but did not include things like fitness (extra charged) and internet access.

girls weekend

Overall the hotel was a good value, although I would not stay there again. It is an older building (which shows in certain respects), but they have made several upgrades. Service was exceptional, all staff members were helpful and courtious. Food and service at 2 of the 3 restaurants on site was wonderful. Didn't like that I had to pay a fee to use the fitness center. Rooms are small and there was very poor air circulation on our floor (musty smell and humid). Peeling paint on the ceiling in the bathroom.

Great Location

The hotel has a great location and is within walking distance of restaurants (Rosebud, Cheesecake Factory, The Grill, Maggiano's, Grand Lux Cafe, Mike Ditka's, Joe's, Texas De Brazil, Gino's Pizza, among others) and shopping (White Water Place, 900 Michigan Shops, Nordstrom, Nike, Disney Store, Apple, Crate and Barrel, Marshalls, American Girl Place, Lego Store, Saks Fifth Avenue, among many others). It is also close to the Millenium Park, the Shedd Aquarium, Soldier Field, the Field Museum, the Adler Planetarium and the Navy Pier.

Perfect location

Room was very clean, and the common areas quite nice. We especially liked the Starbucks just off the lobby. Room very small. Refrigerator in room didn't work, so everything in it was warm; light in the bathroom needed replacing.

Efficient & Professional

I visited Chicago to attend the national convention of my fraternity. I found the Intercontinental staff to be prompt, efficient and professional. At one point, I needed to have a bowtie professionally tied. The Front Desk Manager ([...]) tied it for me. He was a life saver!

Try Lou Malnati's for the best Chicago style pizza. It's in the 400 block on North Wells, about 7 blocks west of Michigan.
