Great First Trip to Chicago

Hotel was in an excellent location for access to downtown Chicago. The room was a good size with large bathrooms. Hotel was very clean. Definitely cheaper places to stay in the same area, but for the quality of the hotel, not a bad price.

Great Hotel!

The only thing that was irritating - a BUSY weekend and only one concierge to answer guest questions. I found myself standing in line for what seemed to be forever to answer a very simple question. Other than that - very pleased with everything else.

Weekend getaway

Had a great time. Hotel location is great. Close to all the major shopping on Michigan avenue and also close enough to open air buses if you wish or close enough to walk to all areas.

Holiday weekend getaway

This hotel is located right near plenty of restaurants and tourist attractions (mag mile, navy pier, grant park, etc) which is how we started our hotel search. This hotel was very reasonably priced, especially being the holiday weekend, which is how we came about choosing it. Having never previously stayed in this hotel, I'd have to say we were pleasantly surprised and would definitely return here for a future trip. From the courteous staff down to the comfort and cleanliness of the room, this hotel is second to none. Keep up the excellence!

Great location and awesome staff

It doesn't get any better than the location of this hotel. Right in the middle of the Magnificent Mile, within walking distance to just about everything. The amenities were great inlcuding a well equipped fitness center and beautiful indoor pool. The staff at this hotel are phenomenal. Everyone we encountered was extremely helpful, friendly and professional. They were amazing. The rooms are on the small side but you overlook it because everything else is awesome!

great location

i lived in Chicago for many years. Back then, Michigan Avenue/ Magnificent Mile used to be THE place to shop. And it still is. Within a 5-minute walk of the hotel, there is Saks, Neiman, Nordstrom, Tiffany, Cartier, Burberry...you name it.

Magnificent Mile at its Best

this was my second stay at the Chicago Intercontinental. It is a beautiful, historic hotel with architectural significance. so very importatn to the beauty of chicago. Don't miss a chance to swim inthe beautiful art deco pool. Of course, the location could not be better. Easy access to shopping, the Chicago river, historic landmarks, etc. If you love to walk a city, this is the place to stay. The concierge and all the service staff were courteous and helpful. The lounge and wine bar are delightful. One of my favorite hotels.

Lovely hotel in great location on the Mile

Overall we enjoyed our stay. Concierge was very helpful with any questions we had. It was frustrating that we could not adjust the temperature in our room, which stayed a constant 69 F. This was way too cool for me and heat was not an option at all in the room. We called for assistance and front desk sent an engineer who said the hotel had switched the entire hotel to "cool" because it was technically summer; thus heat was not an option. It was miserable in the room at night with the temperature so chilly.

Walk or take a cab to Mercat de la Planxa restaurant on Michigan Avenue. Excellent food and a great dining experience. Michael Jordan Steakhouse connected to the Intercontinental Hotel is also excellent.
