You might spend more time staring at the 1920s design of the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile hotel than you spend checking in at the front desk. When you've finished gawking at the gold leaf murals, the marble columns topped with medieval knights, and the blue tile ceiling of the Spanish Tea Court, don?t forget to squeeze in a wine and chocolate-tasting session at on-site eatery, Eno. There's also a Junior Olympic indoor pool to conquer - complete with original Moorish-style features. Or if you feel like a more subdued afternoon, the sugar honey body polish at the Spa and Health Club awaits.

Neighborhood
The InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile hotel is located directly on the 13-mile stretch of Chicago’s North Michigan Avenue, locally dubbed the 'Magnificent Mile' for its hundreds of shops, boutiques, museums and restaurants, many of which operate around the clock. Within a five-block radius of the hotel, visitors will find the iconic Navy Pier and legendary Shedd Aquarium, while a walk over the Chicago River leads to acres of welcome green space at Millennium Park, with the Art Institute of Chicago inside its vast expanse.
Hints and tips
Restored to its former glory after sixty years of disrepair, the InterContinental Chicago has plenty of stories to tell. Check out features like the original marble lions in the Assyrian-design hall, and the sweeping staircase in the lobby, the handrail of which belonged to the Medinah Athletic Club of 1929.

For the best views in the hotel, request a room in the historic tower.

Perfect Location

This hotel was in a perfect location. There was a starbucks connected to the hotel and we walked right out of our hotel and we were walking distance to all the shops in downtown chicago. This was a great place to stay. The hotel was beautiful.

The Best Hotel in Chicago

The Intercontinental was convienently located downtown. Right in the heart of chicago. Located on the most traveled street north Michigan ave. The beautiful staircase was an attraction and once inside the room it was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of closet space and a manificient view of downtown. Also, the bathroom was nice and clean. Another plus was being able to order room service at anytime-open 24 hrs. Loved it!!

Intercontinental chicago is unbeatable

We took my 72 year old mother to Chicago for her birthday to see "Jersey Boys". The location of this hotel was perfect. We were close to everything. The theater district is a short cab ride away. Shopping is literally at your door step. The staff was excellent. After several trips to Chicago and staying a multiple hotel, this hotel surely ranks at the top. We will be back.

A Wonderful Stay

The hotel was wonderful. The rooms were very clean and the staff was most helpful. Our arrival was dampened by our room not being ready by 3 pm, however, we were able to store our luggage until the room was ready. The pool was beautiful and we felt as if we were in a fairy tale. It was absolutely the most beautiful pool that I have ever seen. The rooms were very comfortable and the beds, comforters, and pillows made for a great night's sleep. The location cannot be beat. It is on the Magnificant Mile so shopping is easy and you can shop and return to your room with packages and go again. If needed, the Metro stop is within a short walk and cabs are plentiful and easy to get. The staff at the hotel was great. I do wish there was an ice machine on every floor.

Worth every penny!

We went to Chicago for the first time just to get away for a few days and decided to stay at the Intercontinental. We are very happy that we did. The hotel is perfect for any visitor to Chicago, especially first timers like ourselves. The location is right on the Magnificent Mile and surrounded by shopping, close to public transportation, excellent restaurants, and decent bars. Our only real complaint is that the internet was slow. We stayed in the Historic Tower, which I would definitely recommend. The room was a great size and the views were amazing. Overall, we could not be happier with the pick.

Great Value

The room was nice, and the location was perfect for Michigan Ave shopping. It was also conveniently located near the Loop. Every destination was a short walk, bus ride or train ride away. The hotel was only two blocks from the Red Line train. This was a great value for the location.
