Weekend away from the kids!

Weekend downtown enjoying the end of Chicago Chef week staying at the awesomely located Intercontinental Hotel. Great cushy bed, clean room...only problem the bathroom shower could not be set at such a temp that you could stand under it. Too scorching...or too cold. Other than that very pleased with the stay!

Quick business trip

The hotel is located right in the middle of the city ( great location). The staff was very friendly and greeted me promptly and often. The room itself was just okay. In comparison to recent stays at other similar brands, the pillows and radio were noticeably not as good. Still a very nice hotel and would stay there again.

Great location, friendly, helpful staff

I came to Chicago for a conference at Gleacher Center, which is right behind the hotel, so the location was perfect. Great access to Magnificent Mile shopping, restaurants, parks, museum and theaters. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. During breakfast one of the servers noticed I wasn't feeling well and brought me hot tea with honey and lemon. The second day he remembered me and asked if I was feeling better. The concierge gave me tips on how to get tickets for the theatre for half price. Not many places have such conscientious employees. The hotel decor is decent but not as nice as other four star hotels on the mile. The heating system was a bit noisy - it made a clicking sound that bothered me the first night as I am a light sleeper. The hotel is clean and conveniently located with good service.

Short stay during winter

The location is great. Right on Michigan Avenue. The rooms are clean but a little old. The lobby is below average. Nice pool in hotel Strongly advise taking buffet breakfast..it is totally woth it The concierge was not helpful. We called and asked about parking and they gave us the adress of park1 parking but this is the worse parking you can park you car at( open and very rude staff and small place to park)... There is a cheaper place right next to it Inpark chicago for 43$/24 hours

Disappointed

Have stayed at intercontinental hotels across the world and this by far was the most disappointing I was traveling with a child and arrived at 2...they didn't have our room ready until 5. The pool was deep and a lap pool so not ideal for kids. They charged $12 for the fitness center!?! Crazy! And they still charge for the Internet...get with the times!

Chicago on business

Great location and pleasant staff. But still black and blue from hitting my hip on the bathroom door handle--too little space between the sink jutting out and the handicapped type door handle and seemed to hit it every time I went in and out of the jon. Shower was very hard to get the right temperature but everything else was just fine. I was also put off that the treadmill and fitness area cost $13 a day although the pool (very nice lap pool) was free.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Skip the long lines at Starbuck's and go to the second floor breakfast buffet. A little more expensive even if you just order from the menu instead of the buffet, but nice and quiet, a good start of the business day.
