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.

Stay elsewhere

This hotel does not even compare to other 4-5 star hotels in the area. We were first put into the grand tower and the room smelled very musty and it was very small. We called to see if there was a room with a separate tub/shower as I specifically called them after booking, they assured me their was. Needless to say we were lied to. We asked for a different room and had to pay $50 to upgrade to a room in the historic tower, which was larger but nothing to write home about. The shower was tiny, the tub something you find in your average apartment. Not to mention the walls are paper thin and we could hear a party happening either next to or above us. In addition to the overpriced room we paid $65 to park for one day and if you want wifi you have to pay extra. Bottom line, I've vacationed at many 4-5 star hotels, including others here in Chicago and I'd never stay here again, for the same price you can get much more elsewhere.

Sports get away weekend

We did not have the time we would have liked to enjoy the amenities. But it was a beautiful hotel with the old style charm. I would definately recommend to others and will stay there on my next visit!

For late arrivers the Billy Goat Tavern & Grill. For a sports enthusiast Ditka's is a good choice for dinner.
