dominic toretto would love it
hotel is really nice and the service is great. everyone that worked there that I talked to was above-and-beyond. location is perfect if you want to walk to anything downtown. only thing was, and maybe it was because it was a weekend, but loud cars went up and down Michigan Ave into the mid AM hours. and I was in 1 of the far upper floors. so for those that want a Fast & Furious immersive experience, this is the hotel for you.

Our First Visit to Chicago, but not our last!
This was our first time in Chicago and we’re so glad we chose the InterContinental. The beauty of the architecture of the property is amazing. One must take the time to visit the hidden gems. Thanks to Enrique, a security guard, we were able to see many of these, we had already checked out and we asked him if we could see the pool, to which he responded, you haven’t seen the pool, what about King Arthur’s Court or the Al Capone’s place? He took us on a whirlwind tour and we were able to catch a brief glimpse. Enrique embodies the spirit of everyone we met in Chicago, friendly, warm, and very proud of his city. The property was centrally located on the Magnificent Mile with easy access to popular venues. We also had the pleasure of meeting Wil, one of the doormen, who greeted us like old friends. He recommended various locales and each one was spot on! Get ready to enjoy the famous hot dogs, deep dish pizza, Italian beef and many fine dining options. Our first visit to The Second City, but definitely not our last. Of course we will be staying at the InterContinental!

Could be better
First it is important for the front staff to tell you that you need to scan your room key in the elevator to get to your room otherwise you will NEVER get to your room. The hotel needs more staff in general because you always wait longer than needed for services

Mixed feeling about this hotel
Pluses: - Great location. One of the best in the Magnificent Mile. - Very good sound insulation. Never heard anything the whole stay. - Fair price. Minuses: - Maintenance slipping compared to years past. For example, our shower handle was very hard to turn - almost frozen in place. Maintenance came up to look at it but wasn’t able to fix it. Also, the shower control went from full hot to full cold with barely a rotation — very hard to control the temperature. - For those that like to soak, the tub is very uncomfortable (no head rest - so your neck is jammed up against a vertical wall)
