Intercontinental Chicago

Chicago, USA

The hotel

There are few better properties from where to enjoy the sights of Chicago and if you're hoping to shop 'til you drop or check out Lake Michigan's beaches, the Intercontinental allows you to do so in style. Thanks to a fabulous location right in the heart of Chicago's Magnificent Mile, take a visit to the Navy Pier, John Hancock Tower and the Shedd Aquarium which are all within walking distance from your front door. A quick explore of the hotel uncovers a couple of restaurants for all-day dining and there's no better place to enjoy a succulent piece of prime beef other than Michael Jordan's Steakhouse. More sustenance can be found in the ENO bar which has a plentiful selection of wines and cheese, although the Michael Jordan bar is always popular around nightcap time. Finally, if you're thinking up excuses to have a cheeky massage in the Windy City then the Intercontinental's spa* will no doubt be able to twist your arm although, a dip in the indoor pool or a few moments in the sauna also offer equally relaxing alternatives.

Our guests were very complimentary on the entire weekend. The Michigan Avenue location was convenient and perfect for out of town guests who wanted to site see. Tara Hubbard did a fabulous job from our first meeting to discuss a potential wedding venue, then the contract details, tasting and menu selection, final walk through, to the actual event date. I can't praise her enough! If you are considering a wedding in downtown Chicago and want it run right, give them a call! Read less
