Editorial review:

Intercontinental Chicago Hotel has old and new wings, a great location on the Magnificent Mile, great architecture, a tiled indoor pool, and rooms that vary from exquisite to drab. The historic wing is recommended. The service is nothing special.

      • Older travelers

        The location right at the shopping & dining center of Chicago makes the hotel perfect for tourists and weekend travelers. Breakfast at The Continental makes a good start for a busy day. I just love going back to InterContinental Hotel at 505 n Michigan for these reasons.

        Refrigerator isn't standard in every room.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        The breakfast is very good!

        That you have to pay for the Internet connection and the TV Channels were few.

        Excellent location, friendly service, beautiful architecture and a wonderful swimming pool.

        airconditioning in the room was very noisy, did not allow for a restfull night

      • Group of friends
        9.6

        Had to wait to get into the room - said they would come get me in the lobby but no one did; I had to go and finally ask if my room was ready.

        location, food, staff

        too much noise early in the morning, room make-up very late and superficial

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        The location is perfect for a Michigan Ave. City trip. Lots of excitement, people, lights, attractions near by. Helpful employees.

        A little pricey for the size of the room, although everything in that room and the lobby and surrounding areas is very good quality. Not all rooms have a good view even though you may be told you would have one.

      • Single
        7.0

        The location is excellent if you want to be near Michigan Ave shops and within walking distance of fun bars and restaurants.

        The rooms are clean and comfortable; however, quite small and could be more updated for the price you pay per night.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Location was excellent and for the price, it was a very, very nice hotel. I would def stay there again. We also had a wonderful view outside our window.

        Location location !!!!

        they charge too much for parking cars !!!!!!! $55 is too much if I'm staying at the same hotel

      • Group of friends
        7.0

        The location was great and very central to everything.

        I think that for the price you are paying that the hotel should include free wifi in the room.

      • Single

        The Main reaon I booked the hotel over any other in downtown Chicago was for their swimming pool which was closed ! I should have been notified in advance. Internet access was to expensive Room was very dated especially the bathroom which needs updating, fixtures were just about holding together. I asked for a quiet room but was put in between two interconnecting rooms ! Could hear people in other room as if they were in my room.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        I like the elegance of an older hotel.

        Noise of bedroom fan.

      • Family with children
        7.0

        The location is great and the room size is big. Very accessible to shopping stores and restaurants.

        The internet service access is quite expensive compared to the other hotels I've been. The price being assess is double the price. Other hotels are giving their internet service for free. Also, I can smell cigarette smokes in the lobby and elevator area. I just hope they will prohibit smoking in the lobby and inside the elevator. Thank you!
