Haute Hotel: Intercontinental Chicago


Chicago is known for its food and hospitality; the restaurants and hotels here are world class. The hotels in particular are some of the best in the world, and that includes the Intercontinental Chicago (505 North Michigan) on the famed Magnificent Mile. It’s a hotel that was made to capture the essence of the 1920s with a modern twist and was built in 1929 (it was originally the Medinah Athletic Club). The hotel underwent an extensive renovation in 2001 and then an additional renovation of 477 guest rooms and corridors in the Grand Tower April 9, 2013. It’s the type of hotel that is referenced in architectural tours of the city, it features a stunning blend of architecture and art. The hotel features a four-story lobby with a grand staircase and cast bronze ornamentation, 807 newly refurbished guest rooms and suites, and over 40,000 square feet of conference rooms and banquet facilities.

Besides the beauty in all aspects of the hotel from the grand staircase down to the draperies, carpets and stunning murals, there’s so much more to staying at the Intercontinental Chicago. You can get everything from a standard room to a suite to a pure 99.9% allergen-free room. The amenities are great, including the turn down service, wireless Internet, indoor pool and more. And you can’t forget about the location, in the heart of downtown, on the Magnificent Mile. All the greatest dining, shopping and tourist attractions are steps away.


So if I were you, I would head over to www.icchicagohotel.com and get all the info I can, then book a room, then enjoy downtown Chicago in pure luxury.
