U.S. News Review

The InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile still has touches of its historic 1929 incarnation as the Medinah Athletic Club. The original hand-stenciled ceilings and tapestries continue to adorn the lobby, while rooms in the Historic Tower have Old World features like vintage patterns and gold accents. And though much of the original athletic club's facilities were reconfigured to make way for the hotel's amenities, the junior Olympic swimming pool (in all its vintage opulence) remains. Still, the hotel has kept up with the times: Guest rooms come equipped with high-speed Internet access (for a fee), flat-screen TVs and minibars. In addition to the InterContinental's antique charm, recent visitors also laud the hotel's mid-Magnificent Mile locale and its exceptional staff. The only thing travelers lamented was the fee for in-room Wi-Fi and the pricey charge for on-site parking. The Continental Restaurant, however, earns praise from discerning diners for its New American cuisine, and travelers also appreciate the hearty plates served at Michael Jordan's Steak House. The icing on the cake: Members of the IHG Rewards Club loyalty program can earn points by staying here, or cash in rewards to help cover the cost of their stay.
