U.S. News Review

The InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile still has flourishes 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 touches 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, flat-screen TVs and modern bath fixtures. In addition to the InterContinental's antique charm, recent visitors also laud the hotel's mid-Magnificent Mile locale. Meanwhile, the on-site Continental Restaurant earns praise from discerning diners for its New American cuisine, while travelers appreciate the hearty plates served at Michael Jordon'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.
