IHG – standing for InterContinental Hotels Group – is an extensive hotel family encompassing such well-known hospitality brands as Kimpton HotelsCrowne Plaza, Holiday Inn Hotels, EVEN Hotels, Hotel Indigo and (you guessed it) InterContinental. This hotel group's collection includes roughly 5,400 hotels across nearly 100 countries. Unlike other hotel groups – which tend to focus on only one side of the price scale – IHG offers rooms for nearly every price range, not to mention perks for loyal customers through the IHG Rewards Club program. While the InterContinental brand often targets business travelers with more money to spend, budget- and family-friendly accommodations can be found in the Holiday Inn portfolios. And mid-range rates fall under the Crowne Plaza and Hotel Indigo names, while Candlewood Suites and Staybridge Suites offer long-term stay accommodations for those on the road for an extended period of time. The following IHG properties appear on our Best Hotels in the USA, Best Hotels in Canada, Best Hotels in Mexico and Best Hotels in Europe rankings lists.

    Kimpton Gray Hotel
    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 605 reviewsTripAdvisor (605)

    The Kimpton Gray Hotel is located in downtown Chicago's Financial District, but it attracts more than just business travelers. With Vol. 39, a law library-inspired bar, and Boleo, a rooftop lounge with Latin American street food, it's a popular hot spot for tourists and locals alike. Plus, as a member of the Kimpton family, it offers all of the brand's signature amenities, like complimentary wine receptions, free bike rentals and the Forgot It, We've Got It amenities program. Taking after its name, accommodations are decorated in a soothing gray color palette, with powder blue accents, lace-inspired carpets and unconventional artwork. For a truly lavish stay, book the Presidential Suite, which at 908 square feet houses a living room with a custom wet bar, spa-like bathrooms and two signature bathrobes that are free to keep. Recent guests raved about the "wonderful" decor, "friendly" staff and "beautiful" rooftop eatery, as well as the great location, which is ideal for business and leisure travelers alike, though others pointed out that being in the heart of the city does come with noise. If you're an IHG Rewards Club member, you can earn or redeem points when staying here.

    Kimpton Hotel Monaco Chicago
    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2548 reviewsTripAdvisor (2548)

    The Hotel Monaco Chicago lives up to many people's expectations of a Kimpton hotel, boasting bright, funky decor and an excellent location. Looking out over the Chicago River from its seat in the northeast corner of the Loop, this hotel stuns travelers with the Victorian-esque furnishings and bold patterns found throughout the hotel, including in the guest rooms. Accommodations also come with LCD televisions, honor bars and yoga mats, while kid- and pet-friendly amenities are available upon request. According to previous guests, fans of the Hotel Monaco style will enjoy a stay in the Chicago version, particularly because of the hotel's excellent customer service. IHG Rewards Club members will be able to get additional perks, like free Wi-Fi access, and can earn and redeem night credits here. But this property has a few unique characteristics worth noting. First, there are the in-room spa treatments. And let's not forget the flavorful Midwestern cuisine served at Fisk & Co., which travelers enjoy.

    Kimpton Hotel Palomar Chicago
    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2996 reviewsTripAdvisor (2996)
    Free WiFi

    Two blocks west of The Magnificent Mile and four blocks north of the Loop, the Kimpton Palomar Chicago is a convenient lodging choice for sightseers. This Kimpton hotel offers easy access to some of the Windy City's most popular attractions. But there's more to this hotel than its location. Previous guests praise the rooms, describing them as spacious and comfortable with floor-to-ceiling windows, a number of varied pillow styles, Frette linens and artwork inspired by the Chicago World's Fair. Although you'll be surrounded by the numerous eateries of Chicago's Near North area, some guests recommend trying the New American cuisine served at the trendy Sable Kitchen & Bar. Recent travelers also loved the wealth of freebies provided in the lobby, including complimentary coffee in the morning and wine tastings in the evening. And the service staff – from the concierge to the housekeeping employees – earns high marks as well. Members of the IHG Rewards Club can earn benefits, like complimentary Wi-Fi, by choosing to stay here.

    InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile
    Chicago, IL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 5459 reviewsTripAdvisor (5459)

    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, this Chicago 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 this 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 Eno wine bar, however, earns praise from discerning diners for its master sommelier selections, and travelers also appreciate the hearty plates served at Michael Jordan's Steakhouse. 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.

    Kimpton Hotel Allegro
    Chicago, IL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1037 reviewsTripAdvisor (1037)

    This Kimpton brand property inside the Loop offers a convenient home base for both business and leisure travelers. Recent guests were not only impressed with the complimentary service – which include the brand's signature pet amenities and evening wine receptions – but also the stylish accommodations. Rooms feature modern decor made up of gold and black hues, but some said late night street noise can be a problem. Recent guests recommend booking a room on the upper floors for a quieter stay. Still, each room does come equipped with creature comforts like an HD flat-screen TV and an iHome alarm clock. What's more, discerning travelers praise the Kimpton Hotel Allegro's customer service: Guests describe the employees here as warm and welcoming. The 312 Chicago restaurant is also popular with hotel guests and Chicagoans alike for its top-notch Italian cuisine. Meanwhile, members of the Kimpton Karma loyalty program can receive special benefits, like complimentary Wi-Fi, when staying here.

    Crowne Plaza Springfield
    Springfield, IL
    3.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 448 reviewsTripAdvisor (448)
    Free WiFi

    The Crowne Plaza Springfield sits right on the outskirts of the city, about 6 miles from downtown Springfield, Illinois. The location puts guests within driving distance of destinations like the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and the University of Illinois at Springfield. Each of the 288 guest rooms features Wi-Fi access and plush bedding. Travelers who choose to stay here also gain access to the fitness center and indoor pool. Multiple guest reviews note that the staff here – from the front desk to the on-site restaurant, bar and bakery – are incredibly friendly and helpful, but because the hotel sits on Interstate 72, noise can be an issue. Ask about the Dedicated Quiet Zone, where rooms are positioned to keep noise and outside distractions at a minimum. Part of the IHG Hotels family, this hotel allows IHG Rewards Club members to earn and redeem points.
