... Local which was part of the Hilton hotel on Delaware Place. The food and service was great and there was ample to choose from their menu. As typical Scots we played safe and went for the Beer Battered Fish and Chips. The staff were very good, when I commented that the food cooled very quickly because of the breeze that had picked up they brought us another large complimentary portion of very hot homecooked chips.

It was a really great moment for someone Army and all of us. The Mets were winning for most of it but the Cubs tied it in the 8th inning and in the 9th we looked at each other and thought it was deja vu. In Cleveland we saw a tied game in the 9th and the Indians hit a walk off 2-run home ...

I wish you could spend time looking at the pics and portraits and learning the history but finding hours when Miller's is not busy would be difficult. The Palmer House is very old and very historic. I am sure it's even haunted. The first Palmer House was destroyed in the Chicago Fire. The Empire ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Chicago

    VERY NICE HOTEL

    from

    We booked this for our family of 5 May 23-25. Hardly a room to be found in Chicago due to very large convention. We got this room on Priceline for $119. Upon arrival at hotel, check in was quick, free upgrade to historic tower 19th floor, view of Magnificent Mile... Beautiful hotel. Very clean. Great bell captains. Have been to Chicago 3 times and this was definitely the best location. Have also stayed at Hyatt Regency on Wacker and Wyndham, this was as nice or nicer than both.

    Pleasantly Surprised

    from

    I booked a room for my husband and myself the week before on Priceline for this past Saturday night. I had read some of the not-so-good reviews on this site and was a little wary. We arrived right at check-in and even though there was a line due to a convention in town, our wait was less than 10 minutes. We got our choice of a higher or lower floor and our room was clean, spacious for downtown Chicago, and well appointed. I highly recommend this hotel in the heart of Chicago!!!

    Avoid this hotel!

    Stayed here for two nights, this easter weekend. We had booked an upgraded "historic tower" room and paid $159 a night. What a mistake that was. The room was a non-smoking room and smelled of stale smoke.

    Big Room but lousy Wi-Fi

    from

    I stayed at the Inter-Continental for four days in mid-March. I joined the frequent guest program (Priority Rewards) and was solicited for an upgrade to "ambassador" status. I spent the extra $150 for the priviledge, but wish I had saved my money. I was given a room in the historic tower on the 20th floor but it overlooked a series of HVAC compressor fans on the roof of what I assume was part of the hotel (not very pretty). The room was large and decorated tastefully.

    Loved it

    from

    I was there the last week in January 2004. I booked a cheapie rate of $99 online, no refunds allowed. I was expecting a standard room in the main (modern) tower so I was delighted to get a room on the 30th floor of the historic tower. The room was sumptious, fit for a honeymoon, too bad I was alone, ha. My marble bathroom was bigger than the whole hotel room and bath I had just had in NYC (and for half the price!) I had 3 large windows that looked down Michigan Avenue. I didnt have much interaction with the staff but they seemed pleasant. The housekeeper was unobtrusive and the turn down service was an added luxury (they even filled the ice bucket!)

    Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!

    from

    We stayed here through Hotwire and got an amazingly low rate- $60 some odd dollars nightly for a 2 night stay last May. The room they had us in was small and had no view of anything except the wall of the other part of the hotel, but it was very clean, tastefully decorated and cozy. We had a great vacation, walking all over town until we ended up near the Planetarium which was where we then turned around and saw the skyline of Chicago and were just wow. So anyway, the hotel is great, the service was great, the room was very nice- I would recommend this hotel to anyone though I work at the front desk of a hotel myself and the previous person's comment about how she wasn't able to get adjoining rooms, well, internet sites don't guarantee things like that anyway- you've got to call the hotel direct and verify things like that. There's a note about that on internet sites as well- no room type/location is guaranteed.

    Family Friendly ????

    from

    My family recently spent a week-end in Chicago at the Intercontinental Chicago Hotel. Because we have three children(ages 9,8 &3 yrs.) we were required to purchase two rooms. When I booked with an on-line travel company I stated that we would need adjoining rooms. We were not given adjoining rooms instead our second room was across the hall and five rooms down. We called the front desk and were told that everything was booked and that we should have specified connecting rooms not adjoining ones. The staff was unconcerned and unwilling to make any changes. Since my adult sister was with us she agreed to share her room with our eight and nine year olds. This would have been fine except that on the second night my eight year old was sleep walking (not a common occurence) and left her aunt's room to look for her mother. Amazingly she did make it to my door and knocked very lightly. It was 2:47 am and luckily I had gotten up to go to the bathroom or I would not have heard her knock. Needless to say I didn't get any sleep thinking of what could have happened to my child. She had no knowledge of the incident the next morning. My sister said she had heard something but the air conditioner was so loud she didn't realize it was her niece opening the door. I am not placing blame on the hotel for my daughter's sleep walking, however,if we had been in adjoining rooms as requested, my daughter could have simply walked safely through the adjoining door. The incident along with the obvious lack of concern from staff has definitely jaded my opinion of this hotel and I would not stay there again and would not recommend it to other families.

    Always Excellent!

    from

    I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions, and it is unique in combining a storied past (as the Shriner's Atheltic Club) with a top-notch restoration and impeccable service.

    Expected more! Considering the Price was steep!

    from

    The location is great!!! Really is centrally located. The hotel is beautiful, casual elegence is abound everywhere. The pool is awesome. Wish there was a hot tub/whirlpool, kiddie pool area. The service left a lot to be desired. Long wait for check in/ check out. GUESTS FELT INVISIBLE TO STAFF!! VERY FEW OF THE STAFF in SERVICE END SPOKE OR UNDERSTOOD ENGLISH. Come on this is AMERICA SPEAK AND UNDERSTAND ENGLISH!!! Stay in the historic rooms. The room was beautiful. The bar had live jazz on Sat. night and was reasonably priced. The breakfast buffet is the Bomb! The Loop has a stop next to the hotel as well as the free trolly is across the street. Stay was OK but not what I expected from a 4 star hotel. Chicago was phenominal would go again but stay elsewhere for that kind of money- I EXPECT TO BE NOTICED AND UNDERSTAND WHAT I'M ASKING!

    Excellent

    from

    We stayed on business for 10 days in January 2003.Our room was fabulous - they gave us a one room suite with 2 full bathrooms for $199/ night. We had no complaints. The location was perfect - right on Mich ave. My husband used the swimming pool, which he liked, as well.All business hotels should aspire to be this professional.
