The InterContinental Chicago is regarded as one the finest luxury hotels of the Midwest. And it is the only hotel located in what many consider the Windy City's most magnificent area on Michigan Avenue, the Miracle Mile. Upscale shoppers define this one-mile stretch, which is lined with exclusive high-end shops, renowned restaurants and vaunted museums, as an experience to die for. Nearby there are social activities and attractions involving arts, sciences, major sports events, theater and opera, such as the Art Institute of Chicago, the Terra Museum and the Shedd Aquarium plus Wrigley Field and White Sox Park,
which is the home of MLB's 2005 World Series champs, the Chicago White Sox.
The original, historically rich 1920's architectural style remains intact, while the 807 guest rooms and suites are newly refurbished and luxuriantly enriched. And for business or social events, there is over 40,000 square feet of flexible event space, including
six ballrooms. There is an indoor pool on the fifth floor, a 24-hour fitness center and live jazz acts on weekends at the Salon lounge. The distinct high-rise hotel is part of the stalwart InterContinental Hotels Group. Read all about this fabulous inn at www.icchicagohotel.com
