Crown Jewel of Michigan Avenue. Chicago is defined by superb architecture, and the InterContinental Chicago Hotel is a paragon. This opulent address opens its doors onto the Magnificent Mile. A legend since 1929, the building maintains the grandeur of the Roaring Twenties with historic design around every corner. Each guest room blends the city's distinct spirit, the comforts of home, and the sophistication of an urban resort - a destination hotel, embracing the contemporary traveler’s tastes while paying homage to the rich history.
A Historical Gem Among Chicago Hotels. The preeminent luxury hotel in Chicago wasn’t always a hotel. Built-in 1929 as the exclusive Medinah Athletic Club, the opulent building at 505 North Michigan Avenue was constructed with larger-than-life architectural details: a bronze doorway, marble columns, a grand staircase, cast-bronze friezes, and painted ceilings.
Top-Tier Amenities in The Heart of Chicago. More than a hotel, the InterContinental Chicago is a true urban resort, a respite from the bustling streets of Magnificent Mile. As your home-away-from-home, the service focuses on all the small details you expect (such as complimentary Agraria bath products) paired with the larger-than-life surprises you don’t (check out the Junior Olympic Swimming Pool).
Dive Into the Legacy on Magnificent Mile - Long before the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile opened, the opulent building at 505 North Michigan Avenue was the city’s preeminent athletic club, so, not surprisingly, health and wellness are in the DNA. Though the Medinah Athletic Club’s original facilities are long gone, some striking features remain, including the massive junior Olympic swimming pool complete with its original 1920s-era Spanish Majolica tiles.
