The Intercontinental is located on the Magnificent Mile and is perfect for walking to, just about, anywhere you want to go. I had a conference at the Gleacher Center, just down the street. We were able to walk to many excellent restaurants, shopping, and transportation. The hotel was very clean and pretty friendly. The price is high, for the size of the room, but everything else is high class. Just know that the valet parking is $65/night. I ate lunch at the Michael Jordan Steakhouse, located right there in the hotel. I would not hesitate to stay here again when visiting Chicago!
