I have stayed at the Intercontinental twice for weekend stays in the last 6 months, so I clearly like the hotel. In each case, though, I got a pretty good rate that made it attractive to me.
Nice location on Michigan Avenue near the river, Wrigley Building, across from Nordstrom.
Very interesting historical property with cool lobby---always buzzing with activity. Good bar. Had brunch at hotel once and thought it was just OK. Amazing indoor pool.
Rooms are good, not great. I have only stayed in the newer wing. They are mostly updated, but still have a few 60's era remnants, like metal doors in bathrooms.
All in all, its a very solid choice in Chicago, and should provide a very pleasant stay, but its probably not my top choice.
