There’s nothing like a great staycation or vacation right? I recently stayed at the InterContinental Chicago and enjoyed a night away from home. It is a great spot to get away and the location is AMAZING. It’s close to all the shopping, the view of the lake, and there are tons of food options around including a yummy Michael Jordan Steakhouse inside the hotel! Take a peek at my photos and there was the prettiest surprise at the hotel!
Walking into the front, there is a Starbucks on the left side and Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse right inside the lobby. You know how much I love food and I hit both while staying at the hotel.
Checking in was super easy and I was able to do it at 2 pm which is earlier than most! My room was ready and I got a few hours to relax before meeting a friend for dinner.
I had a late lunch at Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse and I was soo hungry that I scarfed down my Caesar Salad with large shrimp before even taking an iPhone picture. It was so delicious, I would go back to just eat the salad. It was filled with a good crowd and I would say most were ordering steak. As we approach winter months, a hotel with a great spot to eat is a must have.
I stayed in a room with two full beds with a girlfriend and the comfy beds were perfect for catching up on work, reading, and I slept perfectly.
We had a view of the Wrigley building, but it was hard to take a photograph of it. Honestly, if you are visiting, you’ll spend a lot of time wandering Michigan Ave. as this location is the best. The shopping is amazing all down the avenue and you could go to an Architecture Tour (my favorite thing in Chicago) or eat to your heart’s content with the many restaurants surrounding the hotel.
The pool was the most amazing surprise for me! I thought I knew all the indoor pools in the area and this one is BEAUTIFUL! Full of pretty tiles and corners and after seeing this, I’d love to take my kiddos here for a surprise staycation.
Relaxing and spectacular, this pool is a must do when you stay here. And on my wishlist too is going to the spa after the pool. I didn’t have time this trip, but hopefully for next visit.
I would definitely recommend this to friend’s visiting. Location, service, affordability and the number of things you can do surrounding it is fantastic. Visit an InterContinental Hotel for your next vacation for sure.
