Overview

Welcome to the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile, one of the most beautiful landmark hotels in history. With its unique architecture and cultural diversity, it was originally built in 1929 as the Medinah Athletic Club, a luxury men's club for members of the Shrine organization. Unfortunately, in 1934 the club had been a victim of the stock-market crash and was forced to close its doors.

InterContinental Hotels, renowned for its international portfolio of extraordinary restorations, bought the property in 1988, and immediately began renovations. A quarter of a billion dollars and 12 years later, this truly magnificent InterContinental Chicago hotel was re-introduced to Chicago.

It was the contribution of the original athletic club's 1930 yearbook, the SCIMITAR, which guided the original restoration work. Donated by a club member, the book was of invaluable assistance during the restoration process. Its black-and-white photographs were used to duplicate and restore entire rooms, right down to the detailing in draperies, carpets, and murals. Completed in 2001, the four-story lobby, with grand staircase and cast bronze ornamentation, has resulted in harmonious merging of old-world elegance with 21st-century craftsmanship. Today, each floor of the hotel represents a myriad of cultures and eras. The public areas available for viewing provide a glimpse of the rich history of the building.

When the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile opened its doors in 1990, it was presented as a gift to the city of Chicago. Since then it has been the recipient of numerous awards for both its architecture and design. It has been the scene for important events, and the hotel's guests have included international dignitaries, politicians, and Hollywood celebrities. We are very proud of our hotel, both for its beautiful d├ęcor and the service we provide to match it. InterContinental Chicago stands proudly among the other InterContinental restorations around the world, including the Willard InterContinental in Washington, D.C., the Mark Hopkins InterContinental San Francisco, Le Grand InterContinental in Paris, and many more. InterContinental Hotels Group operates more than 150 hotels on six continents.
