Travel: Birthday Trip in Downtown Chicago

          HOTEL: Intercontinental Chicago
 
Location: Magnificent Mile
Stars: 4 1/2
Price: $139 a night
Includes a Starbucks and Micheal Jordan's Restaurant
 
This hotel is very upscale and beautiful. It's around many shops/restaurants and not too far from the Water Tower, the staff was very accommodating, and we got a great deal for this hotel using Hotwire. It is an older hotel so there were some minor chippings in certain areas of the room and the toilet/ sink were a little outdated. I didn't get a chance to swing by the pool area, but judging by the pictures I'm pretty sure it's very nice. Just remember that when you get there they are going to need to hold about $100 at the most for your room either from your card or just plain old cash. They need to hold cash for your room just in case you want to charge anything to your room. If you use a card make sure the name matches the name on your ID. If you don't spend any of the cash they will return it and it will take about 3-5 days for the money to be put back into your account. I'm so grateful we got to stay at such a nice hotel with sweet and polite people surrounding it. I most certainly recommend this hotel if you are need for one now or in the near future.
