|Welcome to the InterContinental Chicago, one of the city's most luxurious hotels and landmarks -located in the heart on Chicago's famed "Magnificent Mile". The hotel was originally built in 1929 as the Medinah Athletic Club, an exclusive men's club for members of the Shrine Organization. This unique hotel combines historic charm with contemporary elegance and modern efficiency. Referenced in architectural tours of Chicago, the hotel displays a stunning blend of architecture and art from all over the world.
InterContinental Hotels, renowned for its international portfolio of historic restorations, purchased the property in 1988 and immediately began renovations. It was the original athletic club's 1930 yearbook, the SCIMITAR, which guided much of the original work which was used to replicate the restore entire rooms - right down to the detailing in the draperies, carpets, and murals, throughout the entire hotels.
InterContinental Hotels recently engineered another multi-million dollar, sweeping renovation completed in 2001, featuring the four-story lobby with grand staircase and cast bronze ornamentation, 807 newly refurbished guest rooms and suites, and over 40,000 square feet of choice conference and banquet facilities, all resulting in a brilliant merger of old-world elegance with 21st-century craftsmanship.
