InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel reveals phase one of a multimillion-dollar project to restore its meeting and events spaces. Phase one revitalized several of the property’s ballrooms and pre-function space. As a property on the National Register of Historic Places, the restoration represents a fine-tuned balance of old and new with modern efficiencies complemented by the hotel’s Gatsby-Era charm.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to revitalize our beloved property,” says Pete Demay, general manager of the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel “As a historic landmark, we work diligently each and every day to ensure guests enjoy the full experience of the hotel’s legacy. This restoration has enhanced the design of the hotel’s meeting and event space, while maintaining the beautiful qualities of its legendary, original architecture.”

Executed by Whitespace Interiors, phase one of the restoration project creates an atmosphere that is ideal for meetings and events of all sizes. Subdued hues celebrate the property’s unique character by highlighting the space’s bold patterns and intricate crystal-dipped chandeliers.

Phase two of the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel is set to be completed in early 2020.

This summer, the Chicago riverfront welcomed its newest restaurant: Pizzeria Portofino

The sun-drenched casual restaurant is filled with breezy decor that will instantly transport you to the Italian Riviera. Inside, guests dine amidst white-washed wood, colorful shutters, and playful striped booths as they look out onto the beautiful water and Chicago’s historic architecture outside.  

 

InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile has announced the launch of its Dive-In Movie series, a classic, child-friendly summer film series inside the hotel's historic indoor pool. Beginning at sunset every Saturday night through Labor Day, guests can grab a bag of freshly popped popcorn and complimentary inflatables to enjoy a full-length feature film projected on the hotel's 80-foot jumbo screen.

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
