Located in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, ACME Hotel is bringing the personality. Bold art, outstanding technology and a locale that reflects the neighborhood’s vibrant nightlife are just a few of the attractions.

Traditional guests will appreciate that several room options offer stunning city views and spa-inspired bathrooms, while those looking for the modern will be satisfied by the technology available. Alexa is just one high-tech amenity offered to guests. The Amazon Echo system can serve as a personal assistant, offering several options with just the sound of a guest’s voice. Guests can also check out an apple watch for use during their stay and even check out a hotspot for use out and about the city.

Between is ACME’s combination retreat and communal workspace, ideal for indulging in lounge time with a group or in the hotel’s bottomless coffee. Guests are able to connect to a hub and tackle to-do lists between meetings or personal plans. A DIY snack bar serves as the cherry on top for a session of catching up on emails or enjoying the cozy seating available.

The indoor West Town Bakery, a neighborhood favorite, serves up local and organic pastries, grab-and-go sandwiches and other baked goods.

Bunny Slope combines the '60s, ski lodges, drinks, and hot tubs. One of nine concepts by The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group, the Bunny Slope invites visitors indulging in a post-ski drink to a new bar setting. Decorated with snowflakes and inspired by winter activity, Bunny Slope is a kitschy take on a cocktail lounge. The Bunny Slope is available for private events.

Another area offered is Bodega, a bar that serves as a place to work by day and a site for locals to enjoy a beverage by night. With creatively boozy drinks like spiked sodas and slushies on the menu, guests have all sorts of fun beverages to sip on.

ACME’s acclaimed on-site bar, The Berkshire Room, presents an old-world aesthetic with modern elements. The front of the bar is made of overlapping leather belts and flooring is genuine terrazzo from the original ACME hotel. Craft cocktails are available from Beverage Director Benjamin Schiller and bar snacks are as upscale as the venue is.

Situated near the Mag Mile and among the core of the city’s other restaurants, ACME is sure to appeal to visiting planners. Its combination of unique spaces makes it a popular night spot in the area for guests and locals alike.

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.
