A highly acclaimed gem in the Chicago hotel scene, the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel is inviting guests to elevate their stay with the introduction of its new Best of Chicago Package.

Beginning Nov. 1 with prices starting at $199 per night, this package allows guests to explore all that the Windy City has to offer. Beyond a stay in one of the hotel’s 792 luxurious rooms, the package offers guests the choice of two tickets to one of six Chicago-centric activities. To top off a day of exploration, the package also offers guests a taste of the hotel’s signature Chicago Truffle Skyline. (Think a delicious array of dessert truffles crafted to resemble the iconic skyline.)

Embrace your curiosity at the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere with general admission tickets to the Museum of Science and Industry, or plan your own adventure with tickets to the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel. For those looking for a thrill, look no further than 1,353 feet above the Chicago cityscape through the iconic Ledge at Skydeck Chicago.

Whether you’re looking to heighten your experience or just want to skip the lines, this package also offers guests a handful of VIP tickets to select destinations. Choose from the full VIP experience at the Shedd Aquarium, gaining total access to all exhibits and any special experiences like the Shedd’s current Underwater Beauty exhibit. For those with an artistic edge, VIP tickets to The Art Institute of Chicago provide guests with all-inclusive exhibit access, priority entry admission, guided tours and non-ticketed special exhibitions.

In addition to these ticket options, the hotel’s VIP tickets to The Field Museum include access to all regular exhibits, admission into the 3D theater, Underground Adventure, Cyrus Tang Hall of China and all special exhibits within the museum. Whereas general admission tickets only allow access to collection galleries and special exhibitions, these exclusive passes allow guests to explore all that the museum has to offer.

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Jumpstarting tourism in cities across the country will be more complicated than simply opening doors again – especially in cities with large populations like Chicago. However, working together proves more effective, and in Chicago, more than 250 businesses are banding together to join Choose Chicago’s new initiative, Tourism & Hospitality Forward. It bolsters a safe reopening that encourages tourism as well as meetings and events in

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
