  • Experience the “Best of Chicago” with InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel

    POSTED October 29, 2019

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.

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.
