Already an iconic property in Chicago’s bustling commercial district, the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile is now offering guests a new way to see the city this summer.

InterContinental guests can easily enjoy the shopping, upscale restaurants and city attractions that surround the property or hotel amenities like the InterContinental’s junior Olympic-size indoor pool, but the with the introduction of its new Summer Scavenger Hunt Package, the InterContinental team’s created a fun and stress-free challenge to get guests out and exploring 30 of Chicago’s most iconic landmarks.

“Traveling to Chicago during warm, summer months is exciting, but it can be overwhelming," says Pete Demay, general manager of InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel. "With so much to do and see, it can be tough for our guests to decide which attractions are really worth experiencing. The Summer Scavenger Hunt package truly was created to take the headache out of planning your summer vacation. It’s everything you need to explore Chicago like a local.”

The family-friendly package, available now through the end of September, includes overnight accommodations, a complimentary breakfast for two children, an in-room milk and cookie treat, an adventure backpack (complete with a Lincoln the Lion plush lion teddy, coloring book, coloring pencils and travel journal), and a Chicago scratch-off scavenger hunt kit with dozens of destinations to explore. The hunt leads visitors on a self-guided sightseeing walking tour to site like The Chicago Theatre, The Rookery, the John Hancock Center and Millennium Park where guests can scratch off the icon on their map to reveal a fun fact, highlight or activity.

“With the help of Lincoln the Lion and his expertise of local destinations, guests will be able to get a taste of the city we are proud to call home. We aim to create memorable experiences for each of our guests and look forward to being part of many families’ memories for years to come,” Demay says.

Located in the heart of the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, Hotel Drover, an award-winning Autograph Collection Hotel by Marriott, focuses on simple pleasures and genuine hospitality. Kick-off your boots and stay awhile with 200 rustic-luxe rooms and suites. When ready, grab a hand-crafted cocktail or cold beer and wander outside to The Backyard at Hotel Drover, an outdoor oasis, with creekside seating, outdoor games, and seasonal live music.

 

In 1927, Hilton Hotels founder Conrad Hilton said, "Abilene, Texas will be well prepared to handle large conventions and please the most fastidious visitor." Nearly 95 years later, Abilene has fulfilled this vision and is excited to welcome back the Hilton family of hotels in the heart of Downtown Abilene with a recently announced DoubleTree by Hilton.
