After looking at a number of different hotel ballrooms downtown we settled on the InterContinental for a variety of reasons. We worked closely with Tara Hubbard who was incredibly professional. She was responsive, friendly, and wanted to help us to turn some loose ideas into a magnificent event. Over the course of 10 months Tara provided us with constant insight and feedback and she was always truthful with her suggestions. Beyond Tara, the staff throughout the entire hotel was incredibly accommodating. The food was incredible -- and we had a few particular requests -- the service was attentive and always on time, and everyone throughout the hotel went out of their way to make sure we had the best weekend. Outside of the ballroom itself there are so many incredible spaces throughout the hotel for pictures, for your guests to enjoy throughout their stay, or for other events throughout your wedding weekend. Furthermore, the location of the hotel cannot be beat -- if you have out of town guests they will love being on Michigan Avenue, and you and your bridal party will be able to walk just a few minutes to include great Chicago landmarks in your photos.Sent on 01/03/2019

Intercontinental Chicago! The know how to throw one heck of a wedding!!
My daughter recently got married at the Intercontinental on Michigan Ave. in Chicago. Is was the most beautiful wedding ever and the staff at the Intercontinental helped make that possible. Chris Schmidt was absolutely the best to work with. He took us in like we were family. It was the first place we looked at and nothing else could even come close. Melissa Chavez helped with the booking of all the rooms and making our stay as comfortable as ever. The wedding was three weeks ago and I still have calls coming in from friends and family saying it was the best wedding ever. I have three more kids getting married. If I have anything to say about it, they will be at the Intercontinental.Sent on 04/25/2019

This is the MOST GORGEOUS PLACE in all of Chicago to have a wedding. Daughter was married Jan. 2019 with the reception held in the Renaissance Room. EVERYTHING from room decor, service, food, hor d’ oeuvres etc. was literally TOP NOTCH!! If you want the BEST OF EVERYTHING you must hold your wedding here. It is expensive but worth EVERY PENNY....... Chris Schmidt is the ‘go to guy’ to work with. He had everything under control. Very organized and professional.Sent on 03/03/2019
My husband and I have been to a countless number of weddings over the last 40 years from outdoor, traditional and country club settings. This place surpasses ALL BY FAR in EVERY POSSIBLE WAY!! The 5 stars is strictly for the venue itself.
My only two complaints are that my daughter and new husband should have been given a fresh clean bridal suite after all the festivities were over. Instead they were to use the same suite that the bridesmaids, hair designer, makeup people etc. used to get ready in all morning. Was kind of a mess as coats, gloves etc were left behind by bridal party causing unnecessary interruptions to what should have been the couples alone time. Also, we had plenty of ‘overnighters’ staying at the hotel for one or two nights and my husband and I were extremely disappointed with front desk service, and the connoisseur woman. All were very rude and not helpful in any way. This hotel is very confusing enough to get around in with different sets of elevators to get you to the building with your room number, which is never explained, causing many guests frustration. Unfortunately there were many other issues, which I wont get into, that should not have added any irritability to an otherwise perfect day and event. Zero stars for hotel front personnel.
