Why We Like This Place

The InterContinental Chicago is a wedding planner's—and a bride's!—dream venue:
  • The event spaces are stunning: Step into the elegant, elliptical Grand Ballroom and you'll be dazzled by marble columns, a Baccarat crystal chandelier hanging from the gold-leaf domed ceiling, and a sweeping balcony. The Renaissance Ballroom exudes opulence, from its ornately painted ceiing beams and rare, elm burlwood-paneled walls to its five Baccarat crystal chandeliers. In King Arthur's Court Ballroom, a wall of stained glass makes a luminous backdrop for a ceremony or reception.
  • Each ballroom is on its own floor, which means privacy and exclusivity for your celebration.
  • The hotel couldn't have a better location. Situated along Michigan Avenue's Magnificent Mile, it's close to great shopping, entertainment, museums and theater. The Concierge is happy to help you plan your activities.
  • Service is impeccable: The hotel has received a AAA, 4-Diamond rating for 17 years.
  • Wedding packages include lots of amenities, such as brocade linens, china and charger plates with classic and contempory patterns, crystal stemware and silver flatware.
