InterContinental Magnificent Mile Overview

Located in the heart of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile and one block from the Chicago River, the InterContinental Hotel provides an elegant space for your big day. Originally built in 1929 as the Medinah Athletic Club, a luxury men's club for members of the Shrine organization. After a multi-million dollar renovation, the hotel has been restored to its former glory. Imagine an elegant ceremony in the Renaissance room. Surrounded by ornate woods and the grandeur of a time gone by, your friends and family will witness your vows in a spacious room filled with natural light. After your magical nuptials, your dream reception unfolds in the Grand Ballroom. Located on the seventh floor with a balcony one story above, the stunning room is designed in an unusual elliptical shape. Around the ceiling are 37 hand-painted murals of classical landscape scenes that were taken down and restored by the artist who consulted on the restoration of the Sistine Chapel. He also added 24-karat gold leaf to the moldings surrounding the paintings and the 12,000-pound Baccarat crystal chandelier, the largest in North America. Dinner and dancing in this opulent space will wow your guests and provide you with wedding memories to last a lifetime.
