InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile debuts renovated Executive Tower
April 9, 2015: The InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile has completed a comprehensive renovation of the Michigan Avenue hotel’s Historic Tower, now officially renamed as the Executive Tower. This new look provides visitors with enhanced guest rooms and suites with modern amenities and design. Beginning in January 2015, the 13 million dollar renovation of 315 guest rooms and corridors marks the full renovation of the entire hotel, which updated 477 rooms of its Grand Tower and Presidential Suite in 2013 and 2014.
The interior design of the Executive Tower combines many elements of architectural styles from the hotel’s origination as the luxury Medinah Men’s Athletic Club by the Shriner’s Organization. Although not religiously based, the Shriner’s commonly used Moorish Revival Architecture and a contemporary interpretation of this style reflects in the renovated rooms.
Characteristic elements found in Moorish design features domes, lancet and ogee arches - all of which are present throughout the hotel’s Executive Tower. With a dramatic palette of whites and deep greys, complemented by pops of jewel-tone colors, the updated rooms create a modern, yet cozy respite for travelers. Marble-topped nightstands, colorful chairs and throw pillows, shimmered wallpaper and textured headboards add a contemporary feel to the fresh space.
Reservations for rooms in the Executive Tower can be made and rates begin at $249 per night. Call +1-(800) 628-2112 for reservations or visit www.icchicagohotel.com
