Junior Olympic Swimming Pool

Discover an Architectural Phenomenon

More than a Chicago hotel with an indoor pool, InterContinental Chicago features a junior-size Olympic swimming pool fit for laurel-wreathed champions. Built in 1929, the pool is an architectural phenomenon — decorated with Spanish Majolica tiles and supported by a sturdy system used by railroad bridges. Our 14th-floor indoor Chicago hotel pool is one of the oldest in Chicago, the biggest in the country, and perhaps the most beautiful in the world.
