Dive Into Our Legacy on Magnificent Mile

Long before the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile opened, our opulent building at 505 North Michigan Avenue was the city’s preeminent athletic club so, not surprisingly, health and wellness are in our DNA. Though the Medinah Athletic Club’s original facilities are long gone, some striking features remain, including our massive junior Olympic swimming pool complete with its original 1920s-era Spanish Majolica tiles.

Indoor Pool

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