Champagne Wishes and Strawberry Dreams: InterContinental Chicago's Girls Getaway

Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries at Intercontinental Chicago

There's nothing quite like entering your Michigan Avenue hotel suite to find a bottle of champagne chilling in the ice bucket next to a tray of chocolate covered strawberries. As soon as you enter you feel spoiled, pampered, appreciated.

With InterContinental Chicago's Girls Getaway Package, this is just the beginning.

The package is a full set of amenities that will have you feeling like a one percent-er. In your Executive Tower room, which will be upgraded to a Suite based on availability, will be an envelope containing a slew of goodies. While you're sipping on that Champagne you can schedule your private Color Bar™‎ Party at Kendra Scott, a complimentary “Bay Breeze” conditioning hair treatment with a purchase of a blowout at Drybar, and get 15% off tickets to #DateMe at The Second City's UP Comedy Club.

With your evening planned, you head downstairs to ENO Wine Bar for your bottle of wine and your cheese plate. You can choose one of their cheese flights, or they'll customize one based on your preferences. Then your server can help you pick a perfect wine to accompany your selections.

TLTip: if it's nice outside, take advantage of their patio seating. Located on Illinois around the corner from Michigan Avenue, you can see the hustle and bustle without being hustled and bustled.

When you return to your room for the night you'll find the most delightful tray of truffles with your turn-down service.

In the morning, you take your $25 Starbucks gift card to the lobby and get your pick-me-up to start the day, although with your in-room Keurig you can use it on your way out.

Although it's called the Girls getaway, you can bring a guy. I brought my husband with me and we both immensely enjoyed this "suite" of amenities (although for some reason he wanted to skip the color bar and the blowout...):

  • Overnight accommodations in Executive Tower
  • Complimentary upgrade to Suite upon check in based on availability
  • Strawberries & Champagne upon arrival
  • Bottle of wine and cheese plate at ENO Wine Bar
  • $25 Starbucks gift card
  • Exclusive discounts at select retailers including:
    • A private Color Bar™‎ Party at Kendra Scott, with 15% off all purchases
    • 15% off tickets to #DateMe at The Second City’s UP Comedy Club
    • A complimentary “Bay Breeze” conditioning hair treatment with a purchase of a blowout at Drybar

When you want to feel spoiled, grab your favorite girl (or guy) friend and call the InterContinental Chicago at 800-628-2112 for pricing and availability.

InterContinental Chicago hosted us while I researched "The Local Tourist's Guide to North Michigan Avenue." I know, rough job.
