InterContinental Chicago goes dark for Earth Hour

This is something I love. In recognition of Earth Hour, the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile will be drastically reducing their lighting from 8:30 - 9:30 p.m. on March 29. Large hurricane lanterns will be placed throughout the lobby. Can you imagine how lovely it will look by candlelight?

There will also be a fun, historic flashlight tour and the building's dome will go dark for the hour.

Candlelit Lobby:  The hotel team will significantly lower the lighting in the lobby and check-in desks.  Large hurricane lanterns will decorate the lobby, conserving energy and enveloping the area in a candlit glow.

Historic Tour in the Dark:  For the hour, InterContinental's Historic Guided IPod Tour, where guests can explore the history of King Arthur Court, the famed Olympic-sized Pool, and Ball Room while enjoying the essence of the hotel's architectural details will be dark. Guests will be given battery-operated flashlights to guide their way.

Darken the Dome:  The famed InterContinental Dome, which sits upon the 42-story hotel and rotates over 70 colorful shades throughout the year, will go dark for the hour.

Additionally, those looking to celebrate Earth Hour with a cocktail can visit Michael Jordan's Steak House, located inside the hotel, to enjoy their Lights Out cocktail with Brovo #14 Amoro, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Death's Door Gin and lime juice.

The InterContinental Chicago was the first hotel to receive an Energy Star rating, as well as a silver certification from Green Seal and StayGreen recognition from the Illinois Hotel and Lodging Association. The property continues its commitment to "green" performance by modernizing its programming with innovative, energy-conserving technology and eco-friendly beauty products.
