5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The property's Newer feel, well apportioned rooms, friendly staff and complimentary wifi, cocktails, and breakfast make the Kinzie hotel a great pick for any Chicago stay. Highly recommended. Will definitely stay here again. Can't beat the terrific river north location either!

A friend and I stayed in this hotel late December for two days and two nights. We absolutely loved the ambient of the hotel! The service you provided was phenomenal, from check-ining with Jerry whom made check-in super smooth to the cleanliness of our room. Our first morning there, I woke up late thinking I had missed breakfast, since the... More

We stayed here one night just to hangout downtown. We used a Groupon and got a good price. I don't know that paying the extra money for a Deluxe City View King room was worth it though for 2 reasons: 1. The hotel isn't that tall so your view in general is nothing to write home about 2. We didn't... More

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel. The room was big, comfortable and clean. The continental breakfast was included. It was a self service on every floor in front of the elevator. You have to put what you want on your tray and then come back to the room for enjoy breakfast. The location is the best thing. The hotel... More

AS the title says this hotel was great.Great front desk and doormen, always greeting us with a hello and a smile. The evening reception staff was also great. The breakfast was fine, but.....3 of the 4 mornings we did not have breakfast on our floor as advertised as one of the amenities at the Kinzie. Because of "low occupancy" on... More

This is a great hotel in a prime location in Chicago. The weather was not so cold so I was able to walk everywhere. Rate includes continental breakfast, which is set up on each floor outside the elevators, for your convenience as they don't have an on-site restaurant. Although it was kind of basic (continental after all), it was plentiful... More
