An excellent choice in downtown Chicago. Check in very smooth, wonderful eve receptions, pretty fair morning breakfast and internet all included. Very courteous staff and perfect location. Nothing but good things to say about the place. Will definitely stay there again.

This hotel is a jewel. Great location close to the Chicago river and just a few blocks to Michigan avenue. The room was delightful and well appointed. The beds were comfey as well the best part and totally unexpected was the continental breakfast laid out on each floor. There was no need to traipse to the lobby. Plenty of coffee,yogurt,fruit...

Fantastic hotel. I remember this building as the IBM building. It appears many floors were converted into hotel rooms - a hotel room that I now use as a reference point for a hotel done right. The entrance to the hotel was awkward and we did not visit the lobby area restaurant or bar, unfortunately. They did look beautiful.

This hotel is really good; all the basics in place. The happy hour offering with the "grab and go" breakfast adds to the value =)! Very good service also. But, the key thing is the location. It's extremely well and centrally located. We Europeans appreciate that the key attractions are within a walking distance =D

I booked 1 night at the Kinzie using a Groupon, confirming via phone the week before our stay. The receptionist told me we had a King Suite. Upon checking in, we were greeted promptly by a bellhop and receptionist. There were cookies and a Keurig available at the front desk for guest use. When we checked out, we were hoping... More

The Kinzie had wonderful service, complimentary snacks and beverages, and very clean rooms. I am very picky about where I stay and the cleansliness of hotels. This hotel exceeded my expectations by a multitude. Beautiful decor and a fun atmosphere. I will definitely be coming back!

Stayed here for three nights. Loved the location, close to restaurants, shopping, art institute, Milennium park and more. Hotel staff did a good job and our room was big and had a real comfy bed. Fitness room had several cardio machines and some free weights (dumbbells). The free breakfast consisted of pastries, cereals, etc. We had breakfast at Yolk instead... More
